Wendy Waeni’s ex-manager Joseph Mwangi alias Joe was on Tuesday released on a cash bail of Ksh.100,000 or Ksh.200,000 bond after denying charges of forging a letter purported to be from Interior CS Fred Matiang’i.

Mwangi has been in custody for the past one week to allow police to complete investigations into claims that he threatened Wendy’s mother Magdalene Syombua.

He was last week charged with forging a letter from CS Matiang’i on August 13 and sending it to the complainant Wendy’s mother.

He denied the charges before Chief Magistrate Francis Andayi at a Milimani court last week.

Joe Mwangi came under pressure following allegations that he stole from the child and her mother.

During an interview on Citizen TV’s JKL show, Waeni alleged that she had not received a single penny for her performances over the past five years.

“I’ve been performing all over the world, and right now I live in Huruma because of Joe Mwangi. I’ve performed in Rwanda, Germany, and China… and I’ve not got even a single penny. My mum is really suffering right now, she sells sweets, I live in Huruma in a single-room with her,” she said.

The manager however rubbished the allegations and accused her of ‘reading from a script.’

He further accused the mother of mismanaging funds they had received from her performance in Rwanda.

The mother rejected his claims saying Mwangi only gave her a little money from what he got from prominent individuals to help Waeni.
