By HARRIET WANJIKU

Sheila Wairimu,30 alias Shay Diva Africa, a Kenyan socialite  has been found guilty of stealing  a Toyota Landcruiser V8  that was owned by a tycoon, PJ Dodhia Kumar who  died in April 2021 aged 61.

She transferred the Toyota Landcruiser V8 at only a day after the man’s death which raised questions among the tycoon’s family.

His family filed a complaint with the police after learning that Wairimu had taken the vehicle, saying he only gave it to her on a “use and return basis” because they were in a relationship.

Wairimu  defended herself saying  the vehicle was transferred to her without her knowledge and that she learned about this when she accessed her NTSA account.

She said she has never attempted to illegally transfer ownership of the vehicle.

Chirag Bhatt, a manager of a hardware shop which was owned by Kumar, said Wairimu had consistently blackmailed the deceased that she would disclose their illicit relationship to his wife, who lives in the UK.

Bhatt said that is how she remained with the vehicle until Kumar’s death.

She was accused of accessing tycoon PJ Dodhia Kumar’s TIMs/NTSA account and transferring ownership of the vehicle to herself without following due processes of succession.

She will be sentenced on 5 th December after her mitigation.
