Makueni governor Kivutha Kibwana has taken Blogger Cyprian Nyakundi to court over a very controversial article the blogger did on his blog www.cnyakundi.com
The article titled ” Governor Kibwana’s addiction to anal sex worries aides” exposed the governor’s randy lifestyle and linked him to corruption where the Nairobi Blogger alleged that the governor is building a Ksh. 600 Million hotel using funds syphoned from Makueni county coffers.
To stop the blogger from doing more stories about him, the governor has gone to court and gotten gag orders.
Pursuant to the application dated 24th October 2019, Justice J.K Sergon J. gave the following directions
- Having considered the grounds stated on the face of the motion dated 24th October 2019 plus the facts deponed in the supporting affidavit I am satisfied that the motion is urgent.
The same is fixed for inter-parties hearing on 7th November, 2019
In the meantime, prayer 2 of the aforesaid motion is granted to last until then.
Notice of motion prayer 2 reads:-
That the defendant/respondent be restrained by way of interim injunction either by himself, their agents and/or servants from further publishing defamatory statements of and concerning the plaintiff/applicant and/or his family pending the hearing and determination of this application.
Judge Sergon has featured in most Blogger Cyprian Nyakundi cases where he has granted more than 10 orders gagging the blogger raising suspicions as to why everyone that wants an order rushes to him.
The Blogger has not commented on the recent developments.
