Ken Okoth's wife, Monica to file own DNA results for Anne Thumbi's son

Disputed DNA for Okoth's son by his wife Monicah

Anne Thumbi and Monicah Okoth

The widow of the late Kibra MP Ken Okoth, Monica Okoth has disputed DNA results presented by Ann Thumbi's lawyers.

Monicah is said to have filed an application seeking to file her own DNA results in 14 days.

This comes barely two weeks after lawyer Danstan Omari representing Ms Thumbi filed a DNA result which returned a verdict of 99.99 per cent.

The court had ordered a DNA test be conducted after the child, and his mother was excluded from being part of the process of the lawmaker’s burial.

Refused to acknowledge child

The late lawmaker’s family had refused to acknowledge the child as part of the family without the DNA test.

The late MP Okoth is the biological father of the minor, who was the subject of the dispute," lawyer Omari said.

"We have presented the local DNA result as a sign of confidence of the Kenyan medical facilities,” he added.

He stated that they are also going to give the same results to the other family members of the late lawmaker who were doubting the child's paternity.
