Dear Sir,

 

RE: MEETING OF MULTI-AGENCY COMMIITEE TO REVIEW STATUS  OF  KHRC  &AFRICOG  AND  IN  THE HIGH COURT OF KENYA AT NAIROBI. JUDICIAL REVIEW DIVISION, MISC. APP NO 504 OF 2017 AFRICOG & 7 OTHERS VERSUS YOURSELVES  AND 6 OTHERS

 

I act for Africog and its directors who are in receipt of your letter dated 22 nd August 2017 and are under instructions to respond as here under;

That we moved Court under Certificate of Urgency and successfully  argued  our  Application  on  the  16’h  August  2017  before Justice Enoch Chacha who  granted  leave to  apply for  the Orders of  Cetiorari  and  Mandamus  and that,  such leave was to operate as Stay pending hearing and determination  of the Judicial  Review   Application.

We are thus shocked and dismayed to learn that, notwithstanding being served with the Court order with an express  Penal

Notice on the  18th August 2017, you have continued  purporting to act on this issue contrary to the aforesaid Court Order.

 

TAKE NOTICE that your conduct so far is in flagrant disobedience of the Court Order, thereby attracting appropriate Contempt  of  Court  proceeding.

 

TAKE FURTHER NOTICE that your Multi  Agency Committee  should forthwith  cease and desist from  deliberating  and or acting on any matter relating to our clients. We have once more enclosed  herewith  a copy of the Court Order  for  your record and attention….
