Moses Kuria ordered to pay Martha Karua Sh6.5 Million

Kuria to part with millions of shillings

Karua took Kuria to court for linking her to the procurement of witnesses, who were allegedly used to fix Deputy President William Ruto in the crime against humanity cases at the International Criminal Court (ICC).

The former Kirinyaga Gubernatorial aspirant claimed that the legislator’s utterances were malicious, unwarranted and defamatory.

The High Court directed the Gatundu legislator to pay Ms Karua 65 million as damages.

Karua argued that her image and reputation, as well as her standing as a politician, businesswoman, family woman and an advocate, was damaged following Kuria’s remarks.

“Unless the defendant is compelled by this honorable court to cease 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," Karua remarked.

The renowned politician insisted that she has never met Kuria to discuss the procurement of fake witnesses for the ICC prosecutor.

In September 2015 while speaking in Kapsokwony, Bungoma County, the Gatundu MP divulged that he met Karua and other leaders at Club Galileo in Westlands where the plan was hatched.

“In addition, he stated that I met him and others at Club Galileo in Westlands where we devised a scheme to recruit witnesses against the Deputy President for the case against him,” Karua told the court.
