High Court at Mombasa

Succession Cause No 301 of 2014

Edward M Muriithi J

December 16, 2014

Reported by Andrew Halonyere

Brief facts

The petitioners, respectively a widow and a mother-in-law of a deceased Muslim man the subject of the suit, filed two proceedings before the High Court being Succession Probate and Administration Cause, seeking for limited grant and full grant of representation to the estate of deceased.

The interested parties who were respectively, a son and widow of the deceased under first marriage, raised a preliminary objection challenging the jurisdiction of the High Court, and they sought inter-alia an order to strike out the said suits or in the alternative to transfer the suits to the Kadhi’s Court for hearing and determination.

Issues

  1. Whether the High Court has jurisdiction to entertain a matter of succession to the estate of a deceased Muslim.
  2. Whether the High Court can order a transfer of the Succession proceedings to the Kadhi’s Court for hearing and disposal.

Constitutional law – jurisdiction - jurisdiction of the High Court to entertain a matter of succession to the estate of a deceased Muslim – where petitions seeking for full and limited grant of representation to the estate of deceased Muslim were filed before the High Court - right of persons professing Muslim faith to choose to utilize the regular system of adjudication through the High Court – whether the High Court had jurisdiction to entertain the matter – Constitution of Kenya 2010, Article 170.

Words and phrases – definition of submit - give way, resign oneself, yield, cease or abstain from resistance - The Concise Oxford Dictionary

 

Constitution of Kenya 2010

Article 170 Kadhis’ courts

(1)

There shall be a Chief Kadhi and such number, being not fewer than three, of other Kadhis as may be prescribed under an Act of Parliament.

(2)

A person shall not be qualified to be appointed to hold or act in the office of Kadhi unless the person—

(a)

professes the Muslim religion; and

(b)

possesses such knowledge of the Muslim law applicable to any sects of Muslims as qualifies the person, in the opinion of the Judicial Service Commission, to hold a Kadhi’s court.

       

 

(3)

Parliament shall establish Kadhis’ courts, each of which shall have the jurisdiction and powers conferred on it by legislation, subject to clause (5).

(4)

The Chief Kadhi and the other Kadhis, or the Chief Kadhi and such of the other Kadhis (not being fewer than three in number) as may be prescribed under an Act of Parliament, shall each be empowered to hold a Kadhi’s court having jurisdiction within Kenya.

 

(5)

The jurisdiction of a Kadhis’ court shall be limited to the determination of questions of Muslim law relating to personal status, marriage, divorce or inheritance in proceedings in which all the parties profess the Muslim religion and submit to the jurisdiction of the Kadhi’s courts.

 

Held

  1. The primary purpose of the article 170 was to preserve a forum for the resolution of disputes as to personal law matters of Muslims as existed before the Constitution of Kenya 2010 under section 69 of the former Constitution. The Constitution of Kenya 2010, however, recognized and gave effect to the right of Muslims to choose to utilize the regular system of adjudication through the High Court.
  2. The right of choice was consistent with the constitutional values of liberty of the person embodied in the principles of human dignity, equity, social justice, inclusiveness, equality, human rights, non-discrimination and protection of the marginalized under article 10 (2) (b) of the Constitution. To compel all Muslims to subject themselves to the jurisdiction of the Kadhi’s Court would have been contrary to all notions of choice which was the basis of rights and freedoms in the Bill of Rights. Hence the provision for the Muslims to submit, rather than compulsion to subject themselves, to the jurisdiction of the Kadhi’s Court.
  3. The jurisdiction of the High Court in succession matters relating to estates of deceased Muslims was not ousted by sub-article 5 of article 165 as with the matters set out in article 165 (5) (a) and (b) . Moreover, the High Court was the succession court under section 47 of the Law of Succession Act.
  4. Section 47 of the Law of Succession Act made it clear that the High Court had jurisdiction to entertain any application and determine any dispute under the Law of Succession Act. However, by section 48(2) the jurisdiction of the High Court was not exclusive, as Kadhi’s Courts had also jurisdiction to entertain disputes relating to the estate of deceased Muslims.  However, if the High Court assumed jurisdiction to the estate of a deceased Muslim, then by virtue of section 2(3) of the Law of Succession Act, the law applicable in the High Court as to the devolution of the estate was the Muslim law and not the Law of Succession Act.
  5. Profession of Muslim faith was distinct from the necessary ingredient of submission to the jurisdiction of the Kadhi’s Court to deal with the personal law matters of marriage, divorce and inheritance of Muslims. Profession of Islam was not synonymous with submission to the jurisdiction of the Kadhi’s Court.
  6. Muslims have a choice of the forum for determination of their personal law matters and that by the very act of converting to Islam as evidenced by the Certificate of Confessing Islam [Shahada ya Kusilimu], the 1st petitioner had by conduct submitted to the jurisdiction of the Kadhi’s Court.  While all the parties before the Kadhi’s Court had to be Muslims, no party who had not submitted to the jurisdiction was compelled to litigate before that court.  That the 1st Petitioner converted to Islam only satisfied the second ingredient for the jurisdiction of the Kadhi’s Court which had to be complemented by the Petitioner’s choice to submit to the Court.
  7. The requirement for submission to the Jurisdiction of the Kadhi’s Court was an addition by the Constitution of Kenya 2010. The repealed Constitution had under section 69 (3) (d) provided only for appointment to the office of the Chief Kadhi and Kadhis with their jurisdiction being given by the Kadhis’ Courts Act (cap. 11) under section 5. In interpreting article 170 (5) of the Constitution the court had to purposefully give effect to the tenor of the addition of the requirement of submission of the Muslims to the jurisdiction of the Kadhi’s Court by the Constitution of Kenya 2010 by upholding choice of the Court before which to file proceedings of personal nature.
  8. The word ‘submit’ was defined by The Concise Oxford Dictionary as a verb meaning ‘give way, resign oneself, yield, cease or abstain from resistance’.  Accordingly, the right to ‘submit’ had to be taken to contain an opposite inbuilt right to choose ‘not to submit’.  In providing as a prerequisite that the Muslims submit to the jurisdiction of the Kadhi’s Court, the Constitution was upholding the choice that Muslims had traditionally exercised.
  9. In filing the two petitions in the High Court, rather than filing a plaint in the Kadhi’s Court, the petitioner 2nd widow had chosen to approach the High Court and consequently declined to submit within the meaning of article 170 (5) of the Constitution to the jurisdiction of the Kadhi’s Court to hear and determine the matter of the inheritance of the Estate of the deceased.
  10. The High Court had jurisdiction to entertain the application by the Petitioners in the case. The issue of the applicable law would fall for consideration when the court would determine the prayers for administration and distribution of the Estate.

Application declined.  Petitions were to proceed to hearing before the High Court on dates to be fixed in consultation with the counsel for the parties, Interested Parties were to pay costs to the Petitioners.
