Nairobi Governor Anne Kananu has obtained orders gagging her predecessor Mike Sonko from posting any further videos, comments, texts or materials on social media implicating her in any wrongdoings.
Milimani Chief Magistrate Eston Nyaga Friday temporarily barred Sonko from posting any defamatory information about Ms Kananu.
The governor moved to court after a series of postings on social media disparaging her and sought orders barring Sonko from posting any material on social media injuring her character.
“Respondents by themselves are hereby restrained by an order of temporary injunction from further writing, printing, publishing, circulating, disseminating or causing to be written, printed, published, circulated, disseminated in any manner whatsoever any, audio and/or video recordings, words and statements that are defamatory and/or disparaging in any manner whatsoever to the applicant,” Mr Nyaga ordered.
The orders comes after Ms Kananu sued Sonko for posting on social media information she claims was defamatory and tarnishes her name.
Sonko allegedly released a series of video and audio recordings accusing Ms Kananu of colluding with other persons to destroy his political career and eventually removing him from office.
