Former Nakuru MP complains to DPP and AG over news blog

14 November 2013, 21:58

Nakuru -  One-time Nakuru Town legislature David Manyara has written to the office of Attorney General and to the  Director of Public Prosecution, demanding for action to be taken against a Kenyan news blog for allegedly posting a defamatory statement against him.

In a letter to the two offices, Manyara’s lawyer David Nyamweya Ongeri termed the article posted on the Kenyan Daily Post online site on November 4, 2013 alleging that Manyara was an ICC witness as malicious, criminally reckless and baseless and now wants the blog to be investigated and prosecuted.

In the letter, Ongeri pointed out that Manyara has never been a prosecution witness as he does not believe there is any truth in the ICC case and would not therefore be party to it.

“We want the Attorney General and the office of DPP to take action against whoever manages the news blog for negative posts that are not true,” read the letter.

He added that the article only intended to malign his name as well as endanger and/or risk his life.

The Kenyan Daily Post, an online news site, posted an article on the 4th of November this year, titled "Former MPs Jane Kihara/David Manyara are among ICC betrayers to incriminate Uhuru Kenyatta", giving reasons that Manyara was said to be too broke after losing a couple of elections and that he agreed to be an ICC witness against President Uhuru Kenyatta after he was promised money if he testified against the President.
