Former Bomet governor Joyce Laboso’s husband Edwin Abonyo is currently in a court row with his in-laws over the control of his late wife’s Multi-Million estate.
This is after Abonyo last year filed for the control of over 100 Million estate last year and a temporary court order was issued with the gazettement done in January 2021.
Then before the elapse of the 30 days his sister-in-law Judy Cheptoo moved to court to challenge the decision through Sang and Sang advocates, and the case was scheduled for mention on March 24th, 2021.
Some of the property in question in the court document includes a piece of land in Karen, a townhouse in Kilimani, a parcel of land in Kapletundo in Kericho County, and another parcel in Sotik.
The late governor Laboso also had investments in the form of shares at Kenya Grain Growers Co-operative Union (KGGCU), two parcels of land in Kisumu, land in Nakuru town, and a residential plot in Bomet town.
She also had others in shares Kenya Commercial Bank (KCB), shares at Sinendet Multipurpose Co-operative Society, and shares at Parliament Sacco.
Others are her benefits at the Egerton University Pension Scheme, where she was lecturing before crossing over to politics, and her accounts at KCB Equity Co-op bank and the Absa Kenya Limited.
The whole estate is estimated to be worth around 100Million Shillings after the withdrawal of all the liabilities estimated to be in the neighborhood of 48 Million.
It is still unclear if the late Laboso left a will on the estate, but sources say that the sons are backing Abonyo in the move.
