Widow clashes with late husband's ex-wife over estate

Widow clashes with late husband's ex-wife over estate
Published: 15 December 2017 (80 Views)
A BULAWAYO-BASED widow has accused her late husband's former wife of breaching their estate management agreement in which the latter was to sell a house left in her custody and distribute 50% of the proceeds among the deceased's seven children.

Beatrice Mlambo got married to the late Elliot Muzi Mlambo on July 1, 1994 after he divorced Elizabeth Mlambo and part of the agreement in their divorce was that she would remain at the house in Northend, Bulawayo.

Mlambo died in 1999 five years after marrying Beatrice and the two had two children. He also had one child outside of marriage and four with Elizabeth. According to first and final liquidation distribution account in the estate of Mlambo, the house was evaluated and proved to be worth $40 000. The agreement signed by the executor of the estate Ester Kelli on November 27, 2017, in accordance with the court order dated April 14, 2011 when Mlambo divorced Elizabeth, was that the house would be sold and 50% of the money obtained shared among all his children with each one of them expected to get $2 333,34.

Beatrice said Elizabeth was not forthcoming on the issue.

"The children want to use the money to go to school, I am not able to send them to school, but it appears my late husband's former wife is not forthcoming," she said. "We signed an agreement on November 27 this year for the distribution of the proceeds from the house sale, but nothing has been given to my children so far."

On December 4 this year, Moshel Executor and Trust wrote to the deputy Master of the High Court advising him that Elizabeth's lawyer communicated to them and were advised that she should pay the money, but she had not done so.

On the same day Elizabeth's lawyers from Web Low and Barry advised Beatrice through a letter that the responsible lawyer Josphat Tshuma was away on leave and would return in January next year.

Beatrice is appealing for a speedy payment of the money.
