MCAs in trouble for defaulting on attorney's fees

15 February 2016, 14:06 Dareel Eric

Kakamega - A Kakamega-based lawyer has threatened to instigate legal proceedings against two Vihiga MCAs over failure to pay him legal fees totaling to KES 357 550.

The lawyer, Kundu Wesutsa says he represented the two, Chogo Abdallah and Vincent Atsiaya in court after they were ousted from the County Assembly on December 30, 2015.

Chogo wanted the court to reinstate his as the chief whip while Atsiaya wanted his deputy majority whip position back.

In a notice issued to the MCAs, Wesutsa asked the two to pay the legal fees in 30 days.

"Kindly make arrangements to settle this amount of KES 357 550 within a period of 30 days following service upon you of this letter," says the notice.

Wesutsa warned, "Take note that in the event you fail to abide by the above, we shall have the same taxed before the deputy registrar."

When reached for comment, the two were however non committal and dared the lawyer to make good his threat to sue them.

Abdallah said he could not comment on the matter further, noting that he would wait for the lawyer to act.

His colleague, Atsiaya denied seeking the services of the lawyer and said: "I did not sign any contract with any lawyer. Let us meet in court."
