A judge has been disqualified from a family dispute involving the administration and distribution of the billions of shillings inheritance from the late businessman Lawrence Nginyo Kariuki.

Judge Maureen Odero said she does not feel comfortable handling the case in which the children of the late politician are locked in a fight over his estate valued at nearly Sh4 billion.

Judge Odero said she had dealt with another business dispute involving control of Nginyo Towers, which is located within Nairobi’s central business district, owned by Nginyo Investments Limited.

It emerged that the company and the building – Nginyo Towers – are some of the properties that are part of the late businessman and are at the center of the succession struggle.

She assigned the probate case to Judge Thande Mugure and ordered that it be brought up on October 4 for instructions. The attorneys involved in the case did not object to the judge’s challenge.

The case had been called for subpoena to confirm the position of several requests filed in the case, including one filed by Nginyo’s daughter, Brenda Nyambura Kiragu, seeking to annul her father’s will of June 13, 2014, which excluded her. her and two other children born out of wedlock.

The court was also required to be informed of the status of a forensic heritage audit, as ordered by Judge Stella Mutuku, who has since been transferred to Kajiado in July this year.
