A fresh twist has emerged after a Kenyan lady, Bella Bronislavia admitted in court that she was advancing loans to Edwin Obi Okoye.
Appearing virtually before Magistrate Derrick Kutto at Kibera court, Bella Bronislavia admitted that she had loaned Okoye Ksh 31 million to invest in his business and would pay later.
She also clarified that she never had any sexual relationship with Okoye but were only friends.
In documents presented in court, Bella transferred the amounts to the business accounts of Okoye, which amounts to Ksh 30 million.

Bella was at pains to explain to the prosecutor why she opted for the criminal route instead of the civil route yet she admitted to lending the money to Okoye.
She also told the court that she received loan repayment of Ksh 500,000 from Okoye
In December 2020, the media was awash with claims that Okoye had swindled Bella, her lover, Ksh 31 million.
Bella has now clarified in court that she was never conned any monies by Okoye but voluntarily lent the money to him. She also made it clear they never had any sexual relationship as earlier claimed by a section of the publications.
