Twist and turns in the Kirima land tussle as foreigner unleashes succession grant dated January 31 2011.

The Kirima land fiasco continues to escalate as the foreigner who claims to be the real owner of the land has unleashed a succession grant dated January 31 2011 issued to him by the high court.

The confirmation of grant was issued to Benardo De Masi after filing for succession following his father’s death.

“I hereby certify that the above written grant of representation to the estate of the late Domenico De Masi issued to Benardo Vincezo De Masi therein named has this January 31 2011 ben confirmed by the court pursuant to the provisions of section 71 of the Laws of succession Act,” the grant reads.

According to the grant, there are 9 beneficiaries of the said Njiru land who have shares in the said land that has now been given to the Kirima family by the Kisumu court.

In the Schedule, Bernado has 21.6 acres from the said land and Moses Maina Ngugi has 136 acres.

The De Masi’s beneficiaries who include Antonio, Jospena, Elizabeta, Eliana, Nicholas and Bernardo have an equal share to the other 369-acre land.

The matter by Bernado who has claimed ownership will now be mentioned before Justice Hillary Chemitei on November 14.

This even as the Kirima family is divided over negotiation between estate administrators, leaders and residents.

One section of the family has distanced itself from the alleged negotiations saying the talks have not been ratified by all the 15 beneficiaries of the said land.

On Friday, thousands of residents through their association moved to court through Lawyer Danstan Omari claiming that if their properties are demolished, they will suffer irreparable harm.
