The family of Kibra MP Ken Okoth has allowed his alleged lover and Nairobi nominated MCA Anne Muthoni Thumbi to collect samples for DNA testing.

Ms Thumbi says that she and the departed legislator had a son together in 2015. They named him Jayden Baraka Okoth.

On Thursday, the ward representative was in court to stop the burial and cremation of Okoth until a time when the case will be determined.
