Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria will next week know whether he will be ordered to pay former Justice Minister Martha Karua millions for allegedly damaging her reputation after linking her to procuring of witnesses to allegedly fix Deputy President William Ruto.
The MP had been given a chance by High Court judge Joseph Sergon to defend his claims but by Tuesday, he was yet to file his defence or appear in court over the matter.
Ms Karua, through her lawyer Gitobu Imanyara, asked the court to go ahead and deliver its decision.
The Narc-Kenya leader is seeking to be paid Sh20 million as damages by Mr Kuria after he allegedly claimed that she procured witnesses to fix Mr Ruto at The Hague.
In submissions filed in court, Ms Karua says the words uttered by Mr Kuria were not only damaging to her reputation but also lowered her dignity among right thinking members of the society.
