  • Police were searching for Collins Moi, son of Jonathan Moi, over an unpaid bill totaling Kshs 100,000

    According to Nation, his girlfriend Marsha Amario was detained at Kitale Police Station on Thursday and later released on Friday after the intervention of a senior member of the family.

    "He told me he was taking me to Kitale since he had a birthday surprise for me. All along I knew he was the one paying for everything only to find myself in this situation," she lamented.

    The hotel administrators stated that they had no choice but to seek the help of police to settle the bill.

    The two lovers had checked into the hotel on December 29 at 5pm for a short stay, as part of Marsha's birthday celebrations.

    After five days, when the hotel management told him to sort out the bill to avoid being denied services, he sneaked out leaving the girlfriend stranded.

    "We tried to engage Collins to pay the bill when it was manageable but he responded that he will pay the following day," regretted Timothy Simiyu, a manager at the hotel.

    On Tuesday, Marsha had called via the hotel phone and Moi responded that he would send a friend but that didn't happen. On Wednesday, he was unavailable on the phone when his girlfriend tried to reach him.

    Collins denied abandoning his girlfriend stating that he just left to finish up some things that were pending.

    He claimed that he had lost his ID and ATM card and I was sourcing for money from friends to clear the bill.
