Teach me to be humble, oh Lord.

She is always in Church, wearing faded jeans, an old T-shirt and slippers. She comes to clean and arrange the seats, decorate and clean the pulpit whenever it is dirty.

For six years, she never missed a single Saturday coming to clean the Church.

One Saturday, a young man walked into the Church while she was still arranging the chairs. He went and sat down watching as the lady was working.

He was impressed that a lady who looked quite beautiful even in the old clothes and a scarf over her hair could be so dedicated to her work in Church. He thought within himself that this was an unfortunate lady who probably had no one take care of her schooling and could probably be an orange seller or some petty trader struggling to make ends meet at the market stall. He watched and within his heart felt he knew what God wanted him to do. When he had felt a compulsion to come very early to Church, he had not understood but now he thought he did.

He went back to his car and took out some cash. When the lady finished her work and was about leaving, he called her and commended her for her service and gave her the notes.

She respectfully declined the notes but he insisted pressing it into her hands. He asked if she lived close so he could go drop her.

She thanked him and told him that her car was outside, but he did not understand what she had just said. He walked her out determined to find out all he could about this lady that God wanted him to help change her level.

They walked out of the Church with him telling her where he worked and how God had asked him to come early to Church that day and how he believed God is directing him to help make a big difference in her life. He was so busy talking he had not realized they had walked directly to a BMW X6 2019 limited Edition parked under trees in the parking lot.

The car made his one year old Benz look like a worn out wheelbarrow.

The lady opened the driver’s door stepped in and handed over her card to the man and said, “I believe God sent you here for a purpose, but I do not think it was to change my level, most likely it was to change yours.”

I am tempted to say it took a forklift to shut the young man’s mouth and move him from the place he was glued to as the lady drove off. God had a purpose for bringing him to Church that morning and that purpose was to teach him humility which he learned well.

Many times we think so highly of ourselves that where God sends us to learn we go trying to teach. We always imagine ourselves as teachers, never as students.

Oh, teach us to be humble, Lord.

Succession: Biwott was either not as wealthy, or shared out a majority of his assets before death

Published

on

Former powerful Cabinet minister Nicholas Biwott had for decades been one of Kenya’s biggest mysteries such that, when he died in July 2017, many felt his net worth was more than the Sh1.4 billion that was revealed.

It is believed he had a stake in over 40 companies, among them Kenol Kobil, Sisibo Tea Factory, HZ Construction and Air Kenya.

But his succession has revealed that Mr Biwott was either not as wealthy as perceived, or perhaps shared out a majority of his assets before death.

Nearly three years after his demise, even the Sh1.4 billion risks being depleted owing to debt claims that are now at the centre of court battles in Nairobi and Eldoret.

The claims indicate that Biwott may have suffered a cash crunch in his final years as the former minister allegedly died before paying debts worth millions of shillings.

The latest claim has been made by lawyer Ahmed Adan, who alleges he lent Biwott Sh71 million between October, 2014 and May, 2015.

The claims could leave Biwott’s net worth at Sh500 million, or less.

On December 20, 2017, the executors of his will — lawyers Desterio Oyatsi, Hamish Keith, and Yaya Towers managing director Elisabeth Klem — asked anyone claiming money from the deceased to come forward with evidence.

Claims rejected

The executors rejected three claims that have now become the subject of court proceedings.

Eldoret-based real estate baron Barnabas Arap Kiprono, Biwott’s banker Rosemary Kamene Nzeki and Mr Adan all had their claims rejected. They now want the court to intervene.

Mr Kiprono’s claim for nearly Sh1 billion is pending determination at the Eldoret High Court. He claims to have lent Biwott Sh382 million in cash and bank transfers to enable him to settle some debts and boost some of his businesses.

The businessman claims that interest on his loans to Biwott have pushed the total debt to nearly Sh1 billion.

Ms Nzeki says she handled Biwott’s Barclays Bank account for years and the same had pending salaries of Sh1.6 million for the period covering January-June, 2017.

The banker also loaned Biwott Sh762,600 and furnished the court with two undated cheques to prove her claim.

On March 16, 2018, Mr Adan lodged his claim with the three executors but was denied any payment. He now wants the Sh71 million with interest paid.

Mr Adan’s claim has sparked off a fight that could get dirty, as the executors now accuse the lawyer of trying to alter sales proceeds paid to Biwott into a loan.

The lawyer says he loaned Biwott the funds via bank transfers from Barclays through Wetangula, Adan & Company Advocates.

Legitimate explanations

But the executors argue that the banking slips Mr Adan produced as evidence of the loans, only indicate that the law firm remitted the money to Biwott as “sale proceeds and purchase price deposits”.

“It is an abuse of the court process for Mr Adan to bring this action, alleging that he paid the said sums of money as a loan to Mr Biwott. Mr Adan’s claim is false and an abuse of the court process,” the executors stated.

Mr Adan argues that the executors have not given any evidence that the monies paid to Biwott were either sale proceeds or deposits for purchases.

High Court judge Margaret Muigai has refused to strike out the executors’ defence as requested by Mr Adan.

The judge has ruled that it is urgent to confirm, through a trial, whether there is indeed a loan or not.

“The defence raises real issues for trial and cannot be struck off at this stage … There could be other plausible and legitimate explanations of these funds transfer,” the judge ruled.
