BBC have caused Wetang'ula stress, anxiety and embarrasment

22 December 2015, 16:51 William Korir

Nairobi - CORD Co-Principal Moses Wetangula has sued the British Broadcasting Corporation BBC over articles linking him to corruption and bribery with the British American Tobacco Company BAT.

Wetangula, through lawyer James Orengo says that the BBC used defamatory language to describe his relationship with the BAT and that there is no basis for their accusation in an article that he took bribes whilst he was trade minister.

Wetangula says that he was defamed by BBC in its programme called Panorama, which allegedly portrayed him has having solicited the purchase of an airline ticket to London for his wife.

" The programme, revealed that the honourable Senator was corruptly involved in a corporate scandal in which BAT bribed him while he was serving as Trade Minister in 2012," the application made by Orengo at the High Court read.

The Senate Minority Leader through Senior Counsel James Orengo, says that the article has been used as a basis of unjustified attacks against the senator by his political rivals and civil society.

Orengo argues that the report is false and malicious and cannot be true.

" It is difficult for the senator to perform his duties and functions under the cloud of defamatory story which is causing him stress, anxiety and embarrassment,” Orengo says in court documents.

Wetangula has denied allegations that he was bribed by BAT, terming the claims as ‘nauseating, unfortunate, scandalous, malicious and slanderous to the extreme’.
