Daniel Arap Moi is popularly known to Kenyans as 'Nyayo', a Swahili word for 'footsteps'. , that Gicheru had received favours from officials.
According to the BBC, Gicheru was originally awarded KES2.5m (GBP19,000) in 2000 but has subsequently argued that he deserved USD400,000 (GBP225,000) in compensation to reflect his standing in society.
Kenya's Court of Appeal found in favour of Gicheru on Friday (14 October) but ruled that Morton should be made to pay compensation of KES6m (GBP45,700) rather than the amount requested Gicheru.
Morton, who is best known for his biography of Princess Diana, has also completed biographies of celebrities including pop singer Madonna and England footballer David Beckham and his wife Victoria.
