SUCCESSION CAUSE NO. 362 OF 2001
I have considered the affidavit evidence. The main ground argued in support of the application is that a grant of letters of administration intestate in respect of the estate of Migwi Mariga alias Migui Mariga alias Thui Mariga, deceased was issued in the joint names of Joyce Wanjugu Migwi and Mugure Migwi on 8th November 1990. The duo died before completing the administration of the estate hence the grant has become useless and inoperative. The applicants aver that upon the demise of the administratrixes the estate has remained unadministered. I have perused the affidavit plus the attached annextures and it is apparent that Joyce Wanjugu Migwi died on 21st May 1999 while Mugure Migwi died on 25th April 1995. Both died before the grant was confirmed. The duo were the widows of the deceased. The applicants herein aver that they are the only surviving beneficiaries of the estate. I have perused the affidavit of Joyce Wanjugu sworn on 21st September 1989 filed in support of the petition of letters of administration intestate. In that affidavit the following were named as surviving the deceased:
Dated and delivered this 8th day of April 2011.
In open court in the absence of parties with notice.
