Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko has on Thursday sent his appeal to protect the son of the late Kibra Mp Ken Okoth as he spilled the beans of his secret love affair.
In a long statement on social media, Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko opened about his secret love life with nominated Nairobi County Assembly MCA by the name Anita Thumbi.
Sonko continues by saying that late Ken Okoth and Anita did not hide the fact that they both had a son but unfortunately Anita was stopped from viewing the body of the late Kibra MP at Lee funeral.
“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 ?!” Said Governor Sonko.
The late Ken Okoth who was married to Monicah Okoth was receiving treatment abroad and his health deteriorated sending Anita into a panic.
She then turned to the Nairobi Governor who was to pay her transport abroad and had also booked a hotel in France.
Unfortunately, before she could jet out, the Kibra MP had returned into the country canceling all plans she had already made.
Governor Sonko finally says that the Kibra MP will not forgive him if he does not save the situation by saying Anita was a nurse at Sonko Rescue team.
In 2017, the Late Ken Okoth is said to have talked to the Nairobi Governor to nominate Anita to the County Assembly and out of respect, the Governor nominated her.
“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.” Said Sonko
