About a month after the funeral of Uasin Gishu County farmer and prominent politician Jackson Jackson Kibor, a bitter dispute over ownership has erupted in his family, with his young widow, Eunita Chelimo, claiming a plot to seize her property left by her husband. . .
Ms Chelimo revealed Wednesday that she had been evicted from her marriage home in Kabenes and that her 57 animals were shared among her stepchildren.
The widow claimed to have been physically assaulted by a family member and the case is in the hands of the police. She claimed that agricultural inputs and tractors were seized and distributed among the children of her fellow wives.
Speaking at her Chepkoilel home on Wednesday, where she convened a press conference, she claimed that some relatives wanted to snatch her property from her which she inherited from her late husband.
“I was shocked to be informed about the property restrictions imposed by some of Mzee Kibor’s children, which were released on April 1, the same day we were burying him,” she said.
She added: “Since then I have not been at peace as I was evicted from my marriage house in Kabenes and on Tuesday my 57 cows were shared with the children of my fellow wives and they did not leave me. There is nothing,” she said. .
She called on the government to help her, saying she had been physically assaulted and reported the matter to police.
