Former Kibra MP Ken Okoth’s ‘second wife’ Anita Thumbi has sued to stop his burial or cremation on grounds she has been excluded.
A Nairobi court on Thursday issued orders stopping the cremation until the case filed by Ann Muthoni in court is heard.
The court also stopped burial until the case is heard and determined.
Ann Thumbi sued on behalf of her son, whom she says is Okoth’s.
Through lawyer Elkana Mogaka Thumbi, Muthoni sued Okoth’s mum Angeline Okoth and wife Monica Okoth along with Lee funeral home.
‘Legalize Bhang!’ says Governor Sonko
“The mother and wife have deliberately and unfortunately excluded me from the funeral and burial arrangements of Okoth,” the petition reads.
Muthoni said she only learnt of the arrangements from the media.
According to Muthoni, the family has unilaterally decided to have the body cremated “among other reasons to primarily destroy any evidence of her son’s lineage to Okoth”.
The order stopping the burial and cremation was issued by Senior Principal Magistrate GA Mmasi.
The case will be heard on August 9.
