Thank you for getting back to me.
I have modified the code to create draft items just to double check there was nothing wrong, as method called is the same there should not be differences in the content. The result is in the attached image. The code uses is can be found bellow:
var eventsManager =
IContent newEvent = eventsManager.Content.CreateContent(
"<p>this is some sample content<p>"
"Test Draft Item"
//get newly created event
IEvent eventItem = eventsManager.GetEvents(DateTime.MinValue,DateTime.MaxValue,
Is it possible that you preview the text of the newly created draft item in the Sitefinity UI, and then when you click edit the editor strips the p tag from the loaded html content?
