Former KDF officers seek over KES 51M compensation

28 February 2014, 08:02 Millicent Kawii

Nairobi - Six former Kenya Defence Forces officers are seeking over KES 51 million compensation for unlawful arrest and detention by the 82 Air force.

Stephen Gaithi Njihia, Rogers Kimoso Righa, Benson Sokio Lekalau, Hussein Ambrose Mastila, Samuel Ndungu Gatua and Frederick Wafula Obetele who have sued the Attorney General, attribute their tribulations to a decision passed by the alleged illegal government owned entity.

They claim that the illegal entity summoned a court martial dubbed 82 Air Force which unlawfully and without due process tried, convicted, sentenced and acquitted each of them.

“We were unlawfully detained and got sacked by an illegal entity that was under the general command of the then Chief General Staff of KDF, we were illegally arrested, kept in solitary confinement, interrogated, tortured and unilaterally discharged from KDF by an illegal entity,” they said in their petition filed through the firm of Ali and Company Advocates.

Njihia seeks KES 7,992, 770, Righa KES 9, 413,542, Lekalau KES 4, 541,261, KES Mastila KES 17,578, 202, Gatua KES 6, 503,271 and Obetele KES 5,372,856 amounting to KES 51, 101,902.

The six claim that the alleged sum would have amounted to what they would have separately earned till their retirement by 2015.

The ex-service men allege that by virtue of their discharge from the forces, they have never been paid any form of benefits or pension as well as secure meaningful jobs thereafter due to interference by security agencies.

They further allege that the failure by KDF to pay them contravened their economic and social rights.

The six ex-service men claim they were arrested in different towns between August 1, 1982 and March 30, 1983 but however went through similar physical and psychological torture before their release at different time frame.

High Court judge Mumbi Ngugi directed that the case be mentioned on April 2.
