Adow says, he took the lorry to the said company and paid more than Sh600,000 ($4,938 USD) as a payment for the said tanker only for the Bhachu Industries to use fake and faulty material causing the accident.

A young Somali businessman has filed a civil suit at the Milimani labour court seeking more than Sh24 million ($197,530 USD) in compensation from Bhachu Industries.

According to court papers filed at the court on October 7, 2022, Mohamed Abdi Madow says he is seeking the said amount following an incident where a tanker allegedly built by the Bhachu Industries dropped from the truck on its way in Congo while transporting fuel.

Adow says, he took the lorry to the said company and paid more than Sh600,000 for the tanker.

He accuses Bhachu Industries of using fake and faulty material in making the tanker, his ground for filing the case states.

According to the businessman who does transportation, his truck is still detained in Congo and the effort by Bhachu Industries to pay him for damages has gone futile despite alleged numerous promises by the management to compensate him for the loss.

He told the Star that initially, Bhachu Industries allegedly agreed to pay him compensation for the damage and loss he incurred only to refuse later.

The petitioner is now seeking the court's intervention to compel Bhachu industries to compensate him.

Attempts by the Star to reach out to Bhachu industries for their side of the story were futile as our call went unanswered. We pledge to give their side of the story as soon as we access them.
