Kenyan socialite Sheila Wairimu well known as Shay Diva Africa has been sentenced to four years in prison for stealing the car of her 61-year-old lover.
According to reports, the socialite was sentenced to four years in prison with the alternative of a Ksh200,000 fine after she was found guilty of motor vehicle theft.
Shay Diva Africa was said to have accessed the TIMs/NTSA account of the businessman identified as PJ Dodhia Kumar and changed ownership of the car to her name without following the due processes of succession.
The National Transport and Safety Authority (NTSA) stated that Shay Diva Africa filed a transfer of the log book by logging into the TIMs account of her deceased lover at 11.45 pm on April 26. The transfer was then authorized at 2 pm the next day, but there were no supporting documents from the owner which caused suspicions.
The family of the 61-year-old lover of the socialite filed a complaint with the police after they discovered that Shay Diva had taken over the vehicle; adding that the deceased gave Shay Diva a Landcruiser on a ‘use and return basis’ because they were in a dating.
Defending herself, Shay Diva told the court that the Landcruiser was transferred to her by her lover without her knowledge and that she learned about it when she accessed her NTSA account. However, one of the five witnesses who testified against Shay Diva told the court that the socialite blackmailed the late businessman.
Kitale Chief Magistrate, Julius N’garng’ar found Shay Diva guilty of intermeddling with family estate, forgery, and stealing. A judgement passed on the case on Monday, December 5, 2022, ordered the return of the Toyota Landcruiser 200 series back to the family of her late lover and a four years jail sentence.
