Ruto sues NMG over 'hustler airline' story

22 May 2013, 14:10

Nairobi - The Star reports that the Nation Media Group may have a major court battle following a story on Deputy President William Ruto and the private jet hired for his recent trip to four African countries.

Ruto has demanded that the NMG retract their story in which the Daily Nation stated that the luxury jet hired for the trip cost KES 100 million, and issue apology, and admit liability for libel.

The Daily Nation on Tuesday May 21 in a story titled Ruto office seeks to calm storm over trip, said it is in possession of an invoice from VistaJet for $300,000 (KES 25 million) which also shows that the payment was an instalment for the first quarter of the year. However, a statement from the DP’s office said the cost for hiring the jet was Sh18 million inclusive of VAT and other charges for the entire trip.
