The destruction of a widow’s home in Nairobi’s Kitusuru Estate, which she claimed was due to disputes between her and her in-laws, has caused her to plead for justice.
The widow claimed that on the morning of December 10, her mother-in-law hired thugs to destroy her home.
“When I awoke in the morning, diggers had broken down my gate and wall and were inside my home.
She described the demolition of her property with much pain: “The 36 Goons were all over.
The widow recalled how problems began when her husband went away without the title deed being changed.
“My mother-in-law is evicting me from a house I’ve lived in for 30 years exploiting a legal loophole.
She told the media, “The title deed to the property still shows my husband’s name, and my in-laws are using that as a tactic to force me out and acquire my late husband’s fortune.”
The property in dispute is a prime half-acre parcel, and the widow insisted she has a right to it.
Since we hadn’t altered the title, my mother-in-law determined that the 1.5 acres belong to the estate in a case that was brought in 2006 regarding the property.
She said, “Since my husband and I bought this house together, I am entitled to half an acre and the rest should go to my three children.”
The widow claims that the police have failed to assist her in obtaining justice.
