In the case filed at the Milimani Law Courts before Senior resident magistrate Honourable Orenge dated 2nd September 2019, the document doesn’t mention any articles specifically, but states that Nyakundi should offer an apology in the ‘same manner of prominence and circulation towards correcting the defamation against the Plaintiffs’ raising eyebrows on why they would demand for an aplogy and pulling down of the articles yet the case has not been determined.
Our sources sent us the summons document stating that Blogger Cyprian Nyakundi is ‘required to forthwith pull down all the defamatory materials posted on your blog page failure of which we shall institute contempt proceeding against you within the next 3 days’.
