Court adjourns late Minister Simeon Nyachae's succession hearing

The family of the late Moi-era Cabinet Minister Simeon Nyachae will have to wait a little bit longer to share his multi-billion estate.

This is after High Court Judge Erick Ogolla adjourned Nyachae's succession hearing to July 25, 2023.

In the suit, a woman who claims to have been married to Nyachae is seeking to be included in his inheritance.

Margaret Chweya Nyachae, in the petition, claims that the late minister's will was altered after his demise.  

Margaret's son, Ronny Nyachae, has called for swift action from the court.

"I just want justice for my family; it's just unfortunate that we can't sit down together as a family and sort things out. My stepbrother, Charles Nyachae, is here today. He is my family and I love him. I just want a peaceful ending to this matter," he said following the court ruling.

Margaret has been accused of being married to four men, an allegation she vehemently denies. 

Nyachae, 88, passed away at the Nairobi Hospital in February 2021 after a long illness. 

At the time of his passing, Nyachae had five wives and 20 children. His first wife Esther died in August 2016 after battling a long illness.
