She however never showed up and never communicate to the church’s chairman to explain herself.
The chairman, Mashala Japhet also claimed that they had sent an extra Ksh 6,900 as her transport only for the singer to be spotted in Kahama Northwestern Tanzania carrying on with her ministry.
The singer said that it was a case of mistaken identity and distanced herself from the accusations.
“Yes the police arrested me on Sunday, 4th June, but I wasn’t supposed to be the target. They were looking for a different lady whose name is Rose, which is similar to mine. The other Rose is the one who obtained money from the said Church in the pretense that she was me. I am currently at home after securing a release”. She said during an interview.
