Kibra MP Imran Okoth’s mother passes on

By Mireri Junior | January 16th 2021

Kibra MP Imran Okoth's mother Angeline Ajwang' is dead.

Mama Ajwang’ (pictured) died on Saturday morning.

Imran took to his social media to make the announcement on Saturday morning.

While regretting her demise, the ODM MP described his mother as a strong and happy woman who gave the family joy.

 "In life, we loved you dearly, in death we still love you. In our hearts you hold a place, I cried endlessly when you died but I promise, I won't let the tears mar the smiles that you've given me when you were alive.

"I know you are listening from above. Fare thee well mum," Imran said.

Mama Ajwang’s death comes 18 months after she lost her elder son and former Kibra MP Ken Okoth.

Okoth succumbed to cancer on July 26, 2019, while receiving treatment at the Nairobi Hospital.

Mama Ajwang’ is remembered for her opposition against the cremation of her son who succumbed to cancer.

Mama Ajwang’s wish was that her son is buried at their rural home in Homa Bay contrary to the MP’s wish of cremation.

The cremation divided the maternal family members as the mother and a section of the family members wanted his body buried in Homa Bay, but the late MP’s wife insisted that it was Okoth’s wish to be cremated.
