The High Court on Wednesday ruled that the children born by a widow nine months after husband’s death cannot inherit property.

According to the High Court these children will not be entitled to inherit the share of the late husband’s property.

On February 6, 2019, the Environment and Lands Court in Nyeri ruled that married women can also inherit the properties of their fathers and cannot be excluded during distribution.

In Kenya, the Law of Succession Act, which was passed by Parliament in 1972 provides guidelines on property inheritance but has undergone amendments over the years in accordance with different court rulings.
