A defiant Rachel Shebesh on Sunday vowed to ignore a court order requiring her and Nairobi governor Evans Kidero to reconcile.
Through her lawyer Cecil Miller, Ms Shebesh told Dr Kidero to prepare for a legal duel saying she was not going to participate in an out of court settlement.
“We have no intention to negotiate and my client has issued express instructions to this effect, consequently, there are no intentions to strike any agreement out of court. My client wants the law to be the arbiter,” Mr Miller told Nairobi News.
The lawyer said they have enough witnesses to testify in favour of Ms Shebesh.
The High Court on Friday blocked the Director of Public Prosecutions Keriako Tobiko from pursuing charges against Dr Kidero and Ms Shebesh of assault and creating disturbance, respectively. (READ: Kidero, Shebesh face charges over slap)
Justice Isaac Lenaola also ordered that they pursue reconciliation and report back to him within 13 days. (READ: Kidero, Shebesh ordered to reconcile)
