ESTHER CHARGED IN COURT
Ex-TV heartthrob Esther Arunga was locked up today (10/03) at the Nairobi law court cells after she denied a charge of being a member of unlawful society. She spent more than three hours at the basement cells before a cash bail of Sh 20,000 secured her freedom.
Esther was ordered by police to present herself to court where the prosecution accused her of being a member of the controversial Finger of God Church - an illegal society.
She pleaded not guilty and chief magistrate Gilbert Mutembei ordered her to pay the monies to secure her freedom.
Mutembei ordered the prosecution to supply her with witness statements it intends to rely on during trial after Esther said the documents will be useful to her defense.
The case will be heard on April 21.
