During his funeral service in Kibera last month, Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko caused chaos when he announced to mourners that Okoth has fathered a son with the nominated MCA.
He then claimed that Mr Okoth’s wife, Monica together with his extended family were locking out Ms Thumbi and her five-year-old son.
Ms Thumbi then went ahead to file a suit to bar the family from cremating the remains of the lawmaker until the case is heard.
Through her lawyer Elkana Mogaka Thumbi, Thumbi in her petition stated: “The mother and wife have deliberately and unfortunately excluded me from the funeral and burial arrangements of Okoth.”
