Andrew Kibe speaks after arrest over Sh2.5 million loan
He was arrested and charged on Wednesday
In a video he shared on Instagram, Kibe said that it’s true he had been arrested but he was now a free man.
He went on to say that having debts is not a big deal because even most countries across the world have debts.
The Morning Kiss presenter narrated how he had been treated by someone he thought was his friend, noting that he was arrested from his work place and even before they had seen the judge, the story was already making headlines in the media.
Kibe called on people to treat their friends with lenience regardless of the amount of money they owe.
“Kuwa na deni si kitu kubwa lakini sasa akicome kunishika kwa stesheni sasa hio ni ungwana kweli? You guys let me tell you how petty some people can be, even before we’ve seen the judge, the story is already out. The whole story is out… anyway with that being said, I pray that you treat your friends with leniency coz ile mbio nimepelekwa my friend by somebody who I thought was my friend! Nimeoneshwa maneno so please treat your friends with leniency hata kama mtu ako na deni yako,” said Andrew Kibe.
Arraigned in Court
On Wednesday, the radio presenter and vlogger was arraigned in court over the Sh2.5 million owed to one Joshua Weru.
Court documents filed by Mr Weru said that Kibe borrowed the loan seven years ago and it has accrued interest to total Sh2.5 million.
Kibe had initially borrowed Sh215, 000 from Joshua Weru and the two had agreed to have the loan paid back in 18 days with an interest of Sh55, 000 and failure to pay the loan, he would accrue a 7.5 percent penalty of the interest for every four days.
In the court papers, Weru had asked the court to demand that Andrew Kibe repays the money loaned to him and the accrued interest subject to court rates as well as the cost of the lawsuit.
