Mr Lawrence Kipchumba, who hails from Eldama Ravine and has been staying at Lenah Moi's home, says he's a legitimate son of the former Safari rally ace. 

“I was born out of wedlock and mother Mary Cheruto has told me my dad is Jonathan. I have confirmed this because he participated fully in my initiation ceremony meaning that I was his son,” said Lawrence.

He described his late father as a “very generous man”, similar description given by his supposed uncle and Baringo Senator Gideon Moi over the weekend in tribute to Mr Jonathan.

The former Eldama Ravine parliamentary seat aspirant succumbed to cancer last week and plans are in place ahead or his burial. But the 36-year-old says he's not been involved in burial arrangements.

On Thursday, two more teenagers associated themselves to Mr Moi, claiming that they are also legitimate sons of the late rally driver. 

The two, Gerald Toroitich and Geoffrey Toroitich, who happen to use Jonathan's names on birth certificates, claim that he has been supporting them all through. They last met him in February.

Coincidentally, the three have been living at Lenah Moi's home in Kabimoi, a strong indication that their father knew about their existence. They have equally asked the family to recognize them.

Jonathan married Beatrice Mulwa, a niece to Nyiva Mwendwa before divorcing. He would later marry one Sylvia Toroitich, the current legally married wife.
