Blow to Orengo after Today's Court Ruling

Orengo to face it...

The court directed Orengo to compensate Gilbert Ogango a sum total of Sh600,000 after his contract was ended prematurely in 2016. The ruling was delivered by Justice Onesmus Makau.

Ogango was employed as a clerk in September at JAB Orengo Advocates, a law firm owned by the Senior Counsel.

According to Mr. Ogango, he decided to quit after the Siaya Senator failed to pay him for a total of 17 months. The clerk started on a Sh15,000 monthly salary but in January 2011 his employer agreed to raise his pay to Sh20,000.

However, trouble began in mid  2013 when he started witnessing delays in salary disbursement. This misery went from worse to worst as Orengo would allegedly stay with Ogango’s salary for up to three months.

In February 2016 Ogango decided to quit after the firm failed to pay him for one year five months.

The clerk filed a lawsuit against Orengo demanding payment of Sh1 million in compensation, including salary arrears of 17 months amounting to Sh340,000, one month salary in lieu of notice of Sh20,000, house allowance of Sh267,000, one year compensation of Sh240,000 and for services rendered to the law firm for the seven years he worked as a clerk.
