VIDEO: US-based Kenyan event promoter Sarah Okindo responds to Akothee after her rant and rave

Published

on

A US based Kenyan events promoter has responded after controversial Kenyan singer, Esther Akoth, alias Akothee  accused her of mishandling her during a recent performance in  Minneapolis, Minnesota,

The artiste had taken to Instagram, and in a lengthy post, she told of how the lady named Sarah Okindo, who allegedly had invited her to perform and raise funds for the Akothee Foundation, turned around and became nasty to her.

But Ms Okindo is not taking it lying down and she has released all the Whatsapp conversations she had with the musician, as well as various receipts for all to see. She also took to Facebook live with her side of the story [watch below].

We reproduce the Instagram post by Akothee in its entirety here, and Sarah’s response after that:

“Mum I hope all I will say here is truth and God be my witness. You invited me to Minneapolis based on you wanting to promote and support Akothee foundation, My guts refused several times and I told my management I had other commitments in Nigeria on the 2nd, I was forced to cancel my flight to attend mineapolis show, @rumbanotes had paid for return flights on the 31st from Dallas to Paris, you ordered my manager to cancel the tickets and that you will buy new tickets for the 4th from mineapolis, Seattle ParisQA.

Four days before the show ,you changed the venue and asked my manager to make a new poster for new venue which he did, wanted prior dinner with me and your friends and I told my management that I don’t engage before my performance, this was for your own good, you said you had people who wanted to donate for Akothee foundation, and manager told you that we can do that after the show, you came to the airport with your family with just one car, well I love children so it wasn’t a problem for me, but we could hardly fit in, you checked me into a budget hotel, I still kept my calm , I was tired so I slept.

You then got your car back. Drove off and dumped my manager in the cold,with no means of transport to come back to the hotel, mum we were your guests , what happened” Akothee poses.

Why was I supposed to contact you directly after the show, if I dint contact you directly before, To beg for flight back home or hotel, Did you forget that I am MADAMBOSS?

Four Kenyans in US face 80 years in jail over alleged illegal distribution of narcotics

Published

on

A mother and a son are among four Kenyans indicted in US over alleged sale and distribution of Opioids.

The Kenyans are among a total of 10 suspects who allegedly worked under the guidance of one Dr. John Michael Korzelius who is 68 years old and who is a.k.a. “Dr. K,” of Camarillo.

Law enforcement authorities, including special agents with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) Los Angeles, this week arrested four defendants charged in two federal grand jury indictments alleging a narcotics trafficking ring that sold illegal opioid prescriptions for cash through a series of sham medical clinics.

The four Kenyans are Louise W. Mureithi, 69, her son Harrison Maruje Mureithi, 42, Duncan Muthoni Wanjohi, 23, and Xavier Muduki Mabale, 42.

The charges in this matter are the result of an investigation into ChiroMed, which operated a group of chiropractic, medical and wellness clinics in Los Angeles, Orange and San Bernardino counties. Korzelius, along with other medical professionals, including physician’s assistants, allegedly met with fraudulent patients and provided them with unnecessary prescriptions for drugs, including oxycodone.

Dr Korzelius, who worked for ChiroMed, a group of clinics in Los Angeles, Orange and San Bernardino counties, is charged with the offence of illegally writing medically unnecessary prescriptions at a pain clinic to fake patients who sold the drugs.

According to authorities, Louise, Harrison, and Xavier were arrested on Wednesday and arraigned in US District Court in Santa Ana, California. Wanjohi however,  is yet to be arrested and chaged.

Court documents indicate that Xavier reportedly recruited sham patients while Harrison  and Wanjohi of provided cash to him to pay for the oxycodone prescriptions written to the sham patients.

Investigators say in the last two years, they have impounded 30,737 oxycodone pills and $177,610 in cash, the highest dose of short-acting oxycodone available, and the dose most popular for the drug-abusing population, according to court documents.

They also intercepted a mailed parcel contained a teddy bear stuffed with two bags of oxycodone pills.

Xavier is also accused of assisting fake patients to fill out forms claiming sicknesses to obtain the pills.

The two grand jury indictments  charge the 10 defendants with a variety of narcotics-related offenses, including conspiracy to distribute controlled substances, possession with intent to distribute oxycodone, distribution of fentanyl, and money laundering.

Along with Korzelius, the indictments charge:

  • Justin Douglas Cozart, 42, of Woodland Hills, who operated and supervised the ChiroMed medical clinics;
  • Damoon Joe Navarchi, 33, of Woodland Hills, who assisted Cozart in operating the clinics;
  • Xavier Muduki Mabale, 42, of Anaheim, who is accused of recruiting sham patients to obtain fraudulent oxycodone prescriptions from the medical clinics;
  • Mayra Barrios, 37, of Yorba Linda, who allegedly oversaw the day-to-day management of the medical clinics, including the issuance of fraudulent oxycodone prescriptions to sham patients;
  • Harrison Maruje Mureithi, 42, of Norco, who allegedly coordinated the purchase, collection, packaging, and shipment of oxycodone to buyers on the East Coast;
  • Duncan Muthoni Wanjohi, 23, of Anaheim, who allegedly assisted Mureithi in the buying and shipping of narcotics;
  • Pierre Delva, Jr., 33, a.k.a. “Big Head,” of Medford, Massachusetts, who allegedly provided financing to Mureithi to purchase bulk quantities of oxycodone; and
  • Louise W. Mureithi, 69, of Anaheim, Harrison Mureithi’s mother, who allegedly received packages of cash sent to her son for oxycodone;
  • Majid Nojavan, 42, of Laguna Niguel, charged in a spinoff case from the primary investigation, who allegedly advertised oxycodone for sale on Craigslist, sold fentanyl to an undercover police officer, and escorted the undercover police office to an Inglewood medical clinic to obtain a fraudulent oxycodone prescription.
