Uhuru’s ticket to State House worth KES 60.5M

13 August 2014, 12:24

Nairobi - Daly and Figgs Advocates, a law firm that successfully defended President Uhuru Kenyatta in a suit that challenged his eligibility to vie for presidency last year is demanding KES 60.5 million compensation.

The suit had been filed by three NGOs; International Centre for Policy and Conflict (ICPC), Kenya Human Rights Commission (KHRC) and International Commission of Jurists (ICJ) Kenya who wanted President Kenyatta and his deputy William Ruto barred from the race following the confirmation of their charges at the International Criminal Court.

Daly and Figgs Advocates say they spent a lot of time preparing for the cases and that each of the three NGOs pay KES 20 million and another KES 338,000 be shared among them, The Standard reports.

The money is in addition to another KES 76.8 million demanded from the same organisations by three law firms that defended the electoral commission in the same cases.

However, the NGOs are opposed to the payment of the bills saying the cases were filed in public interest.
