Judge orders the Odingas to settle case outside Court
A Judge has given Ida Odinga and her daughter in-law Lwam Bekele until November 27 to settle a succession dispute out of court. Appearing before Justice Aggrey Muchelule on Wednesday, parties said they had been holding discussions with the intention of settling the matter.
The family is embroiled in a dispute in a dispute after the Odinga’s accused Ms Lwam, widow of their son Fidel of sidelining the twins he sired with another woman, Phoebe Akinyi Gweno.
Ida and her daughter Winnie hold that Lwam is aware of the existence of the children but she has chosen to sideline them.
Justice Muchelule in October ordered a DNA test to establish the children’s paternity but they are yet to be conducted.
