In Summary

  • In the affidavit filed at Kitale Chief Magistrate Court in Trans Nzoia County, Libese also says that his polygamous father chased him out of his grandmother's house.

    • He says that his father had two wives and he was the only child to his late mother Rose Makokha - the first wife. The second wife, Nancy Ngaira, had three children.

    A 34-year-old man is now suing his father, seeking the court to compel him to give him his inheritance.

    Hillary Libese Sagala accuses his father, Wycliffe Ngaira Sagala, of neglect by failing to educate him.

    In the affidavit filed at Kitale Chief Magistrate Court in Trans Nzoia County, Libese also says that his polygamous father chased him out of his grandmother's house.

    He says that his father had two wives and he was the only child to his late mother Rose Makokha - the first wife. The second wife, Nancy Ngaira, had three children.

    According to Libese, his father developed a habit of selling parts of the family's land in Kaisagat, Kwanza Constituency, and he is worried that eventually, he will sell all the land.

    “The purpose of this affidavit is to stop my father from selling the remaining farm because we will have nowhere to live. I got married in 2018 and I am blessed with two children, but I am still living on my grandmother’s land,” Libese's affidavit continues.

    'I was not your mother's husband'

    But in a rejoinder, the father says that although Libese is his son, he was never married to his mother. Ngaira claims that the woman married another man immediately after giving birth to Libese.

    He asserts that Libese is an ungrateful son, bearing in mind that he sponsored his education to a level that he graduated as a mechanic from Kaveye Youth Polytechnic.

    Ngaira further says that Libese - in the company of other goons - attacked him and stabbed him in the back. After the incident, Ngaira was charged, convicted and sentenced to two years in prison.

    "After completing the sentence in 2012, I allocated him 0.66 points of an acre at Kaisagat, where he built a house and planted trees. He has, however, sold the property.

    "Now that he sold part of my land that I gave him, I do not have any other land to give him. I educated him until he became a mechanic and he should use his skills to buy his own land since he is not my only child,” the father says in his replaying affidavit.

    The hearing of the case is not yet set.
