Disgraced and beaten Magerer sues for damages
11 February 2015, 18:01
Nairobi - Former ODM Executive Director Magerer Lang'at has sued for damages pertaining to his vicious manhandling during a party function in October.
Magerer was manhandled by a group of Members of County Assemblies MCA's last year during an Executive Committee meeting and thrown out of the precincts.
He was allegedly thrown out by the MCA's who accused him of being a traitor and suggesting that the party had lost direction and was dying.
After the incident, he was forced to resign from the party.
In an application to the High Court Wednesday, Magerer sued the 12 MCA's who took part in his expulsion, the office of the Director of Public Prosecutions as well as the Inspector General of Police.
He accused the MCA's of assault, while the latter have been sued for not taking any action on the perpetrators of the violence as they are supposed to by law.
Justice Weldon Korir called on Magerer to first serve the respondents with the suit before arranging for a hearing date for the case.
Magerer did not suffer any known physical injuries but in the case files, he claimed that the incident had embarrassed him and ruined his reputation as a well known public personality.
