The High Court has ordered the Nation Media Group to pull down an investigation piece dubbed ‘COVID-19 millionaires ‘ from all its social media platforms pending hearing and determination of a case filed by one of the companies extensively mentioned in the expose`.
Megascope Limited has sued NMG and its Senior Investigative Journalist Dennis Okari for linking it to the multi-billion shillings scandal at the Kenya Medical Supplies Authority ( KEMSA).
The investigative report indicated that Megascope was among companies picked by KEMSA to clear medical supplies donated by Chinese billionaire Jack Ma after they arrived in the country.
The investigation further reported that part of the donations disappeared after being cleared at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport , an allegation that KEMSA has since dismissed as untrue.
Megascope through its director Richard Ng’atia had moved to court for the adverse mention of his business as well others linked to the scandal in the expose’ adding that the report has maligned the firm.
