Court allows Jaguar’s father to auction water company over Sh672k compensation
A court has allowed Starehe MP Charles Njagua’s father, David Kanyi, to auction property of a water company that refused to compensate him Sh672,000.
Nyeri Senior Principal Magistrate Phillip Mutua dismissed application for temporary injunction filed by Nyeri water and sewerage company (Nyewasco) seeking to stop Mr Kanyi from inviting auctioneers to attach and sell its property.
The water company had in September 2017 been directed by a court to pay Mr Kanyi Sh672,000 as compensation after he fell and broke his leg in a manhole owned by the corporation.
The magistrate found that the water company had neglected the two-foot deep manhole in Nyeri town and failed to erect warning signs.
Through lawyer Muhoho Gichimu, Mr Kanyi told the court that the incident occurred on October 1, 2008 at 7.30pm behind Homage building.
