Victor Wanyama Sues Menengai Oil for Image Use
Victor Wanyama is suing Menengai Oil Refineries for using his image to allegedly market their brands, without his consent. The Harambee Stars captain claims that Menengai Oil posted a photo of him, alongside two others, wishing team Kenya success during the just concluded Africa Cup of Nations game. However, Wanyama believes the tweeted image was used to promote the company’s products saying, “If the message was meant for the whole team, photo comprising the whole team could have been used”. Menengai Oil is yet to issue a response regarding the claim.
