Governor Nyong’o, sister face jail term in row : The Standard



 Kisumu Governor Anyang’ Nyong’o and his sister Nyagoy Nyong’o could be jailed for up to six months should an application by his nephew sail through.

Yesterday, Kenneth Odhiambo made a fresh application to have the two punished for failing to comply with an order issued in October, directing them to file an account of Prof Nyong’o’s father’s property within 45 days.
The application came a few hours after Nyong’o and Ms Nyagoy withdrew an appeal challenging a court decision directing them to share the property.
According to Odhiambo, the two and other family members; Susan Mudhune, Esther Nyong’o and Mary Owiti were yet to render an account of the estate.

“The estate…stands to be wasted if an account is not opened for the purposes of depositing all proceeds of the estate,” he said.
In an application filed under a certificate of urgency, Odhiambo sought for five orders including prayers for a jail term for both Nyong’o and Nyagoy for a period not exceeding six months.
On October 11, Justice Thrispisa Cherere revoked the administrative certificate that placed Nyong’o and Nyagoy as the sole controllers of the expansive estate.
This was after his nephews, both named Kenneth Odhiambo, lodged a successful suit in which they were seeking to have their families included in the list of beneficiaries.
They argued that other family members were also left out.

The estate valued at about Sh200 million includes 100 acres in Miwani under a 99-year lease, parcels of land in Manyatta, Tamu and Milimani estates, and East Rata in Seme sub-county in Kisumu. It also includes another parcel of land with flats along Jogoo Road in Nairobi.
In earlier proceedings, Nyongo and Nyagoy had objected to the inclusion of the two nephews, saying they were not beneficiaries of the property.
