Fanuel Okoth, whose mother is a sister to Kenyas Prime Minister Raila Odinga´s mother, was one of the beneficiaries of scholarships issued by the late Jaramogi Oginga Odinga to pursue studies in the former Soviet Union.
He is one of the few Kenyans who came abroad in the early 70´s. From Soviet Union, he settled in Sweden where he got married to his former Russian wife and got blessed with 4 children. He later got married to a Kenyan lady, Lilly Okoth with whom they have also lived with for quite some time before his death. May God rest his soul in eternal peace.
