QUESTION ONE: COMPULSORY
Mr. Dayo Anwari, by a plaint dated the 19th August, 2012, filed an action in the lower court to recover Ksh.16,000/- for goods sold and delivered to JKUAT University in April 2012. The Defendant denied the claim on the grounds that the goods delivered were of inferior quality, and were delivered late, making them useless for the purpose for which they were ordered.
However, the Defendant did not return the goods, but claims that it rejected the goods by telephone. When the plaintiff failed to collect them, the Defendant alleges that it destroyed them. The magistrate hearing the case, nevertheless, went ahead and made a finding of fact which, indeed, was her duty to do. She delivered her judgment as follows:
“Goods were supplied and accepted. Defendant did not repudiate the contract by returning the goods. To date, it still keeps the same which it says it destroyed. I conclude that whether the goods were of low quality or not the defendant accepted the same and still keeps them. It should make good for the same”
