Jeff Koinange faces fresh contempt of court charges after a warrant of arrest was issued this afternoon.
A court sitting in Nairobi’s Milimani, found that the Jeff Koinange Live Show host had not honored his bail terms and a Sh 100,000 bond was cancelled.
The warrant was issued for failing to attend court on Monday morning. Senior resident magistrate Maisy Chesang who was to hear the case, ordered Koinange’s immediate arrest.
Last week, the Peabody Award Winning journalist was arrested at his home and charged with contempt of court last week, was released on a Sh100, 000 cash bail after he failed to appear in court over a defamation suit.
Koinange was charged along businessman Tony Gachoka for discussing a case on TV despite being ordered not to.
The lawyers last week managed to secure Koinange bail and said he would not abscond court sessions.
Political analyst Tony Gachoka was however present in court on Monday.
Koinange and Gachoka were sued by business tycoon Jimi Wanjigi for allegedly linking his firm, Kwacha Group of Companies, to the Anglo-Leasing scandal.
They allegedly uttered defamatory statements linking the company to the scam during Koinange’s TV show in May 2014 and March this year.
