For the short stint he represented Pastor Ng’ang’a, before dramatically pulling out citing safety concerns, lawyer Cliff Ombeta is demanding sh5 million as his legal dues.
Ombeta, who represented Ng’ang’a following a fatal accident allegedly involving his Range Rover, filed the suit at the Milimani law courts on September 22.
â€œThe televangelist had contracted me to act for him by choice and due to the complexity of the matter. He should not avoid expenses,â€ he said.
â€œHe must be mad if he said he did not contract me. I cannot just wake up and take a case I was not invited to.”
Speaking to the Star in Mombasa onÂ Tuesday, he noted that he helped the pastor with the police, and his doctor to check DNA samples against those found in the car.
Ombeta, who said the televangelist is financially able, wants the court to compel him to pay the legal fees.
