Kisumu Governor Anyan'g Nyong'o and his sister Risper Nyagoy have been fined Sh400,000 each in a case involving concerning division of family property.

Justice Tripsisa Cherere on Thursday ruled the amount is to be paid within 30 days or they face one month in jail.

They will further be fined Sh50,000 each month should they continue to be in contempt of court for the next 30 days and in the event they fail to file books of accounts on how the property has been handled.
