Woman sues plastic surgeon for using her image
A woman has sued a doctor dealing with plastic and reconstructive surgery for using her image to advertise his business without her consent.
Jessica Wanjiru says Davinci Aesthetics and Reconstruction Centre and owner Nang’ole Wanjala are using her images on its official website to market and advertise the facility’s business.
Through lawyer Bemih Kanyonge, Wanjiru says she has suffered both emotionally and psychologically due to the continued use of her images to promote a service and procedure she has never undergone and does not intend to.
“Doctor Wanjala and his facility have refused to pull down the bill boards bearing the images or remove the images from their website. The court should declare that the respondents violated my right to privacy and dignity,” she says.
Wanjiru wants the court to declare the the billboard along the road leading to the Kenyatta Hospital in Nairobi unlawful.
