Moi Succession Case Takes A Fresh Twist After A New Development

In Kenya there are many cases in court over the succession of the deceased parents and spouses.

The deaths of former President Daniel Arap Moi and his son Jonathan has fuelled tensions in the family, as Moi's eldest grandson, Mr Collins Kibet Toroitich, fights for a slice of the wealth left behind by both politicians.

According to a report by Nation, the High Court judge Aggrey Muchelule allowed Collins to join his grandfather's succession case to claim damages caused by his alleged exclusion from Moi's estate.

Collins is separately fighting for wealth that his father, Jonathan, left and has become the unlikely source of a bitter succession war within the Moi family.

In both cases, Collins claims that assets have been irregularly transferred in plans to disinherit him.

He has claimed that Moi's estate is worth $3 billion (Sh340 billion), and that there is an effort by the estate administrator, lawyer Zeh rabanu Janmohammed, to conceal several assets spanning at least three countries.

Collins claims Moi had prime assets in Kenya, the United Kingdom, Malawi and Australia that have not been listed in court.

He adds that Ms Janmoham med has failed to give information regarding the disposal of 1,000 acres in Kimintet, near the Maasai Mara Game Reserve, and shares in Siginon Aviation worth Sh1.7 billion.

The former President in his will said all assets, moveable and im moveable, would be held in trust by Ms Janmohammed for his children, save for Kabarak University.
