Benitho Thadei Chengula Vs Abdulahi Mohamed Ismail, Civil Appeal No 183 of 2020.

In this case the issue was a parent can institute case for his child who die and that death caused negligence of someone?

Among other things the court had this to say:

we agree with the learned judge that the trauma and anguish of losing a child entitles a parent to maintain an action against a wrongdoer or else it will be cheaper to cause someone’s
death through a wrongful act than to injure him and let him live.

Our
position is strengthened by the principle that where there is a wrong,
there is a remedy (ub jus ibi remedium)
