Three move to court to stop the burial of Eldoret businessman Jackson Kibor

Three people, two men and a woman, have filed a lawsuit in court to prevent the 88-year-old Mzee Jackson Kibor from being buried on April 1. Kibor, a businessman and politician, died in Eldoret two weeks ago. The three have petitioned the court to have the funeral postponed because they want to be acknowledged as his legal offspring.They want to be included in the funeral arrangements. Albert E Kibor, Elizabeth J Koskei, and Joseph K Misoi are requesting that the court issue an order allowing them to fully participate in their father’s burial arrangements. They’ve filed a certificate of urgency in the case.

Noami Wairimu, the main magistrate of Eldoret, heard the case.Kibor’s younger wife Eunitah Chelimo Kibor, as well as his sons Philip Kibor and Richard Sile, have been sued. They seek a temporary injunction issued by the court to prevent the deceased’s family from removing and disposing of the body. Kibor’s body was to be transferred tomorrow from the Eldoret hospital mortuary in preparation for burial on Friday. “We are praying this court to enjoin the defendants/respondents, by themselves, their relatives, agents, family members, or anyone else, from removing and disposing of the remains of Jackson Kiprotich Kibor till the hearing and determination of the matter,” the application stated.

They also want an order for DNA samples to be taken from the deceased and from them for examination and comparison in order to verify paternity. Mr Albert Elondanga Kibor says in his supporting affidavit that the deceased had an intimate contact with his mother Jane Elondanga during a polygamous marriage in 1978, and that he was sired in that relationship. He told the court that the dead recognized him as his biological son, that they engaged at social and family gatherings on multiple occasions, and that he was present at his bedside when he died.
