5 multi-million shillings property at the center of the Wamalwa family legat tussle
This is what they are fighting over
At the center of the dispute is property valued in millions with each of the siblings keen on getting a share.
The Wamalwa family home in Karen which was partly paid for by the government shortly after Wamalwa’s death is part of the disputed property.
Reports indicate that Wamalwa’s widow Yvonne Nambia Wamalwa bequeathed the estate to her daughter Michelle Nafuna Wamalwa and son Derek Mboya, arguing out that it does not form part of the estate of the deceased (Wamalwa), as it was not owned by the deceased prior to his death.
Two apartments at Akili 1 Estate located along Nairobi’s Mbagathi Road is also part of the property that has seen the siblings tear into each other with accusations and counter accusations.
The siblings are also battling for the control of the ex-vice president’s 40 acres of land in Trans Nzoia and 3.8 acres in Milimani, Kitale.
It has also emerged that 3.34 acres of land on which Wamalwa’s residential home stands is also disputed in what is turning out to be an all-out war pitting brothers against brothers, sisters against sisters.
Siblings clash in public withCS Wamalwa caught in the middle
On Friday, Michelle Wamalwa and Duke Mboya had alleged that Devolution CS Eugene Wamalwa had teamed up with a section of the family to dethrone them from their father’s estate.
"As soon as dad passed away, it was basically downhill from there. Because [sic] dad was not there anymore, they pounced on us and tried to take advantage of us," Michele revealed.
“The people who fighting against us are extremely influential and respected, they are on TV every day with the President or the Deputy President” Duke revealed.
Michelle alleged that as a result, she had dropped out of school for a year ago with “If you want to continue with school… If you want food, then sell the house,” being the answer she constantly receives whenever she reaches out for help from family members.
However, on Saturday, three of The Late Vice President Kijana Wamalwa's children William Wamalwa (Junior), William Wamalwa (Senior) and Alice Muthoni Wamalwa maintained that the serious allegations by their siblings are in bad taste, malicious and meant to embarrass the family.
"It was meant to cast our family in bad light. That is regrettable and sad that this matter has turned out this way.
We were surprised to see a statement issued by Mboya touching on the matters relating to our late father's estate to which he is a stranger as he is neither a beneficiary nor an authorized person to speak on our behalf." Alice said.
