Can I inherit from my dad if my mom was his mpango wa kando?
My mom died when I was very young and I never knew my dad. One day however I received a letter from a man introducing himself as my dad who said he lived in Kitale. He said he was sorry for not being in my life and asked me to go see him soon. Unfortunately before I could travel, he passed away and instead I met his family when I went for his matanga. My dad was a wealthy landowner and businessman who was survived by a widow and several children older than me. When I told them who I was, they insulted me as a gold-digger and a mtoto wa mpango wa kando and told me I should not dream of getting even a cent from his estate. Later I heard that they had gone to court and were allowed to share his property but they never gave me a cent. Does it mean that just because I’m the daughter of his mpango wa kando, they can leave me out of the inheritance. Can I challenge that now that they’ve already divided the property?
