Suna East MP Junet Mohamed has been ordered to pay 6 million shillings in damages to Nyali MP Mohammed Ali, for making inappropriate comments about him on social media.

The court said that the comments harmed Ali’s reputation and religious standing.

“The tweet portrayed the plaintiff as a hypocrite who professes Islamic faith yet goes against its core teachings. This can largely be deciphered from how the other Twitter users reacted to the impugned tweet,” part of the court ruling reads.

“In the upshot, I find that the plaintiff proved all the elements of the tort of defamation against the defendant,” it added.

In 2022, the Nyali MP accused his Suna East colleague of defamation by alluding that he was having a sexual affair with a Twitter user Aoko.
