VIDEO: Utterances that cost Moses Kuria Sh6.5m

Published

on

A court has ordered Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria to pay Narc Kenya leader Martha Karua Sh6.5 million for defaming her. High Court judge Joseph Sergon yesterday also ordered Mr Kuria (below) to pay the cost of the case noting that the lawmaker’s comments were malicious and meant to injure the former Justice minister’s good reputation.

“I award the plaintiff Sh5 million as general damages (and) Sh1.5 million as exemplary damages,” justice Sergon ruled. Karua had asked the court for Sh20 million. The court punished the legislator for linking Karua to Deputy President William Ruto’s prosecution at the International Criminal Court.

The former Gichugu MP said Kuria was unapologetic as he held a press conference at Parliament Buildings and reiterated the same words he had uttered at the rally. The judge noted that there was no truth in Kuria’s claims and that he never bothered to apologise to her.

In the case, the court heard that the MP claimed that the Orange Democratic Movement and Party of National Unity leaders planned to fix the Deputy President. He made the remarks during a prayer rally in Kapsokwony, Bungoma County. The legislator had claimed that he and other PNU leaders fabricated evidence against Mr Ruto after 2007-2008 post election violence.

At the Justice and Constitutional Affairs docket, Karua told the court, she was diligent in her work and that she had built a good name among her peers. Karua noted that Kuria’s statements injured her reputation by implying she was not a trustworthy public servant, politician, businesswoman, advocate and family person. She denied being involved in bribing people to testify against the DP. “Unless the defendant is compelled by this honourable court to cease from maligning my name and further injuring my reputation, I stand to suffer irreparable harm from his reckless and unwarranted attack on my integrity on grounds which he cannot substantiate,” Karua said.

In reply, Kuria argued that Karua had not filed sufficient material to show that she had been defamed. He argued that what he had said was a reflection of the truth of past events which took place with his knowledge and that of the former minister. “I am merely stating factual matters which the plaintiff (Karua) cannot dispute,” he argued.

Man accuses pastor of eloping with his wife

Published

on

A businessman from Juja Farm, KiambuCounty, has accused a pastor who presided over his wedding of eloping with his wife of 26 years.

Mr John Kanyua, a father of five, alleged the pastor supported them and even signed their marriage certificate.

Mr Kanyua claimed the pastor’s relationship with his wife started when his wife was appointed an assistant pastor of a church in Juja Farm.

“I objected Mr Kanyua’s appointment as an assistant pastor, but he (my husband) was determined to have his way. I confronted Mr Kanyua’s wife and threatened her not to play games with my husband,” said the pastor’s wife of 34 years.

The pastor’s wife says her husband soon began to invite Mrs Kanyua for family dinner.

“I confronted Mr Kanyua and asked him to keep his wife away from my husband, the two later eloped in 2015,” she added.

Mr Kanyua alleges that bishop would visit his house in the morning and spend the entire day locked with his wife in the house until he sought the intervention of the local administration and the church.

“The pastor later eloped with my wife and children and rented a house at a nearby market,” Mr Kanyua said.

Mr Kanyua alleges his parents-in-law have since asked him to accept a compensation of the dowry he paid to pave way for their daughter’s new wedding.

He alleges the pastor has informed his children of his intention to marry another wife after separating with their mother.

Mr Kanyua says he still pays school fees for his children and sends them foodstuffs.

“I won’t sit back and watch another man take away my family, I will not allow the wedding to continue,” said Mr Kanyua adding that he is ready to forgiver his wife.

The pastor’s wife says she still does not understand why her husband turned against her.

“We have passed through a lot when we started the church, I won’t allow him to marry a stranger,” she said.
