High Court To Rule On If Mwai Kibaki's Body Will Be Exhumed As Judy Kibaki Makes Her Stand Clear

Third president of Kenya Emilio Stanley Mwai Kibaki passed away in Nairobi and was kindly buried at his remote Othaya home in Nyeri county several months ago.

There has been a request to exhume the former president's remains in order to do a DNA paternity analysis, thus this could alter in the future.

The case revolves around two people, one of whom goes by the name of Jacob Ogolla and the other is a woman who has been given the codename JNL by the court. They request the exhumation because, according to them, they are Kibaki's biological children and require it to prove their paternity.

Justice Eric Ogolla is debating the exhumation of Kibaki's body, and Judy Kibaki has spoken out against it.

Judy contends in court that the exhumation of her father should not be allowed since the petitioners (Ogolla and the woman) are not warranted in their request.

"Judy, Kibaki's daughter, disputes Mr. Ocholla and JNL's claims about her father's parentage and claims that the requests for the orders necessary to exhume Kibaki's remains and provide protection while doing so are unjustified.
