Ikolomani Mp Bernard Shinali and his family members survived a horrible road crash a day after burying his son.
His landcruiser collided with a matatu at the Mau Summit.
The body of his late son arrived in Nairobi recently and the burial conducted at his home in Lihrembe village on August 16. A harambee was held on August 13 at the MPs house to cater for burial costs.
Chris Masaka Adema, 35, a US Marine, died in Arizona State on July 26 while on holiday with his family. There are reports that he drowned while trying to save a child in a swimming pool.
The MP said prior to his son’s death, he had been given an assignment in the Democratic Republic of Congo. By the time of his demise he was on holiday for a week.
On 8th August, Shinali has denied blocking the mother of his son who died in US from participating in funeral arrangements.
Shinali said claims by Petronilla Munyasa that she has been stopped from travelling to the US are misleading. He accused Manyasa of seeking attention.
“I have not seen her for the last 35 years. The child was brought to my home when he was in class eight and her family demanded for payment for keeping him which I paid in cash and started educating the boy,” he said.
