Milimani High Court directs Nation Media Group to pull down the ‘Covid-19 Millionaires’ story from their social media platforms pending the trial of a slander case against them.

In the case, Megascope Ltd went to court accusing NMG and journalist Dennis Okari of supposedly connecting it to the Kemsa scandal thereby misrepresenting the firm.

Justice Joseph Sergon on Wednesday morning conferred the order petitioned for by Megascope and directed NMG to pull down the said story from their social media platforms pending the hearing of the case.
The investigative story that was also uploaded on NTV’s Youtube channel has so far accumulated over 700,000 views.

Lawyer Njoroge Regeru for Megascope had asked Justice Sergon to give them the order claiming that by the story being on social media it extends in damaging his client’s credit.

NMG lawyer Kiragu Kimani denied the application to pull down the story saying the earlier order assigned by the court for them not to carry any more stories on Megascope in relation to the scandal were sufficient.

In a virtual hearing, Judge Sergon also approved NMG and Okari’s affidavits that were filed late last evening to be part of the case.
