JOHNSTONE K. MWANGO v. AFRICAN SAFARI CLUB LTD

(1997) JELR 98304 (CA)

Court of Appeal  •  civ app 122 of 97  •  18 Jul 1997  •  Kenya

Coram

Judgement

JUDGMENT OF THE COURT

This is an appeal from the judgment of the superior court dismissing the appellant's appeal from the decision of the Chief Magistrate's Court seeking an award of Shs.21,560/45 arising from his alleged dismissal.

We see no merit in this appeal. No general damages can be awarded for a breach of contract. The appellant has been fortunate in the award made in his favour.

On our part upon a careful consideration of this matter we are left with no alternative but to dismiss this appeal with costs.

Dated and delivered at Mombasa this 18th day of July, 1997.
