Top city lawyer injures female guard in a scuffle over parking space – PHOTOS

Former Law Society of Kenya executive officer Apollo Mboya was on Friday morning involved in a scuffle with a security guard at Kibera law courts.

The female security guard sustained injuries on her leg during the 8am incident as Mr Mboya allegedly forced his way through the court ‘s main gate.

The guard had just opened the gate for a prosecutor to drive in when Mr Mboya arrived driving his car registration number KBH 890T.

The guard informed him that only court officials are allowed to park inside the court’s premises.

An incensed Mr Mboya jumped out of his car and pushed the gate. The guard who was manning it fell down.

“He then got back to his car and drove inside while hurling nasty words at me,” the guard told Nairobi News.

The slot where Mr Mboya parked his car has a notice limiting parking within the court’s premise to officials only.


A court official summoned Mr Mboya to her chambers to sort out the issue, but the lawyer is said to have been arrogant, accusing the guard “of being old school”.

“The guard indentified by one name Muthoni of Lavington Security was advised to report the incident at Kilimani police station,” the court official told Nairobi News.
