NAIROBI, Kenya, May 8-The High Court has now ordered for DNA samples to be extracted from the body of the late Makueni Senator Mutula Kilonzo following an application by a woman who claims paternity for her seven-year-old son.
Justice Luka Kimaru has ordered that samples be taken to determine parenthood after Eunice Nthenya through the Federation of Women Lawyers (FIDA) filed the case at the Milimani Law courts.
Nthenya who identifies herself in the suit papers as the daughter of the late Kilonzo’s herdsman claims that the deceased is the father of her son who was born on May 5, 2006
She claims that she was in a relationship with the late lawyer between 2005 and 2008.
The High Court has now ordered that the DNA samples be extracted before the late Kilonzo is buried at his Mbooni home on Thursday.
The late senator was found dead at his Maanzoni home on April 27.
Pathologists are yet to release results of the late Kilonzo’s postmortem conducted last Tuesday.
Pathologists who conducted the postmortem at the Lee Funeral Home said that it will take them between eight to 10 weeks to make a conclusive finding.
Government Spokesman Muthui Kariuki told Capital FM News on Tuesday that President Uhuru Kenyatta who is expected back from a London trip is expected to attend the late Kilonzo’s funeral.
