Succession Cause No. 1721 of 2000

High Court at Nairobi

W. Musyoka, J

March 21, 2018.

Reported by Kakai Toili

 

Evidence Law – evidence – witnesses – role of witnesses – where the validity of a will was in question - what was the role of witnesses in succession matters where the validity of a will was in question

Law of Succession - probate and administration – application for grant of letters of administration – revocation of grant of letters of administration – requirements for a grant of letters of administration to be revoked – obtaining grant of letters of administration in a defective proceeding - whether a grant of representation could be revoked on grounds that it was obtained in defective proceedings - Law of Succession Act, section 76

Law of Succession –probate and administration - wills – making of wills – requirements – sound mind - tests required to establish that a Testator was of sound mind - what were the tests required to establish that a Testator was of sound mind while making a will

Evidence Law – burden of proof – burden of proof in succession matters - who bore the burden of proof in succession matters – Law of Succession Act, section 5 (4)

Brief Facts:

The Deceased’s wife in her capacity as widow of the Deceased lodged a petition in the Subordinate Court for a grant of letters of administration intestate. In the Petition the Deceased was said to have died intestate and to have been survived by 2 widows and 13 children. The Deceased’s wife further lodged a petition for limited grant of probate in the same cause and averred that the Deceased had died testate having made a valid will dated July 21, 1991. The survivors listed were the same as those in the Petition in intestacy. A grant of letters of administration with written will annexed was and later confirmed made by the Subordinate Court at Thika.

The Applicant, who was one of the Deceased’s children filed the instant Application, seeking revocation of the grant made in the Trial Court on the grounds that the Petition in the Subordinate Court had been initiated without the knowledge and involvement of him and his siblings and alleged that the will the basis of the Petition in the Subordinate Court was invalid for it was made when the Deceased was not of sound mind and was procured by fraud or coercion or importunity.

Issues:

  1. What was the role of witnesses in succession matter where the validity of a will was in question?
  2. What were the tests required to establish that a Testator was of sound mind while making a will?
  3. Who bore the burden of proof in succession matters?
  4. Whether a grant of representation could be revoked on grounds that it was obtained in defective proceedings.

Relevant Provisions of the Law:

Law of Succession Act

Section 5

  1. Subject to the provisions of This Part and Part III, any person who is sound of mind and not a minor may dispose of all or any of his free property by will, and may thereby make any disposition by reference to any secular or religious law that he chooses.
  2. Any person making or purporting to make a will shall be deemed to be of sound mind for the purpose of this section unless he is, at the time of executing the will, in such a state of mind, whether arising from mental or physical illness, drunkenness, or from any other cause, as not to know what he was doing.
  3. The burden of proof that a testator was, at the time he made any will, not of sound mind, shall be upon the person who so alleges.

Section 11

No written will shall be valid unless-

  1. The testator has signed or affixed his mark to the will, or it has been signed by some other person in the presence and by the direction of the testator;
  2. The signature or mark of the testator, or the signature of the person signing for him, is so placed that it shall appear that it was intended thereby to give effect to the writing as a will;
  3. The will is attested by two or more competent witnesses, each of whom must have seen the testator sign   or affix his mark to the will, or have seen some other person sign the will, in the presence and by the direction of the testator, or have received from the testator a personal acknowledgement of his signature or mark , or of the signature of that other person, and each of the witnesses must sign the will in the presence of the testator , but it shall not be necessary that more than one witness be present at the same time, and no particular form of attestation shall be necessary.’

Held:

  1. The law on validity of written wills and testaments was stated in sections 5, 7 and 11 of the Law of Succession Act (the Act). Section 5 dealt with the capacity of the maker of the will. There was conflicting evidence as to the Deceased’s state when the will was made, a day before the he was admitted in hospital with multiple myeloma. The Deceased was not a minor, he suffered no disability with respect to age. What needed to be determined was whether he was of a disposing mind.
  2. According to section 5(3) of the Act, a disposing mind was that of a person who at the time of executing their will knew what they were doing. A person who on account of mental illness or physical illness or drunkenness, signed a will while in that state of mind was deemed to have lacked a disposing mind for he would not know what he would be doing. According to section 5(4) of the Act, it was up to the person alleging lack of such a mind to prove it. The side that bore burden of establishing the lack of soundness of mind on the part of the Deceased at the time he allegedly made the will was with the Applicants.
  3. A testator had to, at the material time of making a will know what he was in fact doing, disposing of his assets to the persons that he was obligated in law to dispose it of to. He had to know that he was making a will and for that purpose. A Testator had to be able to know or remember the assets that he was to distribute and the persons who in law were entitled to such distribution. That meant that a person who drew or signed a document purporting it to be a will yet not knowing what he was doing, in terms of not knowing that he was disposing of his property by will was said to lack a sound disposing mind. That had to also apply to a person who, while purporting to dispose of property by will, could not recall the persons that he was bliged legally to provide for.
  4. The Applicant’s 2nd witness attended to the Deceased and was the one who made the diagnosis that facilitated his admission. He could therefore speak authoritatively on the general state of health, both physical and mental, of the Deceased as at the material time. The evidence raised serious doubts as to the capacity of the Deceased to make a valid will on July 22, 1991. However, the will was allegedly made on July 21, 1991. It was possible that the Deceased was in two different states of mind on the two distinct dates. The Deceased knew what he was doing on July 21, 1991. The events of July 22, 1991 should not have been used as a basis to assess the mental state that the Deceased was in on July 21, 1991.
  5.  Section 11 of the Act dealt with the law relating to the making of written wills, specifically it related to the formalities. The original document that had been probated as the will of the Deceased was in the native language of the Deceased, Kikuyu. It was dated July 21, 1991 and bore three signatures at its foot. On the face of it, it appeared to be a testamentary statement to the extent that it disposed of property. It bore three signatures. It was however not indicated who the three signatories were but it was presumed that it was the Deceased and his two witnesses.
  6. It was the responsibility of he who alleged that the Deceased did not sign it to prove that allegation. It was up to the Applicant to establish that the Deceased did not sign the document or that none of the signatures on the document were his or that even if one of them looked like his it was forged. The Applicant and his uncle merely said that the signature on the will alleged to be the Deceased’s was not his, beyond that no evidence was adduced to demonstrate that it was not the signature of the Deceased.
  7. The Respondent did not see the attesting witnesses come home the day that the will was allegedly made and she did not even call them to shed light on the making of the will, yet that was their principal role as such. It was up to the propounder of the will to answer the questions as to when the will could have possibly been made on July 21, 1991, who was present apart from the Deceased, whether the Deceased prepared it all on his own and when the attesting witnesses signed the will.
  8. No evidence was placed before the Court to support the contention that the will was procured by the Respondent through undue influence. Therefore the Court did not seek to define undue influence or to analyze the material before it to ascertain whether or not there was undue influence. He who alleges must prove. The Applicant should have demonstrated that the Respondent infact forced or coerced or exerted pressure in some way on the Deceased so as to make the will in the manner that he did. He did not make any effort to do so.
  9. The Applicant’s case appeared to have been built on the rather unhappy relationship that was there between his mother and the Deceased and the rather cozy relationship between the Respondent and the Deceased which persisted till the Deceased’s demise. It appeared that that bad blood had an influence in the way the Deceased distributed his estate in the purported will as the Respondent and her side of the family appeared to benefit the most from it but there was no positive evidence of exercise of undue influence.
  10. Before the Court was a document which purportedly bore a signature of the Deceased supported by other signatures. However, the circumstances of the making of the said document was shrouded in mystery as no one appeared to have been present when the will was made, as no one was presented as having been present when the will was made and there was no evidence as to whether the attesting witnesses appended their signatures in the presence of the Deceased or after he had acknowledged his signature to them. The role of witnesses was to authenticate the making of the will as and when the fact of its making was called into question. They come forward to testify as to having been present at the making of the will or to the acknowledgment by the Deceased of his signature on the document before they appended their signatures.
  11. There was no proof that the Deceased made the will in question. It was allegedly made on a day when the Deceased had people all around him as he was unwell, yet no one saw him make it, the witnesses never came to his home that day and he did not himself talk about it. The Deceased did not make the will on record, it was not valid and ought not to have provided basis for the proceedings conducted in the Subordinate Court.
  12.  According to section 76 of the Act, a grant of representation was revocable on grounds that it was obtained in defective proceedings or that there was misrepresentation of facts among others. The proceedings in the Subordinate Court were mounted on a will that was invalid, the said proceedings were defective and a nullity.

Application allowed

  1. The Grant made in Thika SPMCSC No. 32 of 1994 revoked and all consequential orders founded on the said Grant nullified.
  2. The Court file in Thika SPMCSC No. 32 of 1994 be returned to the registry of the Thika Chief Magistrate’s Court with directions that the matter of the estate of the Deceased start de novo on the understanding that the Deceased had died intestate.
  3. All High Court causes relating to the said estate were spent and the relevant files be closed.
  4. Each party to bear its own costs.
