Akothee Arrested, Taken To Mtwapa Police Station
Richest musician Akothee was arrested by two police officers for endangering the lives of motor bicycle riders.
This was during her road safety campaign to help reduce deaths of boda boda riders by buying them reflector coats so as to avoid night accidents.
Akothee is one of the most influential coast based musician and thus explains the reason why she managed to pay more than a hundred motorists to take part in her little campaign. She is regarded as one of the wealthiest female musicians in Kenya.
The back of the reflectors had been written “Akothee, #MadamBoss” together with Akothee’s social media names. Here’s what she posted on her Facebook page;
Respect everybody’s hustle , we both have bills to pay, I love my youths thanks for the most convenient mode of transport #roadsafety #madamboss loves you , bills don’t choose where & how the money came through, asikuambie mtu , #discipline is the key to success
During the road trip where by the hundreds of motorbikes caused a traffic snarl-up at Mtwapa, Mombasa, a number of motorists might have misbehaved.
This made the traffic police to look into the issue and Akothee was escorted by two policemen to Mtwapa police station.
She was later released and posted on social media that there was no case to answer to. “Hata hakuna kesi, njoo home Mtwapa tule Machunga”
