The middle-aged businessman is alleged to have confronted Mr Otieno, a polygamous man on several occasions over the issue but has all the time been blocked by security and family relations
Former Cabinet Minister in former president Daniel arap Moi’s government Dalmas Otieno Anyango faces a bigger challenge in his bid to capture the Migori gubernatorial seat after a businessman in the county accused him of having an affair with his wife. Mr Otieno now faces a much bigger battle than his gubernatorial bid after his accuser, 40 years younger accused him of having an affair with his legally married wife.
The businessman says Mr Otieno invaded his matrimonial bedroom and has been having an illicit love affair with his wife. John F Ochieng now suspects Mr Otieno who is set to contest for the Migori governor’s seat in next year’s elections to be the biological father of a child his wife gave birth to in December 2020.
The wife in question lives in Mombasa and she is said to have been dating Mr Otieno clandestinely since 2019. She has two other kids with John,” says a source close to the couple. The middle-aged businessman is alleged to have confronted Mr Otieno, a polygamous man on several occasions over the issue but has all the time been blocked by security and family relations.
Attempts to publish the story in the mainstream media have been blocked after the former minister used his connections to powerful people in government and the media to block the story from coming out
He wants Dalmas, who has three other wives to go for a DNA test to confirm the paternity of the child, accusing the wealthy former minister of breaking up young families. Ochieng has at the same time asked his wife to take a paternity test to determine the child’s parenthood to no avail.
Attempts to publish the story in the mainstream media have been blocked after the former minister used his connections to powerful people in government and the media to block the story from coming out. According to our sources and close relatives of the man, he has on several occasions found messages on the wife’s phone that suggest they are having a relationship.
‘John has confronted the Dalsmas on the issue and has sworn to give the 80-year-old former cabinet minister the fight of his life,’ said our source. Dalmas Otieno is not new to controversy including the controversial Thabiti Finance that went under with millions belonging to government parastatals under his ministry. He was first elected as the Member of Parliament for Rongo in 1988, serving as Minister for Industrialisation from 1988 to 1991, then later that year as Minister of Labour & Human Resource Development and as Minister of Transport from 1991 to 1996.
