Police looking for Social Media Strategist after “Vandalism Case at popular Hang-Out joint”
Social Media strategist Christine Akinyi is in trouble with the law.
Sources claim that DCI officers at Muthangari Police Station have been notified of a vandalism case at Nabo Bistro caused by Akinyi and ordered to hunt for her.
According to a statement by Nabo Bistro’s lawyer, Geoffrey Nyakundi of GNN& Advocates, Akinyi allegedly vandalised Nabo’s property and caused trauma to customers and staff.
According to witnesses, the social media strategist was drunk and disorderly and had to be restrained by Nabo’s security team.
She was eventually shown the door after customers allegedly complained over her behaviour.
Allegedly, this isn’t the first time Akinyi has caused controversy.
Two years ago, sources claim, Akinyi extorted money from a shop owner at Nairobi’s Lavington Mall.
She allegedly billed for services not rendered and thereafter unleashed a scathing social media attack on the lady shop owner.
After the defamation campaign, the lady shop owner closed shop after going into depression.
Nabo Bistro, known for its fine food and ambience, is a popular hang-out for Kenya’s upper middle class.
As for Akinyi, she may just end up cooling her heels in a cold police cell soon.
The demand letter further reads: “Our Clients engaged you as an independent contractor (and not as an employee) to provide social media content strategy services for their business.
“We are instructed that your services were mutually terminated on account of your deficient performance and accordingly advised that your outstanding payment of KES 23,000 would be settled in full on Monday 5th February 2024, when payments to all service providers are processed.
“Subsequent to the communication on settlement of your outstanding payment, on Saturday 3rd February 2024 you trespassed into our Client’s premises at Nabo Bistro in the company of unidentified person whom you claimed to be your younger sister and disrupted the ongoing office work when you both insisted on sitting at the workstations of other employees of Nabo Bistro.”
The demand letter further says: “Take notice that your impugned actions of storming and trespassing into our Client’s business premises on 3rd February 2024, constitute an offence under section 5 of the Trespass Act, Cap 294 of the laws of Kenya which provides as follows:
Trespass with intent to commit an offence or to intimidate, insult or annoy
(1) Any person who—
(a) enters into or upon property in the possession or occupation of another with intent to
commit an offence or to intimidate, insult or annoy any person lawfully in possession or
occupation of such property; or
(b) having lawfully entered into or upon such property, unlawfully remains there with intent
to commit an offence or to intimidate, insult or annoy any such person, shall be guilty of an
offence and liable to imprisonment for a term not exceeding six months or to a fine not exceeding two thousand shillings or to both such imprisonment and fine.”
“Following your refusal to leave upon being verbally requested to do so, you and your alleged sister unlawfully remained therein prompting our Clients to evict you,” it adds.
