A case in which a city businessman is seeking over Ksh10 million from former Cabinet Minister and veteran Maasai politician John Keen‘s daughter, over damage to property and forceful eviction, will be heard on the on July 26 this year.
The trader, namely Christopher Mbidyo Mulwa, argues that in 2007 he entered an agreement with Pamela Soila Keen in which Soila was to hand over a shop known as Studio Plaza at the city center to the businessman.
The contract was to run for five years but Mbidyo claims Soila evicted him in 2009 from the business premises in the same month without reasonable cause.
Through lawyer, William Kipkorir Arusei, Mbindyo claims that at the time of causing the damage, Soila was aware that his lease had not yet expired; and that he still had three years remaining in his lease.
Mbidyo claims he had not been given any notice to vacate.
The businessman alleges that the application by Soila lacks merit, adding that it consists of mere denials and is only calculated at prejudicing, embarrassing or delaying his case.
He is demanding Ksh10 million – being the value of goods he lost – and damages for breach of contract.
However, Pamela Soila Keen wants the case filed by Christopher Mbindyo dismissed.
Soila argues that the suit should be dismissed as it was filed six years after the alleged incident.
Pamela Soila Keen, Studio plaza Limited and Naivanoi African Creations are the key respondents in the suit filed by businessman Christopher Mbindyo Mulwa.
