Former TV personality Louis Otieno has been accused of coercing his late girlfriend Careen Chepchumba to borrow hefty amounts of money to fund his lifestyle.

Hosea Kili, Chepchumba’s father, in a testimony, said the daughter incurred a Sh3 million debt, monies she spent on Otieno’s rent, medical expenses in Nairobi Hospital and in South Africa.

Kili told the court that his daughter also bought Otieno a Range rover after trading in her VW car.

The court also heard that before she was killed, Chepchumba sought restraining orders against Otieno for allegedly harassing and threatening her.

Kili, a director at County Pension Fund, told the court that trouble started when Otieno moved into their apartment as a tenant in 2011 and started an affair with the daughter.

He further said that at first Chepchumba denied the relationship but later confirmed after a trap set by her family revealed that she had been with Otieno at his house until as late as 11pm.

The former TV anchor came out of his house on the said night when he heard his girlfriend being confronted by the father.

Kili also said that after that day Chepchumba started stealing money from him, which was very strange since she never did so.

She later took Sh600,000 from her father’s briefcase and when confronted, Chepchumba said that she had given Sh400,000 to Otieno for his medical expenses.

The court further heard that she had earlier on moved out of her parent’s house to her own apartment, even lying to the family that the house was in Amboseli yet not very far from their home.
