A woman from Narok has been murdered in cold blood over a property feud, ten years after her husband suffered the same fate.
Lilian Reteti, her son Salaton and a family friend had just finished having supper with a friend at their house in Sojo village, Sikawa sub-location, Narok when they were ambushed by three armed men.
Daily Nation reports they were ordered by the gruff-looking men to lie flat on the floor and put their hands on their heads in the Wednesday, November 2, incident. All did, except Reteti who demanded to know what was happening.

The three assailants bound her son with a rope and dragged the 56-year-old woman who was bleeding heavily on the arm from a machete cut away.
Two of the attackers wanted to kill her son but one refused and the three got into a heated argument then left. The two survivors raised alarm and the entire village started searching for the older woman.
They found Reteti’s mutilated body six kilometres from her house in Sojo. The matter was reported at Enoosaren Police Station under OB number 24/02/11/2022. The body is lying at St Teresa’s hospital mortuary in Kilgoris for post-mortem.
It turns out that on March 13, Reteti, who feared for her life, wrote and signed in her notebook the names of two people she believed were the prime suspects in her husband’s death in 2010.

Now her orphaned children are ill at ease because they believe their mother’s death is connected to a property tussle pitting her against their late father’s brother and their stepmother.
The family owns a 100-acre farm that is currently valued at KSh200 million.
William Sankei Momboshi was killed in cold blood on November 10, 2010, at his farmhouse in Masurura.
According to his son Kelvin Momboshi, 28, his father was sprayed with bullets when he left their house at night to check on what had caused his motorcycle to move.
The commotion was targeted at getting him out of the house where his killers lay in ambush.

Twelve years later his brother saw their mum being dragged out of the house to be executed.
After their father’s death, a battle for the land ensued and the matter was taken to court where their stepmother Esther Magiro and paternal uncle, Samwel Momboshi, applied for letters of administration for their father’s estate.
According to the two, the first widow, Reteti, had refused to renounce or apply for representation in an earlier succession case in 2013.
However, this was resolved when the two widows jointly applied for the grant of letters of administration, which was granted on March 10, 2015.
In the application, Magiro listed Reteti, herself, and their children as beneficiaries of the estate.
The property of the deceased included communal land at Masurura, plot number 52, Sikawa adjudication section, another plot at Kilgoris township, a plot at Osagan Trading Centre, an account in Kenya Commercial Bank and an insurance policy.

Reteti, however, filed an affidavit protesting the application for confirmation of grant, saying Magiro was not entitled to their husband’s property because she had not contributed to its acquisition and had even remarried.
Rereti also contested the inclusion of Magiro’s daughter as a beneficiary, because she was not the biological child of the late husband.
She also protested the inclusion of her brother-in-law Momboshi as a beneficiary, and finally, she said some of her husband’s property had not been disclosed.
The elders proposed that the livestock be shared equally between the two widows, the plots at Masurura and Sikawa, which had not been demarcated, be subdivided equally and that a plot within Kilgoris be given to Reteti.
The plot at Osagam Trading Centre awaiting demarcation was to be shared equally between the two wives upon confirmation from the county council. The money in the bank account was also to be shared equally.

Magiro was to get a plot of land while Reteti got another. The elders then concluded that all the other farms should be shared equally between the two widows. Reteti, however, opposed the elders’ proposal.
The investigating officer working on the case confirmed that the motive behind Reteti’s death was the family land and property, adding that the police were piecing together evidence to lead them to the suspects.
