Kenyan lawyer brags that his cheapest suit cost him KSh 170,000
Ombeta is representing in court, the police officers who are suspected of killing human rights lawyer, Willie Kimani,his client, and a taxi driver. Ombeta at an interview with the Standard newspaper said that everyone was innocent until proven guilty- that he was just doing his duty.
Ombeta has come under attack from lawyers and advocates who have accused him of defending murderers who killed an innocent city lawyer.
At the interview, the flamboyant lawyer who is known for his taste in fashion said that in his closet, the cheapest suit cost him around KSh 170,ooo- that is the price of a 40 by 80 patch of land in Juja Farm- if the posters we see on the streets are to go by.
The lawyer revealed that he inherited the knack for expensive dressing from his late father who was a commisioner of the customs at the Kenya Revenue Authority.

Ombetta went on to tell the Standard newspaper that some of his suits cost him an upward of KSh 500,000 and that he would not be caught dead in a suit that goes for KSh, 30,000- because everyone wears that.
