– Gerald Erebon claimed his mother conceived him while she was 17
– The 30-year-old man believed his father was a Consolata missionary
– The man’s mother cooked for Father Mario until he was transferred
– Erebon now wants a DNA test be done even though his alleged father is not ready
A distraught Kenyan man identified as Gerald Erebon has claimed he is a biological son to an Italian Catholic priest who lived in Kenya more than three decades ago.
Erebon, who is now 30, made a passionate to meet and share his troubles with Pope Francis particularly the reality of Catholic priests having children against the church’s doctrine.
In a report filed by Italian news outlet RTL, he recalled his mother cooked for Father Mario Lacchin, a Consolata missionary, at Archers Post parish in Samburu county during which he suspected he may have been conceived.
According to him, his mother, Sabina Losirkale, became pregnant at the age of 17.
“I would like to speak with Pope Francis. I am the son of an Italian priest, a Consolata missionary. The Pope should have the need to know the reality of being the son of a Catholic priest,” he said.
Mario was soon transferred and his successor hired a black driver whom he was told was his biological father but his skin colour betrayed him as he grew up.
“During my childhood, I was very different from my brothers and relatives. I was a mixed-race boy, with a different skin color, hair and with different traits from the village children, from the schools I attended and even from my own home ,” he told Blitz Quotidiano News.
He has repeatedly met the said priest requesting for a paternity test but to no avail.
“There are people ready to witness it but he doesn’t want to know. He has never been tested for DNA because of his superiors who just want to extend the wait,” he claimed.
