Bonfire Adventures Managing Director Sarah Kabu has finally spoken following a KTN feature on a street couple that they promised to help.
We can’t feed them forever – Sarah Kabu speaks after KTN feature on famous street couple
Tenda wema, nenda zako!
In a message on her official Facebook page, Ms. Kabu said that they kept their promise to the street couple that was an internet sensation and even gave them money to start a business, unlike the story that aired on KTN.
She went ahead to say that the couple was then offered a job in Kericho, but they turned it down.
An angry Sarah then said that she did not like the lies the KTN journalist told on TV without verifying information and nobody should ever ask her to take anyone being celebrated online for holiday again.
“I don't like lies by KTN JOURNALIST the street couple went for the holiday NA photos ziko online... we paid 6 months rent and gave them cash to start a biz. I don't know what else they want we can’t feed them forever! They were also given a job at Kericho and they turned down the offer. Githeri man was ever drunk and his voucher is still open. From now henceforth let me not see anyone tagging me a post to give a holiday to anyone being celebrated online... everyone knows we keep our word all photos online and this KTN journalists blackmail must stop! Am coming there for an interview now,” read Sarah Kabu’s post.
Her words were triggered by a KTN feature that showed how miserable the life of the famous street couple (Sammy Githae and his wife Virginia Njeri) who had returned to the streets.
The street couple accused Bonfire Adventures bosses and the photographer that first discovered them of using them to their advantage. Sammy added that only four months’ rent was paid of the six promised and they did not get the car wash business they were promised.
“He only paid four months rent and after the four months passed things became tough for us, we could not get jobs to pay the rent,” narrated Sammy.
