Ever heard the saying that “it is only the mother who knows who the real father is“? Well, many people have had to bring up kids that aren’t really theirs.
Thanks to science, through DNA testing, one can easily know whether the family he has is “indeed” his.
DNA also helps to determine a true father in the event of a dispute, in most cases ordered by the court.
There are several hospitals and clinics in Kenya that carry out DNA testing.
A DNA testing in Kenya costs from 8,000 shillings to up to 30,000 shillings depending on the type of hospital one chooses to go.
Here are some of the hospitals:

Kenyatta National Hospital (KNH) conducts DNA testing for both patients and other people who may seek the service.
At the Kenyatta National Hospital, the cost of a DNA test ranges from 20,000 shillings to 30,000 shillings.
The results are often at 99.99 percent effective.
The Nairobi Hospital
The Nairobi Hospital is another reliable facility for helping you with DNA testing, but you must be ready to empty your pockets. The tests here can go up to 100,000 shillings.
