Wendy Waeni’s ex-manager Joseph Mwangi will spend five more days in police custody, a Nairobi court ruled on Tuesday.

This is to allow police to complete investigations into claims that he threatened the contortionist’s mother.

Investigators had filed an application at the Milimani Law Courts seeking to hold him for seven days.

They are investigating allegations that he forged a document, purporting it to be from the Interior Ministry.

“Mr Joseph Mwangi Nduta alias Joe whose photos appear below is wanted by DCI Detectives in connection with the forgery of a letter purporting to be from a Cabinet Secretary threatening the complainant- Magdalene Mbele of some consequences,” the DCI said on August 30.

Investigators aver that when Joe learnt of the arrest warrant, he switched off his mobile phones.

Police insist that Joe is a flight risk revealing that he was planning to fly out of the country to London.

Her former manager 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.
