City lawyer Harrison Musyoka has offered to give free legal representation to the family of Caleb Otieno who was killed after he fell into a steel factory boiler last month.

In an interview with K24 Digital, Musyoka said he is ready to give free legal representation to the late Caleb's family to ensure they get the justice they deserve.

The lawyer claims that the amount of Ksh420,000 offered by the company to the family as compensation for their son's death is laughable and a big mockery to the family who was left without a body to bury.

"These people are trying to subvert the rule of law by offering compensation which is basically not commensurate with what the family underwent in terms of trauma, pain and suffering and of course they have no body to bury," Musyoka said.

Musyoka added that the employer ought to consider all the issues and offer the family a reasonable amount.

"If we are instructed, we will engage the company for negotiations. If they fail, we will have to instigate a legal proceeding against the company," he said.
