A video of Nakuru Senator Susan Kihika's step-sisters disowning her on camera went viral on Friday, August 5.
In the clip, the duo, Peris Njoki and Carolyne Wanjiku, urged the county's residents not to elect their kin arguing that she is not dependable.
Peris, who has served time in jail, further pointed her woes to Kihika claiming that she was first arrested by police due to her influence.
"My name is Peris Njoki Kihika, the current Senator is my step-sister. I am here to ask you not to vote for her for she has frustrated me since 2013.
"She uprooted my maize and took me to jail in 2015 June where I spent 16 days. The case was, however, thrown out," stated Njoki.
Wanjiku, on the other hand, argued that the Senator, who is seeking to unseat Governor Lee Kinyanjui in the upcoming election, frustrated the family and is dragging the Ksh600 million wealth distribution among members.
She claimed that every time the extended family makes a decision, the Senator uses her influence to derail the efforts.
"Susan has frustrated us as a family which is why, to date, we have never divided the wealth. She always interferes. We cannot trust her in leadership because she will frustrate you citizens. We as a family support Governor Lee Kinyanjui," she explained.
Kenyans.co.ke attempts to reach Kihika for comment were met with silence since her mobile phone was not going through.
The family has been embroiled in the property tussle for more than a decade following the death of the family patriarch and the former Nakuru North Member of Parliament, Dickson Kihika Kimani.
In 2019, the case was forwarded to court pitting the politician's 41 children, most of whom want a share of their father's wealth.
Njoki was sentenced to jail after claims emerged that she had assaulted her sister Carolyne Wanjiku in 2015.
The High Court in Nakuru quashed her conviction on the basis 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 had been convicted of.
