, NAIROBI, Kenya, Jan 9 – A court order blocking the burial of former Nominated MP Mark Too has been lifted, paving way for the funeral slated for Monday to proceed as planned.
Family lawyer Prof Tom Ojienda told Capital FM News that he managed to expunge the order which was obtained by lawyer Simon Lilan on Friday.
Lilan had wanted to have a second post-mortem carried on the deceased to establish the cause of death claiming it was suspicious.
“I have just obtained orders from Resident Magistrate Nicodemus Moseti that the burial will proceed as planned,” Ojienda said Monday.
The court order by Moseti reads: “That-the order issued on 6th January 2017 stopping the burial of Hon Mark Kiptarbei Too be and are hereby vacated. That the matter be mentioned on 12th January 2017before Hon Barasa for further directions.”
Too will be buried at his Maziwa Farm in Kapseret, Uasin Gishu County.
The veteran politician collapsed at his home and died at St Luke’s Hospital in Eldoret on December 31, 2016.
