Assistant minister Margaret Wanjiru has filed two defamation cases against a media house and its two employees.

Those sued are radio presenters Caroline Mutoko and Felix Oduor alias Mzee Jalang’o and their employer, Radio Africa Limited.

The Starehe MP has also sued the Nairobi Star Limited over an article published by Ms Mutoko on April 19, 2010.

Ms Wanjiru says she was maligned by an article published by the Nairobi Star and a programme aired on Kiss FM.

She is seeking aggravated damages for slander and a full and unqualified apology in the Daily Nation and The Standard.

The defendants have been given 15 days to respond.
