Business billionaire Chris Kirubi died in June last year but left nothing for wife in his expansive Sh20 billion estate.
Kirubi left 80 percent of his assets to his son Robert Kirubi and daughter Mary-Anne Kirubi in his 1996 will, while giving his second daughter Fiona Kirubi Sh4 million.
Kirubi did not forget about his four siblings, who received Sh500 million apiece.
Fiona Kirubi and Robert Kirubi’s daughter Mary-Anne Kirubi reached an amicable agreement to grant Fiona 9.95 percent of the estate, which they divided evenly between their shares.
“We shall be grateful if you would record the following consent in the above matter. That an order be recorded that Fiona Wambui Kirubi shall receive 9.95 percent of the share of Robert Kirubi’s and Mary-Anne’s Kirubi’s portion of the estate, being 80 percent of the entire estate,” the consent reads in part.
That means she will receive about Sh1.6 billion from her siblings.
