BY JOHN WERU,NAIROBI,29TH SEPT 2017-Veteran politician Kenneth Matiba will now be paid ksh 978 million for compensation after he was illegally detained during the struggle for Multiparty democracy in the 1990s.
This is after the Attorney general Githu Muigai consented to an enhancement of his compensation from Sh504 million.
This is after it was discovered that there was an error in the calculation.
Matiba had moved to court to challenge the award of shs 504 million by court in early July claiming that the loss he suffered while under custody was huge and the cash could not do much to his already sorry state.
The politician is said to have suffered losses amounting to millions of shillings after his businesses and investments were affected.
