The High Court on Thursday ordered Kisumu Governor Anyang’ Nyong’o and his sister Risper Nyagoy to include all children belonging to their two sisters as beneficiaries of their late father’s multimillion-shilling property.
In her ruling, Justice Tripsisa Cherere also revoked the administrative letters and certificate of confirmation of grant that placed Prof Nyong’o and Dr Nyagoy as the sole controllers of the estate and appointed one of the nephews, Kenneth Odhiambo Okuthe as co-administrators of the late Hewson Shimei Nyong’o’s estate.
She further directed Prof Nyong’o and his other siblings who have been benefitting from the property to file an account of Shimei’s estate and certificate of confirmation that had been issued to them, about four years ago that gave them the power to control the estate.
They were directed to file within 45 days.
In the case, Prof Nyong’o’s nephews Mr Okuthe and Geoffrey Omondi had sued him and his sister Dr Nyagoy for leaving some relatives out of the list of beneficiaries of their late father’s estate.
