Mwingi Central Member of Parliament is demanding an apology and Sh 100 million as compensation from Kalonzo Musyoka for alleged slander.
Joe Mutambu, a Wiper Democratic Party MP, has given the former Vice President a seven-day ultimatum to tender “a letter of an unequivocal apology and retraction”.
The alleged slander was made at a rally on October 7 in Kitengela town, Kajiado county.
“The said statement was made in the presence of a massive crowd of people and was recorded on national television. It was made with the intention of portraying our client as a criminal and a person unfit to hold the position of Mwingi Central MP,” his lawyer Katunga Mbuvi argues in court papers.
Mr.Mutambu argues that he is an influential person being an MP and should be compensated with Sh100 million.
“We demand the payment of Sh100 million as compensation for maligning and character assassination to our client,” Mr. Mbuvi stated.
The lawyer has written and served the demand letter dated October 17 to the Wiper leader.
