DNA results have proved that the late 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 through lawyer Danstan Omari and Elkana Mogaka seeking to be included in the funeral and burial arrangements of the late MP.
Lawyer Omari speaking outside Milimani Court commercial building said three samples from three local and international labs were taken and tested.
KEMRI confirmed that the chances of Okoth being the father of Thumbi’s son were 99.99+ per cent.
Muthoni had argued that Okoth’s falimy had refused to let her and her son participate in the send off.
She asked the court to stop the cremation of the late MP so that the DNA test could be conducted.
However, through their lawyers Danstan Omari representing the MCA and Edwin Sifuna who represented Okoth’s mother, the parties reached an agreement and decided to take DNA samples from the deceased for testing and continue with the cremation.
The court also allowed her 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.
