The Children's Court on Wednesday dismissed an application by a woman who was seeking child support from Chief Justice David Maraga.

Magistrate GM Gitonga ruled that the application by Mary Kwamboka Onyancha was not properly filed and that the applicant did not appear in court or send any lawyer to represent her.

The woman wanted child support for a six-year-old child she claimed was sired by the Chief Justice following an alleged affair in 2013.

Onyancha, who caused drama in court in June 2020, while wailing in tears said she had been filing documents in court without response.

She further that she had no lawyer to represent her or resources to hire one.

CJ Maraga's lawyer said the documents including the child's birth certificate were a forgery but his client will not pursue any defamation against the woman.

The magistrate marked the case closed.
