“She fired her from employment and paid her some Sh14,390 for being abusive to some clients and at the same time she deducted her some money since she had not worked for some days,” prosecutor Nancy Kerubo told the court.

The court heard that the accused was ordered to pack her things before she was handed a document to sign.

“She paid her and directed her to pack and leave but before that she gave her a certain book to sign which Adhiambo declined and continued packing her items to leave the place,” Boke heard.
