Here is why blogger Nyakundi is suing NTV anchor Larry Madowo

Blogger Cyprian Nyakundi on Monday said he would file a defamation suit against NTV’s Larry Madowo on Wednesday this week.

The blogger posted on his twitter account that his seven days ultimatum to Larry for an apology had expired.

“Gave @LarryMadowo 7 days to apologize but he has refused. On Wednesday my Lawyer proceeds to File Case. Time to prove what he said in court,” tweeted the blogger.

Undaunted, Larry Madowo replied, “Bring it on @C_NyaKundiH. This should be fun. Take a loan, you’ll need it.”

The blogger had sent a letter to the NTV anchor demanding for an apology for being mentioned in an unedited copy of the #Front Row column that he published on his (Larry) blog.

In the blog, titled Of broke ‘bigwigs’, social media influencers and Sh50m tweets, Larry lamented how he just discovered that he had been underutilizing his twitter followers as there is a way “bigwigs” are minting millions from people seeking to tarnish other people’s names.

Larry  went ahead and named bloggers who were embroiled in an alleged extortion case against a billionaire corporate executive.

The blog was posted four months ago.
