Nicholas Biwott’s daughter declines multi-million inheritance

Rita Field-Marsham declines millions in inheritance from Nicholas Biwott

Rita who is one of Biwott’s seven children listed to inherit his estate swore deed of disclaimer releasing her one-fourteenth share of inheritance amounting to hundreds of millions.

Her share of the inheritance will be divided equally to other shares in accordance with Biwott’s will written on January 19, 2017, six months before his death.

Her statement read in part that “I am named as a beneficiary of a share of the deceased’s estate,” she stated. “I wish to disclaim all my right, title and interest to the share in the deceased’s estate.”


Rita who is a lawyer and humanitarian however did not disclose her reasons for declining the inheritance.

Biwott had seven children with different women and each of them was left a share of inheritance.

None of the women was listed as a beneficiary in his will with only his children getting a share of the late billionaire’s wealth.

Rita Field-Marsham and Rhoda Jakobsoon are the daughters of Johanna, a woman of Dutch origin, who married Mr Biwott in 1965.

His other children include Ms Esther Koimett (Investment Secretary in the Finance ministry) Klara, Gloria and Emmanuel and Maria (daughter from Biwott’s relationship with Prof Margaret Kamar).


Biwott’s wealth remained a closely guarded secret until lawyers administering his will decided to make it public to dispel rumors and establish the truth about his immense wealth.
