A Nairobi court has issued orders barring Former Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko from posting any further videos, comments, texts or materials implicating current Governor Ann Kananu in any wrongdoing.

Milimani law court Magistrate Heston Nyaga restrained Sonko from posting any defamatory information against Kananu.

"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," Nyaga ordered.

The orders come after Kananu sued Sonko for posting in the social media, information the governor claims are defamatory and meant to tarnish her name.

Sonko allegedly released a series of video and audio recordings accusing Kananu of colluding with other persons to destroy his political career and eventually remove him from office.
