The family of the late Juja MP George Thuo has been embroiled in a tussle pitting Thuo’s inheritance estimated to be worth billions of shillings.

The case involves his wife Agrippina Thuo, her grandson Michael Muriu, who claim that a will presented in court as Thuo’s last wishes was not a legitimate document.

Before Mr. Thuo’s death on June 15 2010, he left his family warring over a will which, besides his wife and children, gave his long-time girlfriend a piece of property as inheritance.

Mr. Muriu claims that was forged as it was not his grandfather’s signature. Muriu's grandmother, however, insists that it was a legitimate document, since she was allegedly familiar with it.

Thuo owned numerous properties in Thika Town as well as huge tracts of land that included a 14-acre piece of land near the Embu airstrip, 130 acres of land opposite Mang'u High School and seven acres of land within the main Thika Roundabout.

In the contested will, the late Thuo appointed his wife and grandson George Thuo as the executors of the will.

He then interestingly left his alleged long-time girlfriend Ruth Njeri his house in Thika section three, as inheritance.

It is this same will that led to a criminal fight, with Wangari, junior Thuo, his nephew Francis Njuguna, his second-born daughter Mary Nyokabi and fifth born son Nichodemus Gatoho, being the accused persons.

They were charged with forgery whose main aim was intention to deceive.

Muriu, a lawyer whose signature was in the will and as one who witnessed Thuo making his last wishes, will testify against the four alongside George Gichira and Njeri, the alleged girlfriend.
