The body of former Kibra MP will be cremated at a private function in Nairobi.
Addressing the press on Wednesday, former Prime Minister Raila Odinga said the decision was reached after wide consultation with the family.
“After deliberations among the family members and the committee that was put together by ODM Party, it has been agreed as the body of Ken Okoth to be cremated in a private function restricted to family members and close friends,” said Raila.
Raila said on that August 3, 2019, the body will then be transported to Kasipul Kabondo, Homa Bay County where a funeral service will be done.
He added that on August 1, 2019 there will be a public viewing at Moi Girls’ High School, Nairobi
This comes few hours after Okoth’s paternal family said they were ready to bury him at Amoso village in Kochia ward, Homa Bay County next to his fathers grave.
