TV host Jeff Koinange fined KES 2 million for contempt of court

05 June 2015, 18:44 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - TV host Jeff Koinange and other have been charged KES 2 million each or six months in jail for disobeying court orders.

Koinange was slapped with the fine Friday in a Nairobi court for ignoring a court order and then going on to disobey a court summon.

Also fined  the same amounts were the Standard Group company secretary Carol Cheruiyot and political analyst Tony Gachoka.

The Standard Group runs the Kenya Television Network under which Koinange's show 'Jeff Koinange Live' broadcasts.

Principal Magistrate Maisy Chesang found Koinange and Gachoka guilty of contempt of court and gave them two hours to deposit the money or be remanded at Industrial Area prison until they pay the amount.

Ms Cheruiyot was however released her on a cash bail of KES 100,000 but was given until Monday to pay the KES 2 million or also face time behind bars.

The three parties are accused of ignoring an order by businessman Jimi Wanjigi, his brother Sani Mbui Wanjigi and the Kwacha Group of Companies, which stopped them from speaking about the brothers and their company on the talk show.

Koinange and Gachoka however went on to comment on the Wanjigis and went on to link them to the Anglo Leasing scandal.

The two were thus arrested for their mishap and arraigned in court.
