'I lost my dad when I was only aged 2' Maina Kageni opens up

Succession battles in Kenya have left many families in anguish years after their parents died. But for Maina Kageni things were different.

Speaking during the morning show on Classic 105, Maina said that what saved them from the succession battles was his father’s will.

‘My dad died when I was two years old. Luckily for him he left behind a will and after his death it was entrusted to trustees.

Maina added

Immediately I turned 21 the properties were transferred to me.’

Maina Kageni was however quick to point out that his dad would have left his properties to his mother rather than to trustees.

‘My dad was guilty why did he not leave everything to my mother?

Look at the Michuki’s, JM Kariuki and Njenga Karume and see how they keep fighting in court.
