Ken Okoth cremated after wife, lover solve impasse on burial – Nairobi News

Kibra MP Ken Okoth was on Saturday morning cremated at the Kariokor Crematorium in the presence of his family.

On Friday, a Nairobi court adopted a consent signed by Monica Okoth, the wife of late Kibra MP, and Anne Thumbi, his lover, that unlocked the stalemate over the interment of the legislator.

In the consent, Ms Okoth and Ms Thumbi agreed that a DNA test be undertaken to confirm the paternity of the latter’s son.

Mr Okoth’s wife, Monica, and his younger brother, were pushing for the cremation of the fallen MP’s body, while his mother Anjeline Ajwang’ and his elder brother wanted the body buried at her home in Kasewe, Kabondo Kasipul.

Mr Okoth’s family lawyer Edwin Sifuna has confirmed that the cremation started at 9am.

Only Mr Okoth’s family was involved.

“Anne’s lawyer said they will not attend and it is only the immediate family. The event has been finished and I have already left the place,” said Mr Sifuna
