Pastor Warns Lizzie Wanyoike’s Children Against Fighting Over Multi-Billions Properties Left Behind

On Tuesday, a stern warning was delivered to Antony Wanyoike, Stella Njoroge, and Eric Kariuki, the three children of the late Lizzie Muthoni Wanyoike, cautioning them against engaging in battles over the substantial inheritance left behind by their mother, who succumbed to Fallopian tube cancer on January 14, 2024.

The warning was issued during the funeral service of Mrs. Wanyoike, a distinguished investor and founder of the Nairobi Institute of Technology and Business Studies and Emory Restaurant. The clergy, led by Bishop Julius Njuguna of the Thika Diocese and Joel Waweru of Nairobi, expressed their disappointment at the prevailing trend of children entangled in property disputes left by their parents, describing it as disheartening.

Bishop Waweru, in his sermon, specifically cautioned the children against initiating legal battles over the inheritance, stating that such actions would result in their late mother’s hard-earned resources being drained by lawyers. He emphasized the clergy’s intention to closely monitor the handling of the significant investments made by Mrs. Wanyoike.

Aside from the Nairobi Institute of Technology and Business Studies and Emory Restaurant, the late Mrs. Wanyoike was also the proprietor of various primary and secondary schools, engaged in the stock market, operated the Lizzie Wanyoike Foundation, and had investments in the real estate sector.

Bishop Waweru urged the children to adhere to their mother’s values, emphasizing her generosity towards the less fortunate and her support for numerous individuals through her professional expertise. He advised them to uphold her ethical standards and implement her guidance among themselves, without favoring one over the other.

Concluding his address, Bishop Waweru urged the children to preserve Mrs. Wanyoike’s legacy as an outstanding figure in the country and encouraged them to plan how her profile could continue to inspire future generations.

In addition, he touched on the prevalent issue of corruption in Kenya, highlighting the necessity of confronting it for the country to achieve prosperity. Bishop Waweru revealed that Mrs. Wanyoike had faced encounters with corrupt tax officials who attempted to deceive and threaten her, but she resiliently resisted their schemes. The clergy warned the children to be vigilant against the cunning, arrogance, and cruelty of corrupt individuals, assuring them that Mrs. Wanyoike had many friends willing to assist in challenging situations.
