Kenyans have reacted with excitement to the news that it will now be possible to conduct DNA testing in the convenience of their homes.
This comes after a home DNA test collection kit was declared available at various pharmacies at a retail cost of about Sh800, which seems to be an affordable cost for the majority of Kenyans compared to the ash 20,000 market rate for DNA tests.
Paternity issues have been a common contentious issues in the society, with a common swahili asserting that “Mama ndio ajuaye baba mtoto” (it’s only a mother who knows the real father of her child).
Below are some of the reactions shared by Kenyans on social media.
