A Kenyan lady by the name Catherine Njeri is set to smile all the way to the bank after court awarded her Shillings 700,000 because of her image.

According to a publication by the Standard, the court ordered Machakos University to pay her the money after the University used her image to do an advertisement without her knowledge.

The source has also indicated that Mrs Njeri, filed the case in court on October 26, 2021, whereby she indicated that her former university used her image to do advertisements with a motive of getting more students to enroll and so to get more money.

After listening to her case, Judge Justice Waringa ordered the university to pay her Sh700,000 for what they did.
