Alexis Jubilee sued Justice Wambuzi jointly with an Eritrean national Yonas Ghidey, viagra approved whom she accuses of evicting her from block 244 plot 1652 at Kisugu where she operates her businesses that includes a salon, sickness steam bath, thumb sauna, bar, restaurant and massage parlor

Jubilee contends that the premises in question were leased to her for five years by Justice Wambuzi at a monthly rental payment of 1,000 US dollars (approx 3.3 million shillings).
