Woman In legal battle With Nephew Over Dagoretti Property
A woman is in a legal battle with her nephew over property located in Dagoretti and Uthiru area in Nairobi County.
The complainant Roul Muchene claims that her auntie Rachel Nduta has taken over the estate of his late father and she has refused to vacate the matrimonial home and settle in a land where she was allocated.
Muchene through his lawyers Danstan Omari and Omayio Aranga told justice Ogutu Mboya that Nduta had no legal documents allowing her to occupy the first estate of the late Muchene.
“After you are married, and came back after your marriage failed, you are only accepted as a daughter, but you are not entitled to any property,” Omari said.
Nduta during the hearing admitted that she has no written agreement permitting her to occupy matrimonial home, stating that her late father only communicated verbally to her two other siblings.
“We had an exclusive conversation with my late father and my other two siblings, it is during that time that he gave me part of his vast estate,”Nduta argued.
The court heard that Nduta took advantage of Muchene having been outside the country for quite number of years and took possession of the estate.
Nduta had been previously married before her marriage broke down and opted to return to her matrimonial home.
