The High Court has ordered Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria to refrain from making statements that connect Martha Karua in the ploy of fixing Deputy President William Ruto in the criminal charges at the International Criminal Court.
Judge Joseph Sergon warned the Gatundu South MP against making the alleged defaming remarks stating that the Narc Kenya leader had a very strong case in court which had a high chance of success.
Last week Karua made good her threat to sue the MP after he failed to make an apology over the injurious utterances.
This comes after Kuria publicly revealed that he sought for ICC witnesses alongside Karua and added that he was willing to testify at the Intenational Criminal Court (ICC).
In the law suit, Karua is seeking compensation from the legislator for tarnishing her reputation by suggesting that she was an unlawful and untrustworthy public servant when she served as Minister for Justice and Constitutional Affairs, and that she was involved in bribing people to testify against the DP.
Karua also wanted the court to stop Kuria from repeating his statement.
“Unless Mr Kuria is compelled by the court to cease from maligning my name and further injuring my reputation, I stand to suffer irreparable harm from his reckless and unwarranted attack on my integrity on grounds which he cannot substantiate,” said Karua.
The Court directed Mr Kuria to file his response within 14 days and scheduled a hearing for 14 October.
