DNA results have proved that the later Kibra MP Ken Okoth is the father of MCA Ann Muthoni Thumbi’s son.
The three year old minor was subjected to the test after his mother moved to court seeking to be included in the funeral and burial of the late MP since she was the mother of his child.
Muthoni had argued that Okoth’s falimy had refused to let her and her son participate in the send off on grounds that her child was not sired by the MP
She asked the court to stop the burial/cremation of the MP so that the DNA test could be conducted.
However, through their lawyers Dunstan Omari representing the MCA and Edwin Sifuna Okoth’s mother, the parties reached an agreement and decided to take DNA samples from the deceased for testing and continue with the send off as arranged.
The court also allowed Muthoni and her son to be part of the funeral arrangements.
Okoth died in July after a two year battle with cancer while serving his second term as Kibra MP.
