The mystery of whether Ken Okoth and Ann Thumbi had a son has finally been solved. The DNA analysis has revealed that the boy is the late Ken Okoth’s son.

“The mother and wife have deliberately and unfortunately excluded me from the funeral and burial arrangements of Okoth” the petition read.

She said that she learnt of the arrangements from the media. According to Muthoni, the family has unilaterally decided to have the body cremated among other reasons to primarily destroy any evidence of her son’s lineage to Okoth.

Earlier today, The Star had established that the woman, a Jubilee-nominated MCA, approached Okoth’s family and demanded that her son be acknowledge before his ‘father’ is interred.

The bombshell about Okoth’s alleged lovechild became hot news when Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko Mbuvi spoke at Ken Okoth’s memorial service at Moi Girls telling those present that his son should be recognised.

He was my best friend for a while, he was someone who encouraged me to tell me what work I can do he has always been pushing me

I met Anwar in Mombasa. I had gone on holiday and he was there for a security meeting. We started talking often. He was more of a best friend and encouraged me to take up projects.

My love has been there for me through my ups and downs. I appreciate him very much. He even tells me to leave trolls alone, and to put aside my phone.

Saumu gushed over her boyfriend saying he plays an important role in her daughters life.

my lover right now he is a very amazing father to my daughter

saumu-mbuvi-21

As a single mum bringing up a child without a man actively in her life, she needs a father figure for her child

I would advice if you have left your man find a father figure, coz there is something a father will teach a child that is different, this generation there is something the kids are missing because there we are so confident being single mothers

Kenyans titillated with clip of Mike Sonko dancing in new music video

Mike Sonko is one politician who speaks his mind and dances to his own beat, regardless of what detractors might think. The man has been in the news this week after releasing an embarrassing audio clip featuring former Makadara MP Reuben Ndolo.

And he isn’t done yet. The popular governor has decided to feature in an up and coming musician’s music video. The music video is written by Lucky boy and it praises Sonko’s achievements.

Mike Sonko

The song, dubbed The Score Card Nairobi County 047, starts with the governor waving from City Hall and later dancing at his office.

In the video, achievements that the Nairobi County boss has accomplished highlighted, for example; the construction of the Matopeni Road, Kangundo Fire Station, Dandora Vocational Training among others.

Sonko told his followers that he would be having a low key party to celebrate his accomplishments.

“Instead of spending millions of taxpayers money doing big parties and publicity, I have decided to celebrate my two years achievements in office in style,” he divulged.

Governor Sonko added that he would be celebrating his performance at a private club with his Cabinet and chief officers.

Many of his followers were impressed with the video and remarked about it. Some of the comments are below;

rachel.annie.33 God bless,you have done a lot though haters don’t see that,for the remaining yrs may God give u good health,wisdom and strength to complete your work well
ayman_sheik_nico How I wish my governor was hardworking and. Cool like you…..😂😂😂

dama677 Iko juu sana…governor have been looking for a job…am joblesd

Flamboyant and exciting politicians like Sonko are rare but they often fo well with the electorate because they are easily relatable. American president Donald Trump is an example.

Trump has famously been done things on T.V that could be seen as unpresidential but that didn’t stop the American people from voting for him.

Kabogo explains how politicians are able to nominate their girlfriends

William Kabogo is one politician who knows how the system works. The former Kiambu governor has been in the game for a long time and has a very interesting take on the way politicians manipulate the voting system.

‘You need to visit your grave you may meet her spirit’ Kabogo to troll

Speaking during the morning breakfast show at Citizen TV, Kabogo noted that some governors nominate their girlfriends, people they know or those that have helped them in one way or another.

William Kabogo
William Kabogo

He explained;

Year in year out, we try to streamline the issue of nomination of parties by making sure that these lists are sent before time. We have derived ways of circumventing those conditions that we put so that we can have fair nominations, if you ask me, I would scrap this nomination business. Nominations in Kenya, that is the story, I have been in this thing for the last 20 years, I know.

Kabogo and wife
Kabogo and wife. photo credit: file

He said that nominations were rarely based on merit. This discussion was probably elicited by Mike Sonko Mbuvi’s assertion that he nominated Anna Thumbi – who was the late Ken Okoth’s side-chick because Ken asked him to. He said

I remember, in the 2017 elections, Ken asked me as a friend to nominate his other wife as Nairobi MCA. I did so out of respect out for him. Ken is being buried while his son is suffering. I pray recognition on behalf of Ken Okoth’s wife.

Cronyism is the practice of partiality in awarding jobs and other advantages to friends or trusted colleagues, especially in politics and between politicians and supportive organizations. For instance, this includes appointing “cronies” to positions of authority, regardless of their qualifications.

I love pekejeng! Millie Odhiambo tells Sonko in ugly spat

Mike Sonko grabbed the headlines last week. Yes, that is the type of power (controversy) that the Nairobi governor has when he opens his mouth to speak.

What has he done now? He and Millie Odhiambo have been involved in a tiff this past week after Sonko’s revelation that Ken Okoth had a love-child.

Mike Sonko
Mike Sonko at the memorial service

The two have attacked each other viciously on social media and Millie has now responded again on her Facebook page. She dressed down the governor in her message that was written in a scholarly fashion and demeaning fashion.

Some of her memorable quotes in her story were;

My good friend and young brother Sonko, let me tell you something, I am a lawyer- an intellectual if you may, who is also happily a pig while in politics. I am NEVER intimidated by bullies like you who thrive on populism devoid of intellect that often sl*t-shames women. My response to you will be both intellectual and pigerly. You can hire a lawyer to translate for you the intellectual bit. The pigerly bit of course needs no translation coz it’s your expertise.

Mike Sonko

She then went on to tell the governor that she had been doing a lot in parliament to help children, especially in areas of succession, writing,

Currently we are pushing for an overhaul of the Children Act to ensure protection of all children including children whose parents are not married to each other in conformity with Article 53 of the Constitution.

Millie Odhiambo
Millie Odhiambo

Millie finished off by telling the governor that she had done more for kids than many even knew. She also threw in a controversial bit telling Sonko,

You said history never forgets so let me remind you that I have said before publicly that I love se3 and I have se3.What I also know- men who are overly obsessed with demeaning women se3ually, have either a coma or a fullstop where it matters. Real men have BOLDED EXCLAMATION MARKS in support of women.

What I do know is that this affair will not end anytime soon as the two politicians are very petty!

His very long message is below;

MY HUMBLE REQUEST TO HON. KEN OKOTH’S FAMILY.

We all want to mourn our late Bro Hon. Ken Okoth and respect his family especially the mother. Ken was a diligent leader who did everything to uplift the lives of Kibra constituents and Nairobi in general. However, even as we mourn, we are cognizant of the fact that Ken had a son with one of the nominated Nairobi County Assembly (MCA) members by the name Ann Thumbi alias Anita. 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 last respect to his father. Who does that ?!.
In spite of denials from some members of the family, it’s clear that Ken recognised and was there for his son as demonstrated by pictures and various documented correspondences. On 5th of July 2019, as the Governor of Nairobi, I received a text from one of Anita’s colleagues who said Anita was emotionally down and worried about the health of her son’s father, Hon. Ken Okoth.The MP out of paternal love of his son had reportedly called her to ask her to take care of their son. She then appealed to me to help them fly to Paris to visit the ailing Ken after ambassador Judy Wakhungu posted a picture of the late MP in a Paris hospital. On the 6th I obliged to her appeal and asked them to send me copies of their passports. I proceeded to pay two tickets for the two to travel and also booked a hotel in Paris. Fortunately, a few days later, as we waited for their Visa processing, MCA Doris, a colleague of Anita, sent me a text saying Hon. Okoth had returned to Kenya but appeared very weak. Thus the Paris trip was aborted. 
My humble appeal is that even as we prepare to bury Ken, let’s not forget his son. He too needs and has a RIGHT to participate in the send-off of his beloved dad. As such, it’s our duty to protect the right of the child. As a leader, I offer my support to the family of the late Ken as they undergo a difficult moment of mourning a husband, a father, a son, a brother. The family should accept

The debate on why Kenyan men never reveal the kids they have had outside their marriage is trending in Kenya and for the wrong reasons.

This is after Governor Sonko revealed to the entire world that it’s indeed true that Ken Okoth had sired a son outside marriage.

Kenyans contributed on the topic and here is what one man had to say

I have a kid out of wedlock and my wife does not know.

Telling her would be a problem.

You just find yourself in this situations,the son is 7years.

I can never tell my wife,even if the other woman decides to pop up after I die well and good.

I won’t  be there to witness the drama.

A Kenyan woman goes in to confess that she is a victim of a man who is a womanizer.

I met him after high school and we got babies,my kids are 16-19.

We however did not get married.

woman crying.

He went ahead and got kids with 5 other women and the family knows.

If he was to die today atleast I will be recognized as the first wife.

She adds

I know all the kids and he takes care of them.

Even now I know the woman he is living with,out of all the six women I am the only one who has given him a girl.

That is why he can’t bear to leave me.

Another adds

I was dating this man and only found out he was married while I was pregnant.

The shocking thing is despite that he made me feel like I was the only woman I’m his life.

Shock on me,I came to find out he had 9 other kids.

when I was called and told he had died I just decided to keep off next I knew there would be drama.

In conclusion she advises

As a woman it’s up to you to decide how to react once you find out you are not the only one one.

The death of Ken Okoth has come with its share of drama and complications.

The revered and much admired MP has had his image tarnished after it emerged this week that he might have had a love-child with nominated Jubilee MCA, Anita Thumbi.

Anita has even gone to court seeking orders to stop his burial or cremation on grounds she has been excluded.

Anita Thumbi

The court on Thursday issued orders stopping the cremation until the case filed by Ann Muthoni in court is heard and determined.

Ann Thumbi sued on behalf of her son, whom she says is Okoth’s. Through lawyer Elkana Mogaka Thumbi, Muthoni sued Okoth’s mum Angeline Okoth and wife Monica Okoth along with Lee funeral home.

“The mother and wife have deliberately and unfortunately excluded me from the funeral and burial arrangements of Okoth,” the petition reads.

Muthoni said she only learnt of the arrangements from the media. According to Muthoni, the family has unilaterally decided to have the body cremated “among other reasons to primarily destroy any evidence of her son’s lineage to Okoth”.

The order stopping the burial and cremation was issued by Senior Principal Magistrate GA Mmasi. The case will be heard on August 9.

Even Nairobi governor Mike Sonko Mbuvi has come out as a witness attesting to the fact that Anita and Ken had a child together. At the memorial yesterday the governor said that he had been a witness to Ken and Anita’s relationship. Who is Anita?

She is a Nairobi County Assembly (MCA) and goes by the name Ann Thumbi alias Anita. Her photos are below;

Sonko promises to sponsor some Kenyans to visit cancer fighter, MP Ken Okoth

Cancer robbed us this week of a great warrior. That person was the late Safaricom CEO, Bob Collymore. Bob succumbed to Acute Myeloid Leukaemia on Monday after battling the disease for two years.

While it may seem that cancer claims every person that it attacks, there are some people who have fought the disease and won. And there are those Kenyans who are still fighting right now.

One of those is Kibra MP Ken Okoth battling Colorectal Cancer with every fiber in his body. He has been in France the last couple of months for treatment. He recently decided to pay a visit to Kenya’s ambassador to France, Judy Wakhungu.

While visiting Wakhungu, they discussed various issues ranging from education projects and sports diplomacy among other issues affecting his constituents. She wrote on her Twitter page;

Courtesy call from from Ken Okoth (Kibra). He updated us on many issues including his impressive education projects and his plans for increasing them to reach as many students as possible. He is also keen to use Sports Diplomacy to expand students’ horizons.

Many Kenyans were thrilled to see the MP in good spirits including Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko who weighed in urging the MP to soldier on. Sonko also promised to sponsor a team of religious leaders, and his constituents to pay him a visit in France, writing;

Cancer is really hitting us hard. The most important thing in illness is never to lose heart…on behalf of the great people of Nairobi our prayers are with you Ken Okoth. I shall be willing to sponsor and lead a delegation of pastors, Imams and a few Kibra constituents to visit him in France and pray for our beloved MP.

I love drama! Maina Kageni responds to Sonko’s interview on Citizen

The recent public exchanges between Sonko and Passaris have gripped the country and also served as an embarrassment according to KOT.

It got worse as Sonko was the guest on Citizen TV Wednesday June 5h, where he exposed private conversations with Passaris, leading to the TV station abruptly ending the interview.

In Thursday’s morning conversation on Classic 105, Maina Kageni’s topic was about Sonko’s behavior.

Maina sought to know from Classic 105 listeners how one deals with a person who cannot keep a secret.

Tokeo la picha la jk live sonko

What do you think about what you saw yesterday with Sonko at the JK live interview?

What could you have done if you were Sonko’s wife?

These are some of the questions that Maina asked. He was however somehow convinced that Sonko was not wrong about what he was doing. He also said that he is hopeful that Sonko will one day ‘anika’ corruption scandals.

Maina dug in with his opinion saying

‘The only thing with Sonko is that you just never know what is coming he might say something that might get you sued. There is something about Sonko that I like. I can’t put my finger on it I just get the sense that cartels fear him.’ 

‘I will sue KAA’ Sonko shouts after having his private parts electrocuted

‘I love drama’ Maina shouted.

The comments from Sonko also elicited mixed reaction.

One of the female callers said, ‘I was so ashamed about that interview because i was even watching it with my husband and son. I wonder what he will advising his children if thus what he does in public. I love my governor but with that he went overboard.

Murang’a MCAs dare Sonko to demolish governor Wa Iria’s house

On the other hand those who were of opinion that what Sonko had done was right said;

What Sonko did was right because he always says what is there and there is no way he could been believed without carrying evidence with him. 

This social media always preach wine and take water. They were not ready to receive the truth as it was and that is why they were stopping him. 

I like our governor because he always says the truth as it is with valid evidence along with him.

Nairobi MCA’s demand apology from Tobiko for Sonko

Nairobi MCAs have demanded for an immediate apology from Environment CS Keriako Tobiko for disrespecting Governor Mike Sonko.

On Saturday, during the national tree planting day event at the Moi Forces Academy in Kamukunji, Tobiko tried to prevent Sonko from making an address by openly not giving him an opportunity.

President Uhuru Kenyatta, his deputy William Ruto and other leaders were present during the event.

The protocol hitch led Sonko to angrily grab the microphone and start to speak, just as the Deputy President stood to make his address. Ruto was forced to sit down and let Sonko speak.

The outspoken governor said he read mischief in Tobiko’s conduct and told him off in front of the President and his deputy that respect is two-way traffic.Read here for more

“The State programme is very clear, I am supposed to speak after the national anthem, then invite the minister who is to invite the DP

The President has not disbanded Nairobi County government. You must stop this habit of disrespecting the county government,” a visibly angry Sonko said.

Sonko has previously accused the Executive of trying to run the show at City Hall.

Now Nairobi MCAs are demanding for an apology from Tobiko.

Led by Waithaka Ward MCA Anthony Karanja, who is also the chairperson of planning committee at the county assembly, the MCAs said it is now apparent that there is a section of the executive that is out to frustrate Sonko.

They want to make sure Sonko fails to deliver on his mandate by sabotaging him, Karanja said.

“Today at Moi Forces Academy, it was very clear that Tobiko did not recognize the presence of Governor Sonko. Actually, this is not the first time that Sonko is being subjected to this kind of humiliation, we have just been silent about it,” said Karanja.

He said they are soon going to let Nairobians know the behind the scenes schemes that are meant to frustrate Sonko and paint him as a non-performer.

“Nairobi County is not able to perform well because of the frustrations by the section of the Executive, but we are now not going to allow them,” he said.

He said for the first time, Nairobi County government and the National government were being led by leaders from the Jubilee Party and they should therefore use the golden opportunity and work together for the benefit of the millions of Nairobians.

“It is very unfortunate that something like that happened in a function attended by the Head of State and his deputy. We hope that President Uhuru is going to intervene and ensure that Sonko is allowed space to deliver on his promise to his people,” he added.

Mlango-Kubwa MCA, who is also the chairlady of Ward Development Fund, Patricia Mutheu said disrespecting the governor is disrespecting the 45 elected MCAs.

“Disrespecting Sonko means disrespecting the MCAs, which means disrespecting the will of those who woke up early on August 8 to go and vote for them. We demand respect and we demand an apology,” she said.

She said even if some leaders in the Executive do not respect Sonko, they should at least respect the office of the governor as an institution and the 800,000 people that voted for him.

They spoke during a press conference at City Hall on Saturday evening.
