The lawyer, Joshua Odhiambo Nyamori, is an activist who offered to help Magolo pursue the case. The lady said that too much harm was caused to her and that her dignity was ruined.

Prior to the decision, Nyamori together with the Federation of Kenyan Women Lawyers, Magolo met to discuss her predicament. In attendance was the Kenya Human Rights Commission and the Independent Medical Legal Unit.

Nyamori said that the petition will be filed today. Besides, he said that they will purse the perpetrators of the act with the help of the police. They seek to ensure that the county askaris involved are brought to book.

Magolo had sought medication at Oginga Odinga Teaching and Referral Hospital. She said that she had not abandoned the matter as earlier speculated. She was waiting for medication since she was in great pain. It is her hope that she will finally get justice.
