Kibaki children threaten to sue Muite.

President Mwai Kibaki’s four children have threatened to sue former Kabete legislator Paul Muite unless he apologises and withdraws alleged defamatory remarks that he made against the first family.

Through Mohammed Muigai advocates, the President’s children Judith, James, David and Anthony said the former MP had defamed them by linking them to the Standard raid and the Armenian Artur brothers.Mr Muite has however maintained that he would not withdraw his remarks and is daring the Head of State’s children to sue.In a letter dated March 12, 2009, the children’s lawyers state that they were specifically instructed by the four to address Mr Muite over defamatory statements touching on their clients.“The words meant and indeed were understood to mean that our clients were involved in the raid of the Standard Group and that they are connected to the Armenian Artur brothers and that our clients partake in criminal activities,” the letter states.

It adds; “Our instructions are therefore to demand from you (Muite), as we hereby do, an immediate retraction of the entire content of the statements made together with an unequivocal apology for uttering false and defamatory remarks.”The letter further states that Mr Muite risks facing legal action unless he retracts and apologises.
