Flamboyant city lawyer Donald Kipkorir has moved to High Court seeking an order to compel Baringo county government to pay him Kes 17.5 million.
Kipkorir was hired in May 2015 to represent Baringo county government in a lawsuit against Turkana county government over boundary dispute.
The rich lawyer is one of the most prominent lawyers in Kenya, he has represented big name in politics and showbiz including Larry Madowo in a defamation case against Cyprian Nyakundi.
Won but no pay
Kipkorir is furious Baringo county government won’t pay him Kes 17.5 million legal fee despite winning the case for them. In June last year, Justice John Mativo ordered that he be paid the full sum.
He moved to High Court to seek an order to compel Baringo county government to pay him the full amount after they failed to heed the ruling of the lower court. Kipkorir wants his money within five days.
“I acted for the county in the case until a judgement was given in their (Baringo’s) favour. They initially refused to settle my legal fees, forcing me to move to High Court,” said Kipkorir.
