The High Court rules in favor of Christine Mwangi, a KEMSA employee, awarding her Ksh.1.5 million in compensation for an unjust transfer from Nairobi to Mombasa after she exposed financial irregularities.

The High Court has ordered the Kenya Medical Supplies Authority (KEMSA) to pay Ksh.1.5 million in compensation to Christine Mwangi, one of its accountants, for an unlawful transfer from the head office in Nairobi to Mombasa. Christine expressed her satisfaction with the court’s decision, saying, “I am grateful that justice has been served, and my rights have been upheld.”

The court ruling came after Christine challenged the decision made by the then KEMSA CEO to transfer her to the Mombasa Regional Depot after she raised concerns about a financial irregularity involving the approval of Ksh.8.7 million to a law firm.

Justice Stella Rutto of the Employment and Labour Relations Court ruled in Christine’s favor, declaring the transfer null and void, stating that it violated her rights, and awarding her the damages.
