Kisumu Governor Anyang’ Nyong’o and his sister Risper Nyagoy, failed to appear at a Kisumu Court on Tuesday morning for their sentencing.
The duo were expected to be sentenced, after being found guilty of disobeying a court order that required them to include their nephews in the list of beneficiaries of property left behind by their late father, Shimei Nyong’o.
However, the duo failed to appear in court as directed by Kisumu High Court Lady Justice Tripsisa Cherere.
It is still not clear why Nyong’o and his sister skipped the session.
Following their absence, the sentencing has now been pushed forward to Thursday, May 30, 2019.
In October last year, Justice Cherere ordered Nyong’o and his sister to include their nephews in the list of beneficiaries of property left behind by the Senior Nyong’o.
However, Nyong'o and the sister did not abide to the court order.
The case was filed by Kenneth Okuthe, who is Governor Nyong’o’s cousin.
The property in contention includes parcels of land in Miwani, Manyatta and East Rata in Seme sub-county, valued at Sh200 million.
