Fresh battle in former President Moi’s wealth as creditor moves to court seeking compensation

 A new twist in the division and further inheritance of the former and Late President Daniel Arap Moi’s Multi-billion estate after a creditor surfaces.

This is after the family of ex-chief Noah Chelugui was enjoined in a court case seeking to stop the former head of state’s family from inheriting his wealth amid debts.

The family is seeking to stop the Mois from appointing an administrator until they take into account the Kshs 1 billion the former president owed the former chief.

Chelugui’s widow Susan and son David moved to court to seeking 1 billion compensation awarded to the family from their 53-acres piece of land acquired illegally by Moi.

They threatened to ensure Moi’s will was not executed if their wish was not granted   

“Should this court confirm the said grant (of appointing an administrator), justice will be defeated on our part as it will be difficult or even impossible to execute the judgment and/or enjoy the fruits of our litigation.

“We are entitled to our share as ruled by the Land and Environmental Court,” David Chelugui stated in court documents.

The Chelugui’s are further demanding for an extra 1 billion to cover for the legal cost and other incidentals incurred during their fight for compensation.

Former President Moi passed on on February 4, 2020 leaving behind massive wealth in diverse sectors; large-scale farming, banking, real estate, transport and logistics, education and media.

In his will, former head of state noted that all his children (Jennifer, Raymond, Philip, John Mark, Doris, June, Gideon and the late Jonathan) would get an equal portion of the property.
