Why Don’t Kenyan Men Write Wills Or Declare Their Property?

Yesterday’s story about families battling for property worth billions of shillings in court really got many people talking.Maina had a discussion with two of his foreign friends who asked “Why are Kenyan men afraid of writing wills?”

It is apparent that the main reason why there are many court battles is because there is no proper allocation.

Could there be any truth to claims by some men that they risk being killed if they tell their wives or families about their property?

Are there other reasons why men don’t declare their property? Here is what the listeners had to say:

Teachers Ordered Back To Work

The Labour Court has ordered teachers to go back to work immediately and halt the on going  strike.

In a ruling delivered today, the court also ordered the Teachers Service Commission to pay teachers their September dues without deducting monies for days they didn’t work.

The TSC was also ordered not to sack any teacher who participated in the strike.

The court ordered the government and the teachers to form a reconciliation committee in  30 days to find ways through which the 50%-60% pay rise for teachers can be implemented.

Robin Williams family battle in court over his estate

Robin Williams wife and his children are embroiled in a court battle over his vast estate and personal items.

In papers filed in December in San Francisco Superior Court, Williams’ wife, Susan, accuses the comedian’s children from two previous marriages of taking items without her permission.

She has asked the court to exclude the contents of the Tiburon home that she shared with the star from the jewellery, memorabilia and other items Williams wanted the children to have.

His children from his previous marriages are saddened by the fact that his wife wants to change the trust agreement and rob them off their father’s clothing and personal items.

Susan however insists that Robin wanted her to keep living in their Tirubon home where he died.

Williams died at his home in August. The coroner ruled Williams’ death a suicide that resulted from asphyxia caused by hanging.

Ludacris offers baby mama $10,000 to abort

According to TMZ, Ludacris’s baby mama testified in court that it’s ridiculously ludicrous he’s fighting for full custody of their daughter, because he desperately wanted her to have an abortion to the point he even bribed her.

Tamika fuller  said when Luda found out she was pregnant he cried, but they weren’t tears of joy. He said it would ruin his life and he then urged her to terminate the pregnancy.

According to Tamika, Luda initially offered her $10K and a house if she lost the baby.

Fuller believes Luda’s quick marriage to Eudoxie was just a ploy to show the  judge he has a more stable home than her to enable him get full custody of the child.

Court postpones sentencing for the police imposter

Joshua Waiganjo who is accused of impersonating a police officer will have to wait longer for sentencing after a judge hearing his case adjourned it to establish whether he is a repeat offender.

Nyeri Chief Magistrate Wilbroda Juma found Waiganjo guilty of impersonating a senior police officer and obtaining money by false pretences from his unsuspecting victims.

The prosecutor in the case Stancelous Mwangi told the court that Waiganjo had formerly served a one-year jail term in August of 1998 after a Murang’a court charged him with passing himself off as a superintendent of police. Mwangi further said that in July 2002 Waiganjo was fined Sh2000 by a Molo court for again impersonating a superintendent of police.

Waiganjo however dismissed the claims by prosecution saying that it wasn’t until recently that he was remanded in the GK prison in Naivasha on charges of impersonation.

Justice Juma put off Waiganjo’s sentencing pending establishment of the prosecution’s allegations that the accused is a repeat offender.

Waiganjo through his lawyer challenged the postponement of his sentencing saying that his health is poor hence the need to conclude the case promptly.

Waiganjo was found guilty of five counts of impersonating a senior superintendent and promising to place people within the General Service Unit for a fee.

Waiganjo denied the charges but Justice Juma said the prosecution witnesses who appeared before the court provided sufficient evidence to prove that he defrauded members of the public.
