Court documents show that Hassan claims Too’s wives Sophie and Mary have deliberately excluded her son from the funeral arrangements and that their conduct was not in her son’s best interest.

Too, a known name in both politics and business worlds, was married to Sophie and Mary – they are his only recognised widows.

But according to Hassan, the boy is Too’s biological son and was scheduled to report back to school on Wednesday yet no communication has been made regarding the payment of his school fees. “The academic future of my son is now clouded by uncertainty,” she noted.

It is also reported that Hassan was involved with Too in 1999 after she and her husband separated and she gave birth to her son in 2000.

She claims that DNA results already confirmed that Too is the child’s biological father.

Hassan is said to have sued Too to take up his responsibilities as a father and that he has been paying for the boy’s upkeep and school fees.

A court on April 5, 2011, ordered Too to give Sh35,000 for the maintenance of the child on or before the 10th of every month starting April 2011. The ruling also directed that he pays the school fees and other related expenses.

High Court judge Aggrey Muchelule directed the parties to appear in court tomorrow for an inter parties hearing.
