Blogger Cyprian Nyakundi Jailed
Blogger Cyprian Nyakundi has been handed a 4-month jail sentence or pay Sh300,000 fine for contempt of court over defamatory publications against Safaricom C.E.O Bob Collymore.
High court found the controversial blogger in contempt of court for publishing information about a mobile telecommunications company boss while attacking the media industry.
The dispute started way back in June when Collymore and his predecessor Michael Joseph sued the blogger for publishing defamatory statements about them.
Lady Justice Njuguna issued temporary orders stopping Nyakundi from making any further publications on his blog about Collymore and Joseph.
Despite apologising to the court over his actions, Nyakundi went ahead and published another article defaming Collymore.
