On 26th April 2013, Justice James Rika delivered the Award in Kenya Union of Journalists and Allied Workers vs. Nation Media Group Limited & Another where the issue in dispute was whether the Respondents were in breach of a CBA between them and the Claimant. The Claimant sought to recover damages in excess of Kshs.30,000,000.00 being salary arrears arising from the alleged breach. During the hearing, the Claimant opted not to adduce oral testimony and relied on an alleged admission by the Legal Officer of the Respondent. The Court in dismissing the claim observed that it is not enough to throw names at the court without calling the affected parties to testify.
The Respondent was represented by Momanyi Nyaosi of Mohammed Muigai Advocates
