Amira issues demand letter to woman who defamed her

Jamal Roho Safi’s ex-wife Amira has sent a warning to a woman whom she accused of defaming her on social media.

Through her lawyers, Amira said the woman, Irene Mwende Mutie, had on diverse dates, posted ‘highly defamatory’ sentiments which were accessible to millions of people.

Amira’s legal team further stated that as a result, their client had lost business.

They further accused Mwende of threatening Amira, adding that her posts were ‘reckless and unethical.’

“This woman has bullied me on Facebook for long and I am tired. I have more than 15 screenshots of different things you have been writing about me.

“I hope you were ready to be sued for defamation. Her socials are the life of Irene and she has 100 pseudos. I hope you are aware that the letter has been sent to KEBS (her place of work) Since you have blocked my lawyer on whatsapp, hayaa vuta stool uisomee hapa,” wrote Amira.

Mwende was instructed to draft an immediate apology (addressed to the same social media platforms they emanated from), failure to which, legal proceedings will be instituted against her.

Social media bullying and defamation has been a hot topic in recent years and some celebrities have taken legal steps against those who have tarnished their names.

In July 2022, Faith Makau, better known to her followers as Amber Ray, reported a social media user who went by the pseudonym ‘Madollar_mapesa’ for defaming her.

Kazi Advocates LLP wrote to the DCI on July 5, 2022, calling for investigations into a number of Instagram posts shared on or about June 24, 2022, that portrayed Amber Ray as a con artist.

In a demand letter seen by Standard Entertainment, Amber said that Mapesa, through his posts, suggested that they were in a romantic relationship, portrayed her as a beggar and prostitute, and made derogatory remarks about her body.

Amber is also said to have been ‘extremely upset’ that Mapesa dragged her son’s name into the mess and asked him to publish an apology within seven days of receiving the demand letter.
