What Led To The Arrest Of Legendary Gospel Singer Rose Muhando
Just in case it passed you, yes, it’s true, Rose Muhando got arrested on last Sunday (4/6/2017)
Debora Mligimba the Singida Police boss confirmed that. The singer was arrested from her Ikungi home in Singida over Kshs 37, 000 ( Tshs. 800,000) This followed after AIC Singida church filled a complaint with the authorities claiming the legendary Gospel singer had refused to pay the money she owed them.
Reportedly, on November 3, 2016, Rose Muhando received Tshs. 800,000 (Kshs. 37,000) from the Chairman of AICT Singida Church choir, Mashala Japhet so that she could grace the AICT Church Choir album launch on 13th November 2016 at the Namfua Singida stadium.
But she did not show up even after getting an additional 6,900 Kshs (Tshs. 150,000) as transport money to travel from Dodoma to Singida for the hyped up event. It’s sad to note that, the East African’s most adored gospel musician Rose Muhando did not refund the money and was allegedly spotted ministering at Kahama in northwestern Tanzania after pocketing the money.
On interrogation, she admitted having received the cash from the Chairman of AICT Singida Church choir and that she did not attend the launch as agreed. She says that happened as a result of having a sick person at home. More-so, she has agreed to pay back the money she received and still urges that her arrest was a case of mistaken identity. She says;
“Yes, the police arrested me on Sunday, June 4, but I wasn’t supposed to be their target. They were looking for another lady whose name is Rose, which is similar to mine. The other Rose is the one who obtained money from the said church in the pretense that she was me’’
So the twist is, why did she agree to pay back the cash but still claims it was a mistaken identity?
