Object of the Bill

The Succession Act" Cap.26l provides for equal dishibution of estates ofdeceased parents amongst all the children, regardless ofthe age or the level of dependency on the deceased at the time of death. Increasingly, many estates have adult and minor beneficiaries who have different levels of dependency and in some instances there are children who are above 18 years but still in school. The equal distribution of the property amongst all the beneficiaries is therefore not equitable where there are adult beneficiaries on the one hand, school-going children and dependant relatives on the other hand.
