The Luo council of elders has reiterated that Monica Okoth the late Kibera Member of parliament widow Ken Okoth must be inherited according to Luo culture and rituals.
The council says Monica should visit Okoth’s native home in Kasewe, Homabay County for cleansing rituals.
When she arrives, she will undergo HIV testing and other sexually transmitted diseases before sexually intercourse with the cleanser well known us ‘Jater’ in Luo language.
The ‘cleanser’ is not related to the late Ken Okoth.
After a successfully sexual intercouse, Monica will be inherited by Okoth’s elder brother.
However the European lady who together with Okoth adopted three children is yet to utter a word over the issue while Kenyans strongly condemn such move.
They compared the olden days to modern days saying it was purely uncalled for.
The Kenya Correspondent Association leader William Oloo Janak said such issues should not even be highlighted in the media as they mislead the community.
“Such olden cultural practices do not fit today’s life,” noted Mr. Janak.
The death of Okoth has led to a lot of unfoldings, drama and confusion including Okoth secret lover Anne Muthoni who went to court blocking the cremation of Okoth until her son is recognised.
Okoth’s mother Angelina Ajwang is also painfully mourning asking who gave the consent for his son to be cremated despite family preparing a grave for her son’s descent send off.
The death has also led to Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko taking on Legislature Milly Odhiambo over Okoth son.
It is a total confusion between Okoth will and family demands. However the Luo community is trending!
