Grand Mullah and blogger Nyakundi sued for libel

Former Central Bank of Kenya governor, Nahashon Nyagah, has taken senior counsel Ahmednasir Abdullahi and controversial blogger Cyprian Nyakundi to court for defamation in connection to Tatu City.

Abdullahi, Nyakundi and Al-Nur Media Africa Limited have all been named as defendants by the former governor through Havi and Company Advocates.

The plaintiff filed the civil case on April 01, 2016 at Milimani Court Civil Division and the three defendants are required to appear in court within 15 days.

In the court papers filed by the plaintiff, Nyaga claims Ahmednasir used Nairobi Law Monthly, Nairobi Business Monthly, social media, several other newspapers and television stations to advance his or his clients causes on civil and criminal matters pending before any courts of law in the Republic of Kenya relating to Tatu and Kolinaf which contravenes his professional duty as an advocate.

GENERAL DAMAGES

Nyaga is demanding damages and breach of confidence and also general damages for slander against Ahmednasir. He also wants general damages for libel against the three defendants.

The plaintiff also want Al-Nur Media Africa Limited the Nairobi Law Monthly and Nairobi Business Monthly removed from their website and also the three defendants to remove anything relating to Tatu and Kolinaf from their social media platforms.

This comes at a time another defamation case against Nyakundi that was filed by Vimalkumar Bhimji Depar Shah and Bidco Africa Limited in September 2015 is still pending in court.
