Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko on Thursday laid bare details of a love affair between the late Kibra MP Ken Okoth and Nairobi Member of County Assembly Anne Muthoni Thumbi, who moved to court to stop the deceased legislator’s funeral.

Speaking at the memorial service of the late MP at Moi Girl’s High School in Kibra, Sonko condemned the alleged exclusion of the nominated MCA and her three-year-old son from the funeral arrangements, saying that he (Sonko) too had two wives.

 

The Nairobi Governor strongly stated that the three-year-old child was the late Kibra MP’s son, hence, he should be embraced and allowed to be part of his father’s final send off.

“Ken had a son with one of the nominated Nairobi MCAs by the name Ann Thumbi alias Anita. The two love birds did not hide the fact that they shared a son. Ken recognised and was there for his son as demonstrated by pictures and various documented correspondences,” said Sonko.

“Unfortunately today, Anita was stopped at the Lee funeral home as she took their son to pay last respect to his father.Who does that?”

According to Sonko, the late Okoth and Ms. Muthoni met in 2013 during a medical camp hosted by the Sonko Rescue team in Kibra.

“In 2013 Ken Okoth invited Sonko Rescue team to hold a medical camp for his constituents in Kibra. There were beautiful nurses and he fell in love with one of our nurses called Anita. And they began going out together. I can attest to that,” said Sonko.

“I’m urging that Okoth’s son be recognised. Anita together with her son even visited Ken Okoth’s mother who is here before us. They had happy moments and Ken loved his son. So it is not right to sideline this child.”

Sonko went ahead to reveal that he pushed for the nomination of Ms. Muthoni to the Nairobi County Assembly at the request of Mr. Okoth in 2017.

“In 2017 Ken told me to nominate his second wife Ann Thumbi to the Nairobi County Assembly. And since I have much respect for Ken Okoth who is lying before us here today, I nominated Ann Thumbi,” said Sonko.

The governor also disclosed he had organised for Ms. Muthoni to visit Mr. Okoth in Paris, where he was undergoing cancer treatment.

“She(Muthoni) appealed to me to help them fly to Paris to visit the ailing Ken after ambassador Judy Wakhungu posted a picture of the late MP in a Paris hospital. On the 6th I obliged to her appeal and asked them to send me copies of their passports. I proceeded to pay two tickets for the the two to travel and also booked a hotel in Paris,” said Sonko.

“Fortunately, a few days later, as we waited for their Visa processing , MCA Doris, a colleague of Anita, sent me a text saying Hon. Okoth had returned to Kenya but appeared very weak. Thus the Paris trip aborted.”

Sonko urged the MP’s family to allow the three-year-old be part of his father’s send off as a show of respect.

“My humble appeal is that even as we prepare to bury Ken, let’s not forget his son. He too needs and has a right to participate in the send off of his beloved dad… The family should accept
Hon. Okoth’s son enjoys legal protection and recognition,” said Sonko.

Meanwhile, a Nairobi court has barred the late MP’s family members from cremating or burying him pending hearing and determination of a case filed by Ms. Muthoni on behalf of the minor.

In the case, Ms. Muthoni has sued the late legislator’s mother Angeline Okoth, his Caucasian wife Monica Okoth and the Lee Funeral Home.

She insists that the three-year-old boy is a biological son of the late legislator, further claiming that the family has unilaterally decided to have Okoth’s body cremated so as to destroy any evidence of the minor’s lineage to the deceased.

The case was set for hearing on August 9, 2019.

Three IB programs are offered by Aga Khan Academy schools in Nairobi and Mombasa, while Braeburn Garden Estate School, which is part of the home-grown Braeburn education group, offers the IB Diploma alongside A-levels.

The Braeburn group runs seven schools in Kenya of which four are based in and around Nairobi, with the others are in Mombasa, Kisumu and Nanyuki. The schools follow the English national curriculum leading to A-levels and IGCSEs and two of them offer weekly boarding.

Other international schools in Kenya include: Kenton College Preparatory School, GEMS Cambridge International School, German School Nairobi, Greensted International Schools, St Andrew’s Senior School among others.

In late 2017, St Andrews Turi become the talk of social media after its fees structure and menu were leaked to the public.

Police in Tana River county in Kenya are looking for a shamba boy  (gardener) who fled after allegedly  impregnating all three of his employer’s underage daughters at around the same period.

The girls said the man would often lure them to their farm where he would sexually defile them. One of the sisters confessed to sneaking into the gardener’s room at night.

“I did not know he was having affair with my sisters as well because we didn’t share that part of our lives with each other, as we didn’t trust each other with secrets,” one of the teenagers told Daily Nation.

The further divulged that the man would entice them with gifts such as money and clothes.

“He used to give me pocket money and would sometimes buy me clothes. He was so nice to me. I did not know he was doing the same to my sisters,” another girl said.

Each of the three sisters gave birth to a set of twins at a Garissa hospital on Saturday through a Cesarean Section.

All the three are Class Eight learners and are expected to sit for their Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) examination in March next year.

On her part, the girls’ mother said she noticed her daughters had new sets of underpants but she did not suspect something was going on between them and the gardener.

“I noticed some funny set of underwear which caught my attention. But my last-born daughter kept saying she had bought them with her pocket money,” the mother explained.

“What I did not understand was why she chose that funny type of underwear,” she said.

She learned of the gardener’s affair with her daughters after she stumbled upon a message on one of the girls’ phone informing the man of the pregnancy.

She then discovered the two were planning to get rid of the pregnancy, prompting her to ambush all her daughters with a pregnancy test the following morning. Two of the girls admitted they were pregnant before the tests.

The shamba boy is said to have fled after learning that the three sisters were all pregnant with his children. Police are still looking for him.

The first-born daughter was expecting triplets but she could only deliver two children safely and without complications.

“They all had slim chances of survival, and that is why we looked for a specialist. But for the girl with the triplets to come out alive, we had to agree with the mother to choose between her daughter and the third infant,” a doctor said.
