    Former Kakamega Senator, Boni Khalwale, was also among the Jubilee leaders who escorted Mariga to IEBC.

    Ken Okoth's brother, Imran, won ODM's Kibra nomination and would be contesting against former ODM strategist Eliud Owalo fielded by Musalia Mudavadi's ANC, Khamisi Butichi (Ford Kenya) and Ukweli Party's Editar Ochieng among others.

    Thumbi, sired a son with the deceased and was at the centre of Okoth's family drama.

    She blocked the late MP's internment, insisting for a DNA to be conducted to ascertain that the son was sired by the deceased.

    The results from a DNA test carried out to determine whether the son of nominated MCA Anne Muthoni Thumbi was sired by the late Kibra MP Ken Okoth, were released on Thursday, September 5.

    According to Daily Nation, the results confirmed that there was a 99.99 per cent match, thereby confirming that the minor was fathered by the late MP.

    A sample of the late legislators DNA had been collected before he was cremated, amid dispute regarding the son's lineage.
