Chief magistrate Martha Mutuku has lifted a warrant of arrest on Peter Mwanyalo who had been charged with obtaining money by false pretences.
Mwanyalo who is also known as Peter Blessing is said to have obtained Sh 2,039,000 from Kevin Kioko alias Bahati at EMB records studios in Nairobi.
Mwanyalo is said to have pretended that he was in a position to produce music videos with the studios.
According to court papers, the offence took place between July 4, 2019, and January 5, 2020.
Mwanyalo appeared before the court and denied the charges preferred against him. He was represented by three lawyers.
The court has released the accused person on Sh 500,000 bond and Sh 200,000 cash bail.
Mutuku has also lifted the warrant of arrest against him for missing to attend court on January 23.
An eye witness spoke to Mpasho and revealed how the two were arrested by cops from Central Police.
‘SOMEONE CALLED Producer PAULO, AND SAID HE IS A REPORTER FROM NATION AND THAT HE WANTED TO DO AN INTERVIEW INVOLVING PETER BLESSINGS.
WHEN WE REACHED THERE FOR AN INTERVIEW WE FOUND OUT IT WAS TRICK BY BAHATI TO GET THE TWO ARRESTED.
SHORTLY AFTER WE ARRIVED SOME POLICEMEN CAME AND ARRESTED PAULO AND PETER Blessing.’
