When Governor Anne Waiguru was serving as the Cabinet Secretary for Devolution and Planning she moved to court compelling a blog site identified as The Daily Post to pull down an allegedly defamatory story against her. She also enjoined Google in the suit as she argues that the blog was hosted on Google Inc management system known as Blogger which is used by many bloggers to host their blogs.

The case was supposed to commence yesterday but it stalled after the absence of the presiding judge, Justice Weldon Korir who was on a weeklong official duty making him unavailable for the mentioning. However, the case was pushed to June 22, 2021, when the judge is expected to determine the responsibility of Google or other online carriers in general in matters regarding content posted on their platforms by third party users.[Photo courtesy]
