Unknown details about Ann Thumbi, the lady claiming to be Ken Okoth's lover

Ken Okoth had visited Ann's parents

MCA Anne Thumbi

Nominated MCA Anne Thumbi, who alleges she was the late Kibra MP Ken Okoth’s lover, is a trained nurse who once worked at the Aga Khan Hospital.

In an interview with Daily Nation, Ann stated that she met Ken at Aga Khan hospital and he asked her out.

She also played a major role in his 2013 campaigns for the Kibra parliamentary seat and friends say that you could tell their was more than a working relationship.

After Okoth clinched the seat he used his connections to have Ann nominated to the county assembly after the 2017 General Election. 

Baby boy

In 2015 the two were blessed with a baby boy who they named Jayden Baraka Okoth.

The Kibra MP then visited Ann's home in Tetu, Nyeri County and informed her parents that he was the father to their daughter's child.

According to friends close to Ken, he was a responsible father to his son Jayden and texts posted by governor Mike Sonko show him inquiring about his progress in school.

As a nominated MCA, Ann made headlines when she proposed a motion at the County Assembly to have private hospitals barred from charging visitors parking fees.

Sitting in committees

Under the Motion, she rebukes an influx in the number of private hospitals with parking lots for which patients and other visitors are charged.

She further urged the county to formulate policies to ensure all profits from the parking slots were paid to the county to ensure they were prudently used in maintaining the health facilities.

Ann sits in four committees — the Public Health Services; Energy Information, Communications and Technology; Culture and Community Services and the Delegated County Legislation committees.
