Fallen Kibra Member of Parliament (MP) Ken Okoth’s family on Wednesday, September 17, appeared before the court to make formal submissions on the September 5 DNA test outcome.
Kenyanbulletin.com has learnt thatl Monica Okoth, the widow of the late Ken, rejected the DNA results that confirmed Okoth sired Nairobi nominated MCA Anne Thumbi’s 4-year-old son.
The unsatisfied Monica argued that she had commissioned independent DNA tests on Okoth and Thumbi’s son, and is yet to receive the outcome.
She therefore asked the court to allow her 20 days to get the results, which the commercial court magistrate M. Obura objected, instead of granting her 15 days to confirm whether the tests commissioned by her would give different results.
Okoth’s mother, Angeline Ajwang, however, accepted the DNA test results, further asking the court to terminate Thumbi’s case seeking to establish the paternity of her son.
This comes after a DNA test was carried out to determine whether the nominated MCA’s son was sired Okoth.
The result was released on Thursday, September 5 confirming that there was a 99.99 per cent chance that Okoth, who died on July 26, was the biological father of Thumbi’s child.
