Narc-Kenya party leader Martha Karua has sent auctioneers to sell Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria’s properties in a bid to recover Sh6.5 million.
Karua was awarded the amount by the High Court in Nairobi in 2017 after she sued MP Kuria for defamation.
Kuria had accused Karua of procuring fake witnesses to fix Deputy President William Ruto at the International Criminal Court (ICC), where he was facing criminal charges related to the 2007/2008 post-election violence.
Karua hired Haki Traders Auctioneers to sell several assets belonging to MP Kuria including sofa sets, a home theatre, microwave, a coffee table, television stand, refrigerator, and carpet. Also on the list are two motor vehicles—a Honda and a Land Cruiser.
"This is to command you to sell by auction after giving 15 days prior notice by afixing the same in the court house," Karua said in a letter to the auctioneering company.
Karua told the court that the MP repeated the same allegations at Parliament Buildings despite her demanding an unconditional apology from him. She was demanding Sh20 million from Kuria in damages for defamation.
"The claims are scandalous, malicious, unwarranted, and lowered my dignity among right-thinking members of the society,” she said.
Kuria did not defend the suit.
