I have no link to firm guarding courts, says Gladys Shollei

By Standard Reporter | January 8th 2015

Kenya: Former Chief Registrar of the Judiciary Gladys Shollei has distanced herself from allegations that she is linked to a security firm that had allegedly been contracted to guard court premises.

This follows reports in the media that associated her with Riley Services Ltd, which is said to have moved to court accusing Chief Registrar of the Judiciary Anne Amadi of entering into a new contract with Lavington Security.

Mrs Shollei has now threatened to sue two media houses —The Star and The People Daily — for linking her to the firm.

Through her lawyer Edwin Sifuna, Shollei said the articles which appeared in the two dailies on Monday were understood to mean that she was the owner, shareholder or director of Riley Services.

"The articles further suggested that my client is corrupt and has engaged in corruptly sourcing business for companies allegedly associated with her. Further, the articles falsely meant that our client corruptly concealed her alleged conflict of interest when considering Riley Services Limited for the tender during her tenure as Chief Registrar of the Judiciary," Sifuna said in the letter.

Sifuna demanded a written apology published with the same prominence as the defamatory articles, and an admission of liability from the two dailies failing which he would file cases in court. He said his client had lodged a formal complaint with the Media Council of Kenya over the inaccurate reports.
