Peter Salasya Tells Court He’s Unable to Pay Debt Due to Long-standing Financial Obligations

Mumias East MP Peter Salasya has submitted an application in court, seeking permission to repay a sum of Sh500,000 plus interest and associated costs owed to a Kakamega businessman in instalments.

He has requested a temporary suspension of the judgment’s execution until his application is heard and decided upon.

Additionally, he seeks approval to reimburse the amount in monthly instalments of Sh50,000.

This plea was accompanied by an affidavit filed on March 28 under a certificate of agency, where he stated his inability to settle the entire sum at once due to pre-existing financial commitments.

According to Salasya, negotiations for an instalment-based settlement have been attempted with the respondent.

However, while the respondent’s legal representatives initially expressed willingness to negotiate, they concurrently pursued warrants and police intervention.

The judgement, rendered by G. Kiama on November 27, 2023, in the Small Claims Court of Kakamega, favored the businessman who had lent the MP Sh500,000.

In addition to the principal sum, the court directed the payment of interest at its designated rate, along with the litigation expenses.

The MP fears significant losses, inconvenience, and public embarrassment if the judgment’s execution proceeds uninterrupted.

Following the businessman’s acquisition of a decree to enforce payment from the MP on January 18, Salasya took legal action.

The businessman, represented by Wafula Wawire & Company Advocates, secured a warrant of attachment on February 7.

The court convened on Tuesday, scheduling an inter partes hearing for Thursday. Salasya’s plea for a stay on the judgment’s execution underscores his financial constraints and efforts toward an equitable resolution.
