Naivas supermarket - the biggest supermarket in kenyaThe late billionaire Peter Mukuha Kago, founder of the Naivas supermarket chain, left behind a will that reveals his wishes for the distribution of his wealth.

Mr. Mukuha passed away on May 6, 2010, leaving a substantial estate that included significant shares in Naivas Limited, the company operating Naivas supermarkets.

His nine surviving children had been engaged in legal disputes over the estate since 2012.

On October 6, 2016, Simon Gashwe, one of Mukuha’s sons, was appointed the administrator of the estate. However, Gashwe passed away on August 26, 2019, leaving the administration of the estate in an unresolved state.

In his recent ruling, Justice Nyaga noted that the estate administration was granted to siblings David Kimani Mukuha and Grace Wambui Mukuha.
