Wednesday November 28, 2018 – Prominent businessman, Jimmy
Wanjigi, is demanding Sh 100 million from Nation Media Group over a fake
obituary they published in February.
Wanjigi, who is NASA’s chief financier, is demanding compensation saying
his rights were violated by a fake obituary the daily paper carried.
Through his lawyer, Willis Otieno, the businessman, who has a close
relationship with NASA leader, Raila Odinga, said the advert treated him as a
dead body.
“The obituary read that the first applicant was supposed to be buried at
Langata cemetery. The obituary treated him as an object while still alive and
was against his right to dignity,” Otieno told the court.
He said the advert disclosed his family and their whereabouts hence
exposing them to danger.
CEO Stephen Gitagama, Editor-in-Chief Tom Mshindi and Advertising Head,
Michael Ngugi, are named as the respondents alongside NMG.
However, NMG in response denied breaching Wanjigi’s rights in any way
simply because the businessman waded into public space and as such, his life
became important to the public.

The paper says the photograph in the obituary appeared to be the
businessman’s but the names were of a different person, one James Richard
Wanjagi.

Meaning though it accepts the photograph appears to be
Wanjigi’s, the name on the obituary advert is not his.
