Chris Kirubi died in June last year. Since then many have wondered what would happen with his expansive Ksh20 billion estate?

In his 1996 will, Kirubi bequeathed his son Robert Kirubi and daughter Mary-Anne Kirubi 80 percent of the estate, while gifting his second daughter Fiona Kirubi Ksh4 million.

Kirubi didn't leave out his 4 siblings, with each getting Ksh500 million. Robert Kirubi and daughter Mary-Anne Kirubi amicably agreed to give Fiona 9.95 percent of the estate which they split equally from their shares.

“We shall be grateful if you would record the following consent in the above matter. That an order be recorded that Fiona Wambui Kirubi shall receive 9.95 percent of the share of Robert Kirubi’s and Mary-Anne’s Kirubi’s portion of the estate being 80 percent of the entire estate,” the consent reads in part.

That means she will receive about Ksh1.6 billion from her siblings.
