A court in Tanzania invalidated a will that was left behind by late Tanzanian billionaire Reginald Mengi.

The Will had stated that the deceased estate worth milions of dollars to be owned by his latest spouse Jacquelin Ntuyabaliwe a former model and singer and his two twin sons.

This was after four family members of the late Mr. Mengi including his eldest son in his first marriage filed a petition challenging the will.

As reported by The Citizen, the petitioners argued that the document was not sealed and the signature appended did not resemble the late Mengi’s usual signature. They also argued that non of the late billionaire’s wives or relatives were witnesses to the will.

Other arguments put across were that due to late Mr. Mengi’s ill health in his last years, he was not in a position to draw such a will and not including his other children and other relatives according to Chagga tradition.

The court agreed with these arguments heance invalidated the will.
