The mother of Kibra MP Ken Okoth and his widow have consented to have Anne Thumbi, the nominated Nairobi MCA who had a son with the late MP, to be included in burial arrangements.
The MP’s mother Angeline Ajwan’g and widow Monica Okoth told a court on Friday that Anne will also be allowed to collect samples for DNA testing to ascertain the child’s paternity.
The two were represented in court by lawyer Edwin Sifuna, who is also the secretary general of ODM.
The court ordered that the DNA sample be obtained 2pm Friday.
Thereafter, cremation of the Mr Okoth will proceed in accordance with his wishes.
Anne, a former Sonko Rescue Team employee, moved to court on Thursday to request for an injunction until Ajwan’g and Monica recognise her 3-year-old son as a child of the late MP.
She wants her son listed as one of the beneficiaries of Ken Okoth’s property.
