  • David Waiganjo Koinange, the son of the late cabinet minister Mbiyu Koinange, is dead.

    A member of the family, who did not want to be named, told Kenyans.co.ke that Waiganjo died on Thursday evening, September 10, in a road accident that took place at around 9 pm.

    Waiganjo was driving to his farm in Mau-Narok from Nakuru town, when the fatal incident occurred.

    Njoro Sub-County Police Commander Mohammed Huka has since confirmed the incident, indicating that one of the rear tyres in Waiganjo's vehicle burst after which the Range Rover vehicle rolled on the Mau-Narok road several times.

    “The vehicle is completely written off,” Huka stated.

    The wreckage was taken to the Mau Narok Police Station and the body to the Egerton University mortuary.

    Waiganjo was a farmer in Mau Narok who leased his land to smallholder farmers from Nakuru and Nyandarua counties.

    His death comes months after Justice Aggrey Muchelule ruled that all of Koinange’s 10 children and his two widows had an equal stake in his properties spread across Kenya.

    The case was one of the oldest family disputes in the country.

    Some of the property that the judge ordered be sold included thousands of acres and property in Nairobi, Mombasa, Nakuru, Narok and Kiambu as well as shares in several companies worth billions of shillings

    Proceeds from the sale of his property are set to be equally divided among the dependants.
