Sentencing of Nyong’o, sister set for Thursday : The Standard

by kenya-tribune

Kisumu Governor Anyang’ Nyong’o (pictured) and his sister Nyogoy Nyong’o who are set to be sentenced for contempt will know their fate on Thursday.
The duo was expected in court for sentencing yesterday. However, the governor did not show up. His lawyer told High Court judge Thrispisa Cherere he was away in the US on an official duty.
The lawyer, Jefferson Museve, said Nyogoy had just jetted back in the country. He told court the duo’s mother had also suffered a heart attack.

“We are asking the court to grant us 14 more days to file a report. Their mother suffered a heart attack,” said Museve.
He presented a medical document as evidence. He said the governor was expected to fly back last evening.
Last week, the court found Nyong’o and Nyogoy guilty of disobeying court orders directing them to share their father’s multi-million shilling estate with their nephews.
The orders issued in October 11 last year revoked the administrative certificate that had made the duo the only administrators the estate.
The court had also directed them to present documents that show they have opened an account in the name of their father’s estate beginning July 9, 2014.

Nyongo’s nephews, Geoffrey Omondi and Kenneth Odhiambo, had asked the court to have their families included in the list of beneficiaries.

Sought warrant

However, Rodgers Mugumya the lawyer representing Omondi and Odhiambo, sought a warrant of arrest against the county chief and his sister for failing to appear in court for their sentencing.
He accused them of engaging in delay tactics. He said the issue of their travel did not come up when the ruling on the contempt was delivered.
“We do pray for a warrant of arrest to be issued against the two. They had already been found guilty of contempt,” said Mugumya.
