The High Court in London has ordered Reginald Mengi, Tanzanian media tycoon, to pay more than a million euros in legal fees to a British blogger. Mengi sued Sarah Hermitage for libel after she used her blog to explain how threats and harassment forced her to leave her farm in Tanzania - a farm she had purchased from a Mengi family member. A High Court judge found Mengi had "encouraged or permitted" a hostile and defamatory coverage in two of his Dar Es Salaam newspapers, The Guardian and Nipashe. Hermitage, who now lives in Canterbury, England, spoke to RFI.
