The video comes at a time the organizer of the event Bridget Achieng had denied reports of Shanty being beaten by bouncers contracted to provide security at the event.



Bridget's Explanation

In a recent interview, Achieng mentioned that Shanty’s case is being investigated by detectives for DCI and she has recorded several statements concerning the same.

“From the day the event ended I have been at the DCI for three days, we were looking for their family, and when their family was found they were throwing blames at me, because they did not have anyone else to throw blames at…” Bridget told Jalang’o TV.

Is it true that the Bouncers beat the kid? Bridget was asked.


She replied “that is a lie, we all go to events na bouncer ukileta ujinga atakusukuma tu…it’s just malice and that’s why the case is at DCI…we took that boy to hospital where he passed on, its my team that took him to hospital”.
