Another Blow to Uhuru from the Court

Lawyer Waweru Gatonye , who represented the president, Uhuru Kenyatta in the court of appeal during building bridges initiative (BBI) hearing, will now be smiling all the way to the bank after a government agency was ordered to pay him ksh263 million. 

Gatonye who has over 30 years experience in law practice, was among the top brains that represented the Head of state in a suit that sought to nullify hos 2017 elections. The Insurance Regulatory Authority (IRA), was ordered to pay the lawyer even after the authority had filed a suit complaining that the fee demanded by the lawyer was too high. The court, however, dismissed the suit and ordered the authority and the president to compensate him. 

The lawyer who founded Waweru Gitonye and co. advocates, is among few Kenyans lawyers commanding top shilling hourly rates before taking on cases. Nelson Havi, the Law of Kenya Society president also revealed during an interview that he charges atleast 2 million in legal fees. He justified that a lawyer of his standing should not charge anything below that amount.
