According to K24 Digital, two women filed an application barring the late Jonathan Moi's widow, Sylvia, from administering her husband's Sh 30 million estate.
The two women, Milka Nyambura and Beatrice Kipkemboi also claimed to have been married to the former president's son.
Nyambura and Beatrice objected to an application for grant of administration letters of Jonathan's estate to his wife and her son.
According to court documents, Sylvia and her son filed the court application seeking administration letters of the estate on Friday, November 13.
Nyambura, who insisted that she got married to Jonathan in 2008 as per Kikuyu customs, claimed that she was the first wife of the deceased and that he sired three children with her.
In her application, Nyambura argued that Sylvia left her and her children out of the administration of the estate.
Nyambura also told the court that she has been struggling to stay afloat after the death of Jonathan.
“My advocate, John Mburu, advised me that I have a right of share of the deceased property” Nyambura added after she told the court that Jonathan used to give her monthly upkeep of Ksh1,000,000.
Beatrice, on the other hand, claimed to be Jonathan's second wife.
The court was told that she and Jonathan were married through Kamba customary laws in 1998 and asked the court to grant her an extension to file an application objecting to the grant of letters of administration to Sylvia.
In her application, Beatrice claimed that Jonathan married her when she already had two children and together, they gave were blessed with two other children.
She alleged that after Jonathan’s burial, the three women met and agreed to apply for letters of administration of the estate.
High Court Judge Aggrey Muchelule granted the parties seven days to reach an out-of-court settlement over the matter. The mention of the case will be held on November 26, 2019.died child death
