THE late Road Development Agency board chairperson, Willie Nsanda’s father has dragged three administrators to court over his son’s property.
Willie Nsanda senior has sued Andrew Ng’andu, Eustance Kankomba and Andrew Chileshe accusing them of withdrawing money at will and has since asked the Lusaka High Court to order them to produce the full inventory of his late son’s estate and render accounts of administration of the estate.
Mr Nsanda of stand number 2085 WaterFalls Area who has sued together with the deceased’s two daughters Mutale and Febby, suing in her capacity as legal custodian of the late’s eight year old daughter, Mwila, also wanted the court to remove the three as administrators of the estate.
Mr Nsanda has contended that he was retired and a beneficiary to the estate of his late son by virtue of having been the biological father while Febby was suing in her capacity as the mother and legal guardian of Mwila.
He said that Mr Ngandu, Mr Kankomba and Mr Chileshe, were the administrators of the estate who were appointed on May 12, this year out of the Probate Registry of the High Court.
Mr Nsanda said that his son died intestate on March 24, this year at Milpark Hospital in South Africa and was survived by him (the father), Mutale, Elizabeth and Mwila.
He said that his son left several properties including shares in private companies and money in bank accounts which the administrators had allegedly refused or failed to give information upon being asked to do so by the beneficiaries.
Mr Nsanda alleged that Mr Ngandu, Mr Kankomba and Mr Chileshe had departed from their duties of administering the estate by interfering with the operations of the companies where the deceased was a shareholder and they have since become signatories and withdrawing money at will.
He said the administrators had lately experienced differences among themselves such that they had failed to administer the estate effectively thereby exposing it to depletion.
“That while my son was alive, I was receiving a stipend for my upkeep from my son and I was actually on payroll from Bells Transport Limited a company my late son was a shareholder. Upon assumption of administratorship the said stipend was stopped,” he said.
He further alleged that the vault containing valuables which was in the custody of the administrators had allegedly gone missing, but recovered by the police after some days under which circumstances they had failed to give meaningful explanation and disclosure of the whereabouts of the content of the vault.
He alleged that one of his granddaughters Elizabeth got possession of the vault and that she took possession of the same by the help of two of the administrators, but the same was recovered from her at Simon Mwansa Kapwepwe Police Post.
