More than six years since the death of former Homa Bay senator honourable Gerald Otieno Kajwang, his properties are still untouched because his widows have failed to agree over the distribution and control of the multimillion estates.
Some of the properties being fought for by the widows include houses in the country's Nairobi capital and others in Nyanza, shares in a few companies, savings in SACCOs and undisclosed amount of money in bank accounts.
The widows have kept on delaying the hearing of the case. In a addition, there's no progress in the case because the widows have also disagreed on valuation of the assets before hearing continues. The court had ruled that both widows write to the bank and the clerk of the Senate to inquire whether the estate has enough funds to facilitate the valuation.
One of the widows refused to sign a letter addressed to the bank and Senate clerk. However it has been discovered that one of Kajwang's parliamentary pension scheme has 11M that can be used to value the estate. The case shall continue after valuation is done.
Mr Ajwang Okoto, brother to the late Kajwang has also joined the case seeking a share of the estate According to filed court papers, Mr. Okoto alleged that a property in Lavington, Nairobi and a piece of land in Migori were mistakenly included in the list of Kajwang's assets. The properties allegedly belong to him.
