Now, Matendechere through his lawyer Prof Tom Ojienda wants corporates companies to pay him for using his images and videos to advertise products.

In a report by the standard, Matendechere has earmarked Co-operative Bank, National Cereals and Produce Board (NCPD) and Ruiru Mabati Factory for the financial settlements.

In the court documents, Matendechere argued that the society thinks he was paid for the advertisements. This, he said, is giving him a psychological torture.
