In the decision, Judge Alfred Mabeya referred the case to the Competition Authority of Kenya (CAK) to complete the investigation within 120 days.

“Accordingly, I am supervising the original objection and I have filed a petition and petition. I urge the third defendant (CAK) to proceed with the proceedings he had initiated as a result of the complaint touching the grievances here and to deal with them in accordance with the law,” Judge Mabeya ruled.

The judge ruled that the results obtained after 120 days would help the court make the right decision on the matter.

“The reason for the doctrine of fatigue to be held in honor is because of the right to justice. First, it promotes alternative dispute resolution. Second, it reduces litigation in our courts and thirdly provides parties with an additional council column where parties can lodge their grievances. “That expands the right to justice,” Judge Mabeya said.

Six distributors accused EABL of buying world-class bottles and labeling them with their own unique logo. This, they said, low productivity and market access by other breweries.

The six defendants accused EABL and Kenya Breweries Limited of trying to get Keroche off the market.

The six include Alexander Mugo, Jacob Wamiti, Phasty Wanjitu Wachira, Samuel Kamau, Catherine Wanjiru and Herman Mwaura.

The bottle in question is a 500 Euros brown bottle.
