Immediate former Chief Justice David Kenani Maraga has sued Nairobi lawyer Ahmednasir Abdullahi over dafamatory tweet.
“If CJ Maraga is a decent and honest Kenyan, he should come clean on the issue of the SENIOR judge of the SUPREME COURT who took Kshs 220 million BRIBE. Me and CJ Maraga know the judge…intelligent Kenyans must read A LOT on Maraga’s astute silence on this matter!”, Ahmednasir wrote on his twitter handle on January 12th 2021 at 7:25 am.
“The said post was circulated to other unquantifiable Twitter users by virtue of being ‘retweeted’ or ‘liked’ onto other users’ Twitter timelines. The said post is still on his Twitter handle and is accessible to millions of Twitter subscribers throughout the world,” he says in suit papers.
Maraga further stated that as an elder of the Seventh-day Adventist Church, a position that requires a person of high moral character and unquestionable integrity, and as a person frequently called upon to preach, the post by Ahmednasir defamed his character.
“The defendant presently has a huge national and international following on his said Twitter Account’, Maraga added.
As of January 12, 2021, the defendant had 1.1 million followers on that Twitter account who read, have access to, and comment and may retweet all his posts and tweets,” claims Maraga.
