Gachoka released after spending weekend in jail

08 June 2015, 12:08 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - Political analyst and businessman Tony Gachoka has been released from jail after an appeal over his KES 2 million fine in an alleged slander case.

The analyst and Public Relations guru spent the weekend in jail after he failed to firm up the 2 million fine in the three hour window the Nairobi magistrates court gave him Friday afternoon.

Monday though, he was released and his sentence and fine suspended after Judge Weldon Korir at the High Court said that a case in which he is contesting contempt of court charges is finalized.

Gachoka and television talk show host Jeff Koinange were Friday slapped with the KES 2 million fine after Resident Magistrate Maisy Chesang found that they had acted in contempt of court.

The accusation arose from a case pitting them against businessman Jimi Wanjigi who had filed a defamation suit against the two for allegedly linking his Kwacha Group of Companies Limited to the Anglo-Leasing scandal on the Jeff Koinange Live show.

The two had been issued with a court injunction not to speak on the matter but ignored it.

Also fined the KES 2 million each alongside the two Standard Group boss Sam Shollei and legal head Caro Cheruiyot whose organization runs the Kenya Television Network in which the Jeff Koinange Luve show airs.
