Jacob Ocholla Mwai sues Kibaki family
Jacob Ocholla Mwai a 62-year-old claiming to be the late President Mwai Kibaki’s biological son has sued the family.
Mr Ocholla, through his lawyers Omoke Morara and Ms Peacela Atim, has filed a succession dispute order to prompt Kibaki’s children, Judy Kibaki, David Kagai, Jimmy Kibaki and Anthony Githinji, to begin distributing the former President’s estate.
Jacob Ocholla Mwai wants the court to compel the Kibaki family to recognize him as the firstborn son and give him an equal share of the late President's vast wealth.
According to Ocholla’s affidavit, at the time Kibaki died, he might have already written his Will and he is seeking to know who should be appointed as the administrator of Kibaki’s estate and who should benefit from it.
“It appears that Jacob Ocholla Mwai is the lawful son of the deceased and one of the persons entitled to share in his undisposed estate. Now this is to direct you (Kibaki children) to appear in the High Court at Nyeri and accept or refuse the probate of the said will or show cause why letters of administration of Kibaki’s estate should not be granted to Ocholla.”
