Friday August 2, 2019 - The burial of Kibra MP, Ken Okoth, took another twist on Thursday following court orders barring the immediate family from interring his remains.
At a memorial service in Moi Girls Kibra, Governor Mike Sonko opened the Pandora’s Box when he confessed to thousands of mourners that Mr Okoth had another secret lover, Ms Anita Muthoni.
The family recognizes Monica Okoth, the lady who Ken met and married in Austria while in university.
She had received praises for standing in solidarity with the MP while he was battling cancer.
South Mugirango MP, Sylvanus Osoro, becomes another high profile leader to confirm the relationship between Okoth and Muthoni, a nominated MCA in Nairobi County.
In a post on social media, Mr Osoro, a first term youthful MP, said he was aware of the relationship between the two, adding that they had been blessed with a son and Okoth confirmed the same to him.
"Hon Ken Okoth was my friend, Hon. Ann Nthumbi, MCA is my very close friend, I know the truth and so does Hon. Sakaja. We agree with H.E Gov. Sonko. Ann and Ken had a child together," wrote Osoro.
Governor Sonko had claimed that Okoth first knew Ms Muthoni when she worked with Sonko Rescue Team as a nurse.
It's Ken who asked Sonko to nominate her to assembly.
“The two love birds did not hide the fact that they shared a son. Unfortunately, today, Anita was stopped at the Lee Funeral Home as she took their son to pay their last respect to his father. Who does that?” he posed.
