NAIROBI, Kenya, Jan 9 – The woman who had moved to court seeking to stop the burial of former Nominated MP Mark Too in a paternity dispute will not attend his burial together with her son after she collapsed Monday morning at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport.
Fatuma Ramadhan Hassan was rushed to the Guru Nanak hospital where her Lawyer Danstan Omari said she had regained consciousness and was in a stable condition.
“We were supposed to fly to Eldoret for the final send-off. We did arrive with my client at the airport; as we were waiting for the flight, she fainted and the doctors had to be summoned,” the lawyer told Capital FM News at the hospital.
“We shall not be going for the funeral because it is proper to be with the patient until the doctors clear her.”
Fatuma, who was in the company of her son at the hospital, withdrew her case on Friday after talks with the family.
“She has stabilised though she has a record of diabetes and blood pressure but the doctors are in control and we hope everything will be fine,” he said.
Too’s body was flown to his Kapseret home in the outskirts of Eldoret Sunday ahead of the burial.
He died on December 31, after a short illness at St Luke’s hospital in Eldoret.
Too served as an Assistant Minister in retired President Daniel arap Moi’s government.
