A woman who wanted late politician and wealthy businessman MP Mark Too’s burial halted so that her son could be be recognised has withdrawn her case.
Fatuma Hassan had filed a case in the High Court seeking to have her son’s inclusion in the burial arrangements alongside other demands.
She told the court that Too’s widows Sophie and Mary excluded her son by design, that she needed information on whether his school fees would be paid.
Hassan however made a U-turn on Friday, January 6, telling judge Aggrey Muchelule that the family had agreed to her son’s participation.
Too who was 64 at the time of his death, had been rushed to St Lukes Hospital in Eldoret on December 31 after he was found unconscious at his home. He died of heart complications.
Eldoret lawyer Simon Lilan who is also a relative to the former Nominated MP, however disagreed with the postmortem reports saying he may have been poisoned because of his vast wealth which includes 25,000 acres of land.
Lilan also sensationally claimed that there had been a plot to kill Mary but the family asked him to stop frustrating them.
A requiem mass for the departed is planned at AIC Milimani in Nairobi ahead of the burial on Monday, January 9.
