The woman claims she cohabited with Kipruto between 2015 and 2016 and that they had a boy but the Olympic Champion refused to take up his role as a father.

“We cohabited as husband and wife from May 2015 and were blessed with one child. Our relationship and perceived marriage has gone sour to the extent that the defendant doesn’t contact us, and doesn’t provide for the minor, leaving me to struggle alone for the welfare of the minor", the woman says in her affidavit.

The woman goes on to claim that Kipruto cut all communication between them and neglected the child hence her decision to go to court demanding sh 50,000 monthly upkeep for the child.
