A 62-year-old man claiming to be Kenya's third president Mwai Kibaki's biological son has filed a lawsuit against the president's family in an effort to determine whether Kibaki left him any of his riches.
Jacob Ocholla Mwai has petitioned the Nyeri Family Court to compel the Kibaki family to accept him as the firstborn son and give him an equal share of the late president's immense fortune.
Through his lawyers Omoke Morara and Peacela Atim, Mr. Ocholla has sought a succession dispute order to compel Judy Kibaki, David Kagai, Jimmy Kibaki, and Anthony Githinji to begin dispersing the former president's estate.
According to Ocholla's declaration, at the time of Kibaki's death, he may have already drafted his Will, and he wants to know who should be chosen as the administrator of Kibaki's estate and who should get its assets.
"It appears that Jacob Ocholla Mwai is the deceased's legitimate son and one of the individuals entitled to a portion of his intestate estate. This is to direct you (Kibaki children) to attend before the High Court in Nyeri and either accept or reject the probate of the aforementioned will, or show cause why letters of administration of Kibaki's estate should not be issued to Ocholla," reads the statement.
