One of Kenya’s wealthiest and most controversial white families Thursday moved to court to compel a private hospital in which their only heir died while receiving treatment, to furnish them with medical records of the deceased.

Hugh George Cholmondeley, the 5th Lord Delamere, sued MP Shah Hospital and its Social Service league for refusing to provide the family with hospital records of Thomas Patrick Gilbert Cholmondeley.

Tom died on August 17, 2016 while recuperating in the Intensive Care Unit of the said hospital after undergoing an all hip replacement surgery.

However, nearly a year after, the family has been unable to obtain his death certificate, a factor which is putting the expansive Delamere beef and dairy farms in which he was a finance director at risk of intermeddling on matters administration.
