A Kangemi man who threatened to kill his father over inheritance row has been charged at a Kibera court.
George Kinyanjui was charged before Kibera senior principal magistrate Phillip Mutua where he pleaded for a lenient bond term.
He is accused of threatening to kill his father Jenga Kinuthia on September 26 in the Kangemi location in Dagoretti within Nairobi county.
The charge sheet says that he uttered threatening words to Kinyanjui at 3:30 of the same fateful day contrary to the penal code. He is said to have shouted to his dad that ‘Lazima unipee mali yangu ama nikukate-kate’ (I demand my share of the inheritance or I will harm you).
That day, court records indicate that the complainant was at his place in Mau-Mua when the accused, who is his son, arrived while armed with a panga.
He is said to have engaged his father over the inheritance then threatened to kill him after being told off.
It is reported that the accused mentioned that he wanted his share including the share his father was granted by his grandfather so that he can move on with life and do other things since the complaint seemed not ready to act on the matter.
The shaken complainant is said to have run for safety at a shop belonging to one of his tenants where he hid until the accused was out of sight before reporting the matter to police.
Mutua granted him a bond of Ksh 300,000 bonds with the surety of the same amount.
He also directed that the case be mentioned after a fortnight for further directions.
