The body of the widow of former Foreign Affairs Minister Robert Ouko has been transferred from Lazurus Funeral Home in Kericho to Lee Funeral Home in Nairobi.
Siloam Hospital, which owns Lazarus mortuary, confirmed to the Nation that the body of Christabel Ouko was taken to Nairobi at around 11am on Tuesday.
“The body has been transferred from here to Lee Funeral Home,” said former Roads Minister Franklin Bett, who owns the hospital.
Mrs Ouko had been rushed for treatment at the facility after the Monday evening accident at Muhoroni on Kisumu-Kericho road.
She died minutes later while undergoing treatment from what doctors said was internal bleeding.
Mr Bett said Mrs Ouko was unconscious when she arrived and doctors tried to resuscitate her in vain.
“The doctors did all they could. Sadly she passed,” said Mr Bett.
She was brought in around 4pm together with her son, Mr Ken Ouko, who escaped unhurt.
Two other occupants of the vehicle, a man and woman, sustained minor injuries and were treated and released.
Mr Ouko was driving when the accident. The car was towed to Kericho Police station.
Raila Odinga says the country will greatly miss Mrs Ouko.
