The nominated MCA who bore a child with former Kibra MP Ken Okoth has moved to court to block Parliament from releasing any funds to the widow Monica Lavender.
MCA Anne Muthoni Thumbi wants the court to issue an order compelling Parliament to release some Sh148,000 which she says is her son’s school fees.
Ms Thumbi has accused Monica Lavender of failing to disclose to her Okoth’s key assets or give her an indication of value of the funds held in his bank accounts.
According to the court papers despite Ms Thumbi’s lawyers reaching out to the widow she had not informed them about the status of the estate.
“The Executor (Monica) has failed to neither disclose in her affidavit a key asset nor indicate the value of funds held in the bank, shares held in the Parliament Sacco nor the value of the pension,” she said in an affidavit.
The matter came up in court on March 1 but the case could not proceed. Ken Okoth died after a long battle with cancer in July 2019.
DNA tests revealed that the child was sired by Mr Okoth and Ms Thumbi before she was allowed to attend his cremation at Nairobi’s Kariokor area, although she failed to turn up for the ceremony.
