It has emerged that the county government of Kisumu will officially be sued by the woman who was seen being dragged by city askaris.
According to the latest development, all the individual enforcement officers who were captured in the video that has since gone viral will be among those who will be taken to court.
By yesterday afternoon, Magolo and Nyamori had a long meeting with the Federation of Kenyan Women Lawyers, Independent Medical Legal Unit and Kenya Human Rights Commission to draft the petition ahead of its filing today.
This comes despite the fact that the County Government has already promised to cater for all her medical treatment after she got some injuries in the process of being dragged on the tarmac.
The city management had also said that they would be compensating her by giving her a market stall at the market where she will be working from instead of hawking her items at restricted areas.
It is understood that she seeks to get huge compensation by the county government of Kisumu by requesting the court to determine that her rights were violated during the heinous act.
