Mutula Kilonzo’s family to settle property dispute out of court
The family of the late Senator Mutula Kilonzo has agreed to mediation process in the case pending at the Family Division Court. The family is embroiled in a legal battle over his multi-billion-shilling business empire.
According to papers filed in court, Mutula Kilonzo wrote his will on January 14, 1987 and declared that Pricilla Felista Mutete shall not receive anything from his property or estate.
“I declare that my marriage to her was finally dissolved by the High Court of Kenya at Nairobi in Divorce case No. 1 of 1980 by way of decree Absolute issued on 22/8/85. A certified copy is to be found in my office file No. 447A/80,” reads the will.
The late further declared Mrs Cyrose Nduku Musau – Nduku Kilonzo as his sole lawful wife and further appointed her together with his father, Kilonzo Musembi, as sole executors of his will.
He further wrote that his law practice, goodwill and all fixtures, furniture and fittings be sold to the highest bidder and the proceeds there from vested in his estate.
The first option to purchase the said practice shall be given to any advocate practicing with him in the said firm at the time of his death and opportunity given to him or her to pay any price agreed over a period of 24 months.
It is this will that Makueni Senator Mutula Kilonzo Jr, Rose Wanza, Kethi Kilonzo and Michael Musembi are opposed to their step-mother, Cyrose Nduku, single-handedly dividing the estate accordingly.
The children want the Court to stop Nduku from disposing off, transferring or alienating shares of all private companies in their late father’s estate pending confirmation of grant she had applied for.
The matter is coming mention on the March 21 before Justice Rose Ougo.
