However in the FORT-HALL BAKERY SUPPLY CO. v WANGOE as unreported High Court case there a group of forty-five people had carried at a bakery business below the name of 'Fort-Hall Bakery Supply Co'.  Whatever the assumed business employed Wangoe as its manager although later on dismissed him.  Therefore proceedings brought in High Court to recover a certain amount of money alleged to be owed through him to the business the court terminated the proceedings immediately as its attention was drawn to the fact such the association had not been registered below the Companies Act and had not been formed under any Act of Parliament.  Conversely the court held that the association must be treated as non-existent from a legal point of view and could not thus be allowed to sue.
