Barely a few days after his traditional wedding with Diana Marua, Bahati has found himself in the news again, this time for something rather unsavory. The gospel singer is allegedly caught up in a police scandal with a man named Thuranira Kathiai.
The man claims that he gave the singer Sh200,000 to start up a business two months ago. However, instead of investing the money, Bahati pocketed it for himself.
Adding on to his accusations, Thuraniara further claims that Bahati is evading arrest and payment by using high raking police officers.
“Bahati obtained Sh200,000 from me two months ago in the guise that we’d make business partners,” Thuranira told local website eDaily.
According to the source, Bahati was arrested on Saturday morning at his home in Ruaka.
“I reported the matter at Karuri Police Station in Kiambu County yesterday (Friday) under the OB number 16/27/10/2017. The said Bahati was arrested this morning (Saturday) at his home in Ruaka. On arriving at the police station, the investigation officer received a phone call from his boss, the OCS, asking him to release Bahati with immediate effect, saying the County Commander had ordered the singer to be released. Bahati was instructed to return to the police station the following day (Sunday) at 2pm.” Thuranira added.
These are serious accusations and Bahati’s manager has come forward to comment on the matter. He insists that Bahati is innocent and that Thuranira is an attention seeker using the singer’s fame to make a name for himself.
Bahati is yet to comment on the matter. What do you think about the said accusations, do you believe them?
