Kenya Tea Development Agency (KTDA) is threatening to sue controversial blogger, Cyprian Nyakundi for defamation.

This follows a series of articles by the blogger on his website on the affairs of KTDA and which the tea agency terms “disparaging.”

In a letter dated January 9, 2022, the agency through its lawyers, J.K. Kibicho & Company Advocates, has given the blogger twelve hours to retract the said articles from his website and issue an apology.

“…we have strict instruction to demand, which we hereby do, that; you issue a write apology, and retract the false statements, and the same be published on the same platforms where the untrue statements were made, and within 12 hours of receipt of this letter,” reads the demand notice in part.

Further, the blogger has been asked to delete links to the said articles from his social media handles, and to “cease and desist from making further malicious statements” against KTDA failure to which the organization will seek legal redress against him.

The blogger has previously found himself in a similar situation.

In 2017, a court sentenced him to four months in jail for contempt of court in a matter where Safaricom had sued him for publishing libelous articles.

In 2018, flamboyant politician, Steve Mbogo, sued Nyakundi for publishing defamatory articles about him on his blog while in the same year, the then Interior Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiang’I also sued him for defamation.
