The state’s obnoxious absence in Ksh2 billion compensation case will now be tolerated for a further week, a trial court has ruled.

In the case, a  Nairobi-based manufacturer  seeking compensation following the ban on the use of plastic bags, Hi-Plast limited, now wants summary judgement, for the sole reason that the state did not file a defence against his  claims for lost business.

Hi-Plast has filed submissions as directed by court in the build up to the judgement.

Justice Makau last time raised concern over the AG’s failure to file a defence for the suit and serve Hi-Plast.

The director of the company, Mahesh Dodhia says the ban has caused him losses, having invested heavily in machinery and raw materials as well as defaulted on loan repayments.
