The Kirima family saga has taken a new twist with children of the wealthy politician accusing their step-mother of "wasting the estate with a Tanzania politician". In an affidavit filed in court, Gerishon Kirima's children accuse their step-mother, Teresia Wairimu, of transferring some of the family property to Stephen Ngonyani, a Tanzanian MP also known as Prof Maji Marefu. They are alleging that Wairimu was cohabiting with Prof Maji Marefu even before their father passed on last year. In an statement, Anne Wangari Kirima accusing Wairimu of bequeathing some properties and money to the MP. She further alleges that Wairimu married the Korogwe Rural MP in 2003 in Tanga, Tanzania when their father's health began to deteriorate. And to support their claims, Wangari has attached a copy of the marriage certificate allegedly solemnized by Ahmedi Mrisho and Alhaji Sheikh on behalf of National Muslim Council in Tanzania. They accuse Wairimu of transferring valuable properties to the politician and sending him colossal sums of money. They further complain against their step-mother for allowing the Korogwe MP to occupy premises belonging to the estate without paying rent. They further claim Wairimu has siphoned more than Sh5 million and have supported the claims by attaching computer print-outs from a local mobile network showing money transfers totaling to Sh5,125,000 from her to the politician. The transfers were made between September 2009 and February 2010. Also produced in court as evidence, is a copy of a transfer lease of a prime property in Nairobi Fedha Estate by Wairimu to Ngonyani in 2005 which states that it was transferred in "consideration of mutual love and affection". It is their claim that Wairimu and the politician have continued relating as a man and wife since the said marriage and that Kirima divorced her customarily when he learnt that she had ran off with the Tanzanian. They say Kirima wrote a letter to his brother James Njuguna on September 23 asking him to return Wairimu to her parent's home in line with Kikuyu customary law. The family will be making a plea to the court to be allowed to play video clip of Kirima allegedly giving out the instructions. Kirima died on December 28 while undergoing treatment in South Africa leaving behind a divided family. His third wife and children had started feuding over the property even before his death. President Kibaki urged the family to reconcile during Kirima's funeral. But since then, the family has been embroiled in a tussle over his property which is estimated to be worth more than Sh2 billion with rent collected monthly estimated to be nearly Sh20 million. The family will today make their arguments before Justice David Maraga. Source: Nairobi Star.
