Nyokabi who claims to be of sober mind says that in spite of her report to the police, no actions has been taken against her mother and brother.
Nyokabi on a letter dated September 10, 2020 had accused his two brothers Charles Githii, James Mwai and her mother of intermeddling with the assets of the Estate of their late father HON Kamotho.
She says that on September 6, 202, Githi together with the other brother James Mwai Kamotho instructed a stranger to lock her inside her house where she resides with her mother in Kitusuru.
Since then, she says that together with her daughter, a minor have been unable to leave their house thereby causing her mental anguish and inconvenience. Despite her plea to be freed, they have maintained that they should not be allowed to leave her house.
She says that her tribulations started when she objected their attempt to dispose of the property in Kitsuru.
Nyokabi says the Estate is yet to be administered and despite the family agreeing that the administrators be herself, Charles and Her Mother Eunice Kamotho, they have reneged on the same and fraudulently filed a succession cause in Muranga Law Courts.
