The also mentioned that Ouko being a prominent leader who died when he was in government,his home remains a landmark in which he can be remembered,and thus should be converted to a cultural center to keep his legacy alive.
Mr Mbaja told the couple: "Even my parents would not accept this nonsense if they were to rise from their graves today. We shall fight to the bitter end."
Mrs Ouko on the other hand maintained that she had to sell the home,since her husband left a will that gave her authority over their estate.
