The court has given blogger Cyprian Nyakundi one week only to personally appear in court so he can receive “appropriate punishment” for defaming Safaricom CEO Bob Collymore.

Nyakundi skipped court for the second time yesterday. He has however been given a last chance to attend on February 8.

Justice Mwihaki Njuguna allowed him time to file a reply to allegations that he has continued to write and share offending articles maligning Collymore.

Lawyer Nani Mungai, representing the Safaricom CEO, said there was no plausible explanation of Nyakundi’s absence in court while he is still actively engaged on social media.

He applied for a warrant of arrest against Nyakundi but the Judge observed that he deserved the final adjournment to present his mitigation before sentence is pronounced.

Mr Mungai has accused the blogger of not showing remorse despite being found guilty of deliberately disobeying court orders restraining him from publishing offending articles on social media from last year December.

Safaricom boss wants Nyakundi to be jailed to block him from publishing any other defamatory articles that touch on his person.
