The Court of Appeal in Nyeri dismissed application by lawyer Gathiga Mwangi and found he was instead entitled to Sh45,000. The judges ruled the bill of costs was properly assessed and there were no errors of principle committed. Mr Mwangi argued that the taxing officer failed to consider his journeys to the home of Ms Kiano over a civil case involving a land property in Mathira, Nyeri. But the judges said "a journey to a client's home is not provided for in the Advocates Remuneration Order". Ms Kiano’s lawyer Wahome Gikonyo contended that no reasons were advanced to warrant the court’s interference with the taxing officer’s decision.
