Singer Diamond Platnumz’s manager Babu Tale will spend more time on remand after he was arrested earlier this week for failing to honor a request by Judge Agustine Shangwa to appear before court.
The arrest order is said to have been issued for Babu Tale and his brother Iddi Tale after motivational speaker Sheikh Mbonde filed a case against them for cashing on the speaker’s works without his consent.
The two were then ordered to pay a fine of Tsh 250 million or Ksh. 11 million to Mbonde but they never honored the order.
Babu Tale had been ignoring the court’s ruling until on Tuesday May 22nd when he was arrested.
He was then presented in court on the same day at 3pm but the case was postponed because the registrar of the court was not present.
On Wednesday morning Babu Tale was once again presented in court but the judge who issued his arrest warrant was not present in court.
It is still not clear when his case will be heard forcing him to stay in remand a while longer.
