Leigh Day acts for Masai in MoD case

Leigh Day & Co has represented a group of six Masai in their negotiations with the Ministry of Defence (MoD) over injuries sustained by Masai tribespeople on an MoD military range in Kenya

The six represent more than 500 Masai children who have been killed or seriously maimed by unexploded bombs left behind on military ranges in Kenya.
Around 2,500 troops use Kenyan ranges each year and it is estimated that around 10 per cent of the shells they use do not explode.
Represented by Leigh Day name partner Martyn Day in seeking compensation from the UK Government, the Masai went through a mediation process with MoD representatives last Thursday and Friday.
The UK Government agreed to pay the group £4.5m and the most severely injured will get around £250,000 each.
