  • Nakuru Senator Susan Kihika's stepmother, Margaret Wambui, is battling her two daughters for the control of property inherited from their father - former Nakuru North MP Dickson Kihika Kimani. 

    Wambui wants her daughters, Hellen Wangari and Erishifa Wanjiru, blocked from interfering and leasing a 50-acre land in Njoro, Nakuru County.

    The land is part of a 1,000-acre land left by the late MP to be inherited by his 41 children and seven widows. 

    Wambui filed a lawsuit at the Nakuru High Court with her case being listened to by Judge Rachel Ngetich.

    The widow argued that the children leased out her land to a developer without her consent. 

    She added that they were out to manage, cultivate and, later on, sell the land.

    “The applicant (Wambui) urges the court to grant conservatory orders of injunction, restricting the respondents (Wangari and Wanjiru) and their servants from interfering with her possession of the suit land,” reads the application.

    The case will be mentioned on February 11, 2021.

    In June 2020, the High Court in Nakuru overturned the conviction of one of the MP's daughters, and Senator Susan Kihika's sister, Peris Njoki. 

    Njoki had been sentenced to two years in jail on May 29, 2015, for assaulting her sister Caroline Kihika.

    The High Court ruled that the trial magistrate had erred in convicting Njoki without watertight evidence.

    The judge explained that the prosecution’s evidence pointed to a fight rather than an assault, which she Njoki had been convicted of.
