Kenya’s ex-President grandson evicted over unpaid house rent

Collins Kibet

A grandson of Daniel arap Moi, Kenya’s ex-president who died two years ago, has been evicted from his house over unpaid rent that has accumulated to more than $2,100 in six months.

It comes amid a court case as Mr Moi’s relatives battle over the management of the family estate.

Collins Kibet, 45, told a court that he was broke and unable to pay his rent or provide for his family – adding that he was evicted last week.

He accused his relatives including his stepmother – who are administrators of his father’s estate – of excluding him from inheriting his father’s wealth.

Mr Kibet’s father Jonathan Toroitich, Mr Moi’s son, died in 2019 without leaving a will. The family’s wealth is estimated to be vast.

Mr Kibet wants the court to bar his step-mother and step-brother from acting as administrators and to be included as a beneficiary of the family estate.

Mr Moi was Kenya’s longest-serving president. He was in office for 24 years, until intense pressure forced him to step down in 2002.
