AN 80 YEAR OLD WIDOW FIGHT FOR 600 MILLION PROPERTY

An octogenarian Widow (80 years old) of a prominent Mombasa businessman the late Gaspar Walele is appealing to the government through the office of the Director of Criminal Investigation (DCI) George Kinoti to intervene in a fraud and forgery case where her three sons and the family advocate who is the current Mombasa Senator Hon Mohamed Faki have colluded to deprive property worth 600 million she inherited from her late husband.

Addressing the media in her home in Majengo Mvita Sub-county Mrs Walele said she was married to her late husband when she was 18 years old.

Mrs. Katharina Walele said they had 12 children with the late Walele but four are deceased, leaving them with 8 children (5 daughters and 3 sons) before her husband died in 2012 aged 75 years old.

Mrs Walele pointed out immediately after the death of her husband she has been in loggerheads with her sons who want to disinherit her through forged will documents.

The widow said she had struggled with her husband to get the wealth he left behind which now the boys claim to own according to the will.

Mrs. Katharina, who was accompanied by her daughters, said it’s against African culture for the family property to be divided while the widow is still alive.

She disputed the will of the family arguing that it is not possible for such a thing to happen when a widow is still alive.

The deceased served as councilor of the defunct Mombasa Municipal Council and was one time Mombasa branch chairman of the Kenya National Chamber of Commerce and Industry (KNCCI).

Ms. Elinora Walele, deceased daughter who dubbed as the family spokesperson said one of their brothers gave him a will which he purported was left by their father in the care of their family lawyer before he died.

Ms. Elinora said they disputed the will because it had no signature of the lawyer and their late father and after he was confronted he came back with another will but a photocopy signed by their late father, the senator who is their lawyer and senator law firm secretary and after two weeks their eldest son also called and said he had their father original will but they also read mischief when the signature differed.

According to Ms Elinora they sensed there was a scheme to defraud their old ailing mother after three different wills were produced and reported the matters to the offices of DCI Mombasa County as a case of forgery and fraud.

Elinora said they produced their late father genuine signatures through documents which were in their custody together with the copies of wills for forensic analysis which were taken to Nairobi by the office of DCI Mombasa and the will signatures were found to be forged and fake.

The late Walele widow is now demanding the arrest of her three sons and their family lawyer and her secretary for plotting to defraud her and her five daughters of their share of inheritance.

According to Elinira even after the DCI finding a forgery case her three brothers and the lawyer Hon Faki have not been called to write statements in the CID Urban offices Mombasa.

Mrs. Katharina Walele is now demanding for the original will which is in the custody of Senator Faki and pointed out most of her late husband’s property were also omitted in the forged wills.

The property the widow is fighting to possess includes commercial buildings and plots in Mombasa and Nairobi and also chunks of land in Taita Taveta.
