Some members of the family of the Late Johnathan Moi have question why one of his widows is fundraising money to get Sh 2.5 million to take her son for surgery.

Johnathan, one of the sons of the late Kenyan President Daniel Moi passed away in 2019 and left his property to his widows.

The concerned family members accuse the widow, Faith Nyambura Moi, of using the plight to embarrass the Moi family.

According to the widow, she is seeking Sh 2.5 million to pay gor surgery to have cysts removed from her son’s jaw.

The family members who wished to remain anonymous also questioned whether Nyambura has reached out to the larger family before resorting to fundraising.

It is alleged that the late Johnathan, who was a rally driver left her cars and houses.

“JT left some properties to her including cars. Why can’t she dispose them off and use the proceeds to cater for the medication?” One questioned.

The members also questioned why Nyambura is pushing for the succession cause of the late President and not her late husband’s case where she and her children are beneficiaries.

According to Nyambura, the Moi’s family has refused to help her with her son’s treatment yet the former President left a part of his estate to his grandchildren.

However, the source claims the late President said that only his grandchildren should benefit from the estate and the beneficiaries should be subjected to a DNA test.

A succession case is pending before the High Court and members had been tasked with identifying Johnathan Moi’s property.

The court had in 2023 listed 19 beneficiaries of the estate of Johnathan’s estate However, more people surfaced after his death.

The judge had also directed each widow- Sylvia, Beatrice and Faith Moi, to pick a representative to act as administrators of the estate, which they did.

Johnathan’s first wife- Sylvia was initially granted a temporary order to administer the estate but the order was limited to offsetting bills and preserving the estate until the court made a final determination on the matter.
