24 children of former Keiyo North MP the late William Murgor are involved in a bitter property war with his firstborn son who is the current Keiyo North MP James Murgor over his property.
The property in question includes vast agricultural and commercial pieces of land spread across Elgeyo Marakwet and Uasin Gishu counties, valued at about Sh500 million.
The 24 have accused the MP of locking them out of the inheritance, using his position as the administrator of the estate, by virtue that he is the firstborn son.
They have since sued him in court under the representation of Enit Murgor, who is claiming that the respondent has denied them a fair share of their father's property.
According to court papers quoted by the Standard, the group wants the Keiyo customary law which dictates that property is shared equally among households in polygamous cases applied.
Presiding over the case on Tuesday, Eldoret High Court Judge Hellen Omondi directed the two sides to mediate through the matter, with the mediation set to begin on Wednesday.
The petitioners are children of the 5 widows left behind by the late Murgor who was buried at his Kaptei home in Elgeyo Marakwet county.
