KENYA Railways Chairman Michael Waweru has moved to the Media Council of Kenya in a bitter war of words with the Nation Media Group.

In a letter addressed to the Media regulator, the former KRA Commisioner General claims that a Sunday Nation expose published on 12th May 2019 defamed him and now wants the nation compelled by the regulator to heal the damage( See attached copy of the complaint.

He said the Daily Nation had started a smear campaign to damage his reputation by purporting that he had a conflict of interest in his handling of the Kenya Railways pension management.

Waweru says the Sunday Nation went against it’s own stipulated regulations that bar its staff from quoting ghost sources.
He accuses the nation of propagating and causing the publication of innuendo, packaged as news.
