Real estate magnate Gerishon Kirima is dead

Posted by Administrator on December 29, 2010

NAIROBI, Kenya, Dec 29 – Real estate business magnate Gerishon Kirima is dead.

The controversial businessman passed on Tuesday at a South African hospital after a week of coma according to family sources.

The former Member of Parliament and Assistant Minister died at the age of 88.

His death comes at a time when members of his extended family are in a big tussle over control of his multi million shillings estate.

Drama pitting the Kirima family started about five months ago when his daughters from the first wife stormed his home in Kitisuru and demanded that he be taken to hospital.

After two weeks of unsuccessful attempts, they engaged top government officials and a cabinet minister who helped get Kirima taken to the Nairobi Hospital.

Once at the hospital, members of Kirima’s first wife sealed all the entries to the hospital to block Kirima’s third wife Teresia, son and daughters from visiting him.

A few days later, Mrs Teresia moved to court where she sought orders to visit her husband but by the time she went to serve the hospital, Mr Kirima had already been flown out to the United Kingdom for treatment.

The court cases are still pending.

More details to follow….
