Late Willie Nsanda’s Daughter Drops Out Of School
Late Willie Nsanda’s daughter has sued the administrators of her father’s estate for refusing to pay her school fees and general upkeep.
This is on account that she is not his biological daughter.
The minor, a grade eight pupil at Namununga School has since dropped out of school for failing to pay school fees amounting to K5,700.
She said all efforts to have the administrators come on board to support her and general maintenance of K6, 000 per month have proved futile.
The plaintiff sued Eustace Kankomba and Andrew Kachibe, through her mother, contending that her parents got married on April 1993 and that she was the second born in the subsistence marriage. She is now asking the court to declare that she is Mr. Nsanda’s biological daughter and that she should be allocated or given her share of the estate in line with the Intestate Succession Act Cap 59, including tertiary, medicals and upkeep from the demise of her father.
In her affidavit sworn by her mother, the plaintiff stated that her parents got divorced by the Mufulira local court on July 29, 2002 and that her father continued to maintain her and her older sister and some months before his demise, the late Mr. Nsanda started doubting fathering the plaintiff leading to both parents to undergo DNA tests at Nkanza laboratories and returned a 99.999 percent probability of paternity.
Her mother said even though Mr. Nsanda questioned the DNA profiling results, he still continued supporting her child and paying fees until he died on March 24 this year.
