Nyeri - The family of a former Nyeri MP, Joseph Kiboi Theuri, is embroiled in a row involving his estate valued at about half a billion shillings.
One of his sons, Andrew Wairagu Kiboi, has moved to court seeking orders to bar his mother, Ann Wanjiku and other siblings from disposing off part of the KES 500 million estate.
Wairagu has urged a Lands and Environment Court sitting in Nyeri to stop the planned sale of prime piece of land situated less than 15 kilometers from Nyeri town.
In a sworn affidavit, he says that his mother is in the process of selling part of 77 acres of land which is adjacent to Mweiga Township in Kieni West sub-County.

He says that the land belongs to the whole family although it is registered in the name of his mother, and that they had not resolved to sell the property.
The land in question belonged to his late father who died in 2002.
According to Wairagu, his father had expressed in his will to have the parcel of land shared out among all his five children.
The former MP’s wife has been given 15 days to respond to the allegations leveled against her before the case is heard.
