Prominent Kenyan businessman and embattled Sportpesa shareholder, Paul Ndungu, has been accused of abandoning a child in Russia after an affair with a young Russian woman.

Ndungu allegedly met Natalaya Semyonova in 2016 during a business trip, and after a whirlwind romance, the lady got pregnant and later gave birth to a boy named Alexander Ndungu Semyonov.

However, it is alleged that Ndungu blocked Semyonova after being informed of the pregnancy and has not been in communication with her since the baby was born.

Ndungu has been in the news lately after being expelled from Sportpesa, a popular sports betting company in Kenya.

The board of Pevans East Africa Limited, which trades as Sportpesa, kicked him out alongside his business partner Asenath Wacera, and the two are no longer shareholders in the company.

Ndungu is currently contesting this decision and is expected to go back to court.

Last week, Pevans put out a public notice warning that Ndungu was no longer authorized to trade on behalf of the betting company.

Sportpesa CEO Ronald Karauri communicated the decision to oust Ndungu and Wacera through a letter dated January 10. The letter stated that the majority of the company’s members had unanimously resolved to expel Ndungu and Wacera from the company with immediate effect from October 8, 2022.

It also warned that having been expelled, Ndungu and Wacera lost all rights of a member and therefore had no business instituting or maintaining any suit or legal proceedings purporting to act in the name or on behalf of Pevans East Africa Ltd.

Meanwhile, photos of Semyonova, Ndungu’s alleged Russian baby mama, have surfaced online, sparking widespread outrage and condemnation from netizens.
