Madam Pyne, speaking on local radio station Ok FM, said that she gave birth to Kessie and another son by an Ivorian man while living in Sinoe County, but did not disclose the year he was born. According to Madam Pyne, her boys were taken to Ivory Coast by their father to attend school, and since then, she has not seen her children.
“I learned that Kessie and his brother were sent to Europe after several attempts to find my children,” Madam Pyne explained. Kessie’s father, who was once a professional footballer and also served in the Ivorian Army, is now deceased.
The Ivorian midfielder’s professional profile only provides information about his father but nothing is mentioned about his mother. Madam Pyne said she has had sleepless nights over the years hoping to one day find her two children.
The Liberian lady, who is believed to be in her 60s, said she met Kessie’s father in Liberia when he was working there. She further stated that she has tried to get in contact with her alleged son but has yet to succeed.
Nancy said she wants to see her son and reunite with him, not because of money. She visited Ivory Coast to get in touch with her sons, but it did not materialize as his family gave her a fake number that did not ring.
Kessie’s professional profile states that his father died due to an illness when Kessie was 11 years old. According to research, a mother can do DNA testing for her child. Although the mother’s participation can strengthen results, her DNA is not usually needed to obtain conclusive results. But if she can provide her DNA and is willing to do so, that could be a great step for her to get in touch with her son.
Including the biological mother’s DNA is not just for straight DNA testing. She should be included in any DNA test, even grandparent DNA tests or sibling DNA testing, in order to strengthen the DNA test results.
