Wednesday August 14, 2019 - A new feud has ensued among members of the family of the late Kibra MP, Ken Okoth.
They are divided on how to enlist kin who will acquire his benefits from Parliament.
According to reports, Parliament is not yet sure of who is entitled to the deceased’s Ksh32 million payment.
The amount includes his group life insurance cover and death gratuity.
“They will have to wait for some time since Parliament must first get a letter from the courts indicating the administrator of the late MP’s estate.”
“Yes, the family is entitled to Ksh32 million before tax, but we are not releasing the money now.”
“We have to follow the law, which requires that we have to first get the letter of the administrator of the estate.”
“If the family agrees on how to share the money, the name of the administrator must be published in the Kenya Gazette, so that anybody with an issue can come up,” a source that sought anonymity revealed.
Ken Okoth’s brother, Imran Okoth, revealed that the matter was private and the family lawyer was best placed to handle it.
“I don’t know why they are telling you the amount and all that.”
“Why would they do that yet these are personal matters?” Imran blasted.
