Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko has sued The Star Newspaper for defamation after revealing his HIV status.
Through his lawyer Governor Sonko claims that the media company embarrassed him in public over the allegations.
In response to the claims, Sonko termed them baseless and abusive and he has never contracted the virus.
Following the publication, the Nairobi Governor says he has an enormous loss in reputation, dignity, and integrity from the members of the public and his superiors.
Initially, The Star said that they had been given three days to apologize over the article or else face the law.
