Usually child support in Kenya is between 30%-50% of his monthly income. After a divorce or split up, both of the parents remain financially responsible for raising the children (costs for food, housing, clothing, education, medical, etc.). It is common, especially for younger children, that the mother gets custody.

The men will be required to deposit 50% of their salaries with the children's mothers for upkeep. - The legislators will also push for the government to provide free DNA testing to mothers wanting to prove their kid's paternity.
