BY PRUDENCE WANZA – A Nairobi Court has issued temporary injunction restraining the wives of former Kibra Member of Parliament Ken Okoth from cremating or disposing his body pending hearing and determination of the application.
Senior Principal Magistrate G. Mmasi issued orders restraining Angelina Okoth and Monica Okoth from disposing the body of the late MP.
This is after Ann Muthoni Thumbi sued on behalf of Okoth’s son claiming they have deliberately and unfortunately opted to exclude her from the funeral and burial arrangements of the deceased after learning the arrangement from the media.
She argued that the two to have unilaterally decided to have the body cremated among other reasons to primarily destroy any evidence .
“The minor is scheduled to report back to school on September 1st yet no communication has been made to the plaintiff regarding the payment of the minor’s school fees,” said Muthoni.
She said that the conduct of the two wives is not to the interest of the minor as he is at risk of suffering untold psychological torture as a result of being discriminated and prevented from participating in his late father’s burial arrangements.
