Barely a month after the burial of prominent Uasin Gishu County farmer and politician Mzee Jackson Kibor, a bitter property row has broken out in his family, with his youngest widow, Ms. Eunita Chelimo, alleging a plot to deprive her of the property left behind by her husband.
Chelimo revealed on Wednesday at her Chepkoilel home, where she held a press conference, that she was evicted from her Kabenes matrimonial home and her 57 heads of livestock were divided among her stepchildren, just a month after her husband was buried.
According to the youngest widow, the plot to deny her share of the inheritance began even before her husband was laid to rest.
“I was surprised to be served with property restrictions filed by some of Mzee Kibor’s children which were interestingly issued on April 1, the same day we were burying him,” Ms. Chelimo said.
“Since then I have had no peace because I have been ejected from my Kabenes matrimonial home and on Tuesday my 57 livestock were shared by my co-wives’ children and they left me with nothing,” she added.
She called on the government to come to her aid, saying she had been physically assaulted and had reported the matter to police.
“My children are still young, and I need to take care of them. They deserve their rightful share of property left behind by their father. But if they lose their inheritance their future will be bleak,” she said.
Mzee Kibor had three other wives – Mary (deceased), Josephine Jepkoech and Naomi Jeptoo. He had a total of 28 children.
Two weeks before his death, he had then bequeathed each son 200 acres of land and 100 acres to each of the daughters, among other property.
