A Nairobi court has awarded a business woman almost a million shillings after an airline company failed to give her an air ticket.

She was traveling to Burundi on a business Congress.

The court awarded her Sh900,000 for general damages.

Senior Principal Magistrate Peter Muholi in his ruling said that Ms Agnes Kagure Kariuki was ill treated and as such was awarded the aforementioned amounts.

“She lowered herself to the prospective customers and the associations of Kenyans in Burundi and this must be degrading,” said Muholi.

Ms Kariuki had filed a suit against Director Michael Kamau, Nyalori Stephen and Uniglobe Northline Travel on July 24, 2014 seeking compensation for inconveniences, damages for breach of contract, damage and interests.

The company denied any wrong doing on their part and asked the court to dismiss the suit with costs.

“I wanted to buy an air ticket to Bunjumbura in Rwanda and I spoke to Stephen Nyalori who confirmed that they would offer the services,” said Ms Kariuki in court documents.

When she arrived at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport she was informed that the booking had been cancelled by the Company officials and therefore she could not travel as intended.

“I was a guest speaker at a congregation of Kenyans working in Bujumbura and my failure to travel meant that my employer had lost potential business,” She told the court.
