Nairobi - A woman claiming to be the late Homa Bay Senator Otieno Kajwang's wife says she has been with him 19 years and is not just a girlfriend.
The woman, Faith Vivian Otieno showed up at the Lee Funeral home to view Kajwang's body but was denied entry by next of kin.
She and her acquaintances immediately started wailing and shouting, saying that they were being denied their right.
" I am not a girlfriend. I have been with him 19 years. I am his wife. I have two children to prove it, she shouted to the bemusement of onlookers and members of the press.

She apparently has a 19 year old son with Kajwang, and an 18 year old daughter, whom she was with at the mortuary.
She also complained that she had been left out of plans by the funeral committee.
Kajwang is set to be buried next week, with funeral arrangements set to kick off immediately after results of a postmortem probing his death are released.
He died Tuesday night of apparent cardiac arrest at the Mater hospital in Nairobi.
