    Brookside’s defamation lawsuit against MP Mohamed Ali dropped.

    Published on

    On Thursday, the High Court rejected a petition brought against Nyali MP Mohamed Ali by milk processing company Brookside Limited.

    The MP’s claims that the petition by Brookside is defective and that neither constitutional or human rights were infringed when he made comments against the company were upheld by Justice Hedwig Ong’undi.

    The lawmaker said that Kenyan farmers were still being exploited financially by Brookside Dairy, a milk processing company with connections to the Kenyatta family.

    Uhuru Kenyatta comes here, buys milk for Sh20, boils it, and sells it for Sh120,

    He said this during a public gathering in Nyeri on March 3.

    Brookside brought the complaint before the Milimani legal system in response to Ali’s remarks.

    In court papers, Brookside claimed that Ali’s “hostile statement” meant that the dairy farmers from whom it buys raw milk are being exploited.

    But Ali argued that the action shouldn’t have been filed since Brookside is a corporation and the court’s jurisdiction was improperly used.
