She is the current women representative for Kisii County. She is also an advocate of the High Court of Kenya and the Managing Partner in the law firm Ongera and Company.
This piece arises from a Civil suit filed against her in 2017, to be more specific Civil Suit No.4731 of 2017.
The plaintiff, Rosecate Promotions and Suppliers Limited lodged the case through lawyer Jeremy Njenga in which it accuses the politician, who then was a nominated member of the Kenya Senate and was the Senate minority deputy whip.
Keep her word
It is stated in the suit papers that the plaintiff claim against the politician is for the sum of Ksh140,000 on “account of promotional scarves and caps sold and delivered to the defendant at her request and instance on July 2016…”
The plaintiff further avers that it was a term of the supply agreement that the defendant would settle the amount claimed upon her return to Kenya on or about August 5 2016 but she breached the said undertaking as she did not keep her word.
“Inspite of the plaintiff’s demand made and notice of intention to sue having been given, the defendant has failed, refused and/or neglected to settle the amount claimed, ” Njenga told a trial court in Nairobi.
The lawyer said the cause arose in nairobi within the jurisdiction of the trial court and “the plaintiff avers that there exists no previous suit nor any pending suit between the parties herein over the subject matter.”
