Nairobi Governor Mike Mbuvi Sonko on Thursday shocked mourners at the late Kibra MP Ken Okoth’s Funeral Service.
Sonko who put an end to media speculations over Okoth’s child with a Mpango Wa Kando gave details of how Okoth met with the lady known as Ann Thumbi.
Thumbi who is currently a nominated MCA in the Nairobi County Assembly allegedly met Okoth when Sonko’s Sonko rescue Team was conducting a medical camp in Kibra Constituency in 2013.
“There were beautiful nurses of Sonko rescue team, and because Ken was my friend… Ken fell in love with a nurse in the Sonko rescue Team called Anita and they used to go out,” stated Sonko.
While stating that Thumbi did not want anything from Okoth’s family or the parliament Sonko stated that Ken has left behind a child called Okoth to the applause of the audience.
“In the 2017 politics, Ken told me to nominated his wife Ann Thumbi to the county Assembly, so where Ken is… he is not at peace because his child is suffering even before he is laid to rest,” stated Sonko.
Sonko even went ahead and stated that he had convinced Thumbi not to move to court but settle the issue outside court.
Thumbi however obtained a court order that stopped Okoth’s cremation.
Thumbi made the application citing that she had been sidelined in the funeral plans and that the family’s decision to cremate the body would amount to erasing all evidence that her son was related to Okoth.
