Okiya Omtatah’s Daughter Laid To Rest



The daughter of activist Okiya Omtatah, Maryanne Omtata who died last week was buried in her home in the village of Kwang’amor in the small town of Teso in southern Busia County, during the weekend.

The funeral Mass for 22-year-old Maryenna who died of Malaria was led by Father Paroko of the Amukura Catholic church Danstan Epalat who counseled young people in the country to imitate the example of the late self-styled gentle and godly.

Omtatah described her anguish at the loss of her daughter while announcing that she would use the two million shillings donated by Kenyans as a pledge to start a campaign to help young people develop talent.

The funeral was also attended by the wife of Busia County governor Mrs. Judy Ojaamong and Bungoma Senator who gave Ford Kenya party leader Moses Masika Wetangula.
