This past weekend Kenya’s richest heiress Anerlisa Muigai made news after it was alleged that an ex boyfriend had taken her to court over a 19 million loan she had refused to pay.
The businesswoman remained quiet over the issue until yesterday when she took to Facebook to explain how she was tricked into taking the loan for a friend who used the money for lavish trips abroad and to furnish his house.
The story which ran on a local daily claimed Anerlisa was in debt from a known shylock who had decided to take her to court over the unpaid debt.
She is said to have borrowed the money from one Dennis Mwangeka in the name of an alleged ex-boyfriend Ben Kangangi a man she said she has never dated and as security, she surrendered two cars, an Audi Q7 and range rover e vogue.
In a long post, the lass explained how the two tricked her while lying that they did not know each other.
She narrated how Ben and Dennis had worked together in secret to get her to take the loan on Ben’s behalf and use her cars as security only for the creditor to come back and start haunting her.
“It’s amazing what malice can do to your name in a day. Straight to the point.BEN KANGANGI had been my friend for over 5 years and NOT my boyfriend as stated. We met in a circle of young entrepreneurs who interacted frequently, giving each other leads and support. Ben being brought up from Mathare by a single mum and managed to hassled his way up from Mathare, i respected that. Ben sold cars. I even reffered several friends to his car yard and within 2 years of interaction, I and other friends had even loaned him to expand his car business and he always paid back within a week or two.
One morning Ben called me and told me that he needed 20M for a tender he had secured with the government to supply electrical cables. That evening he also submitted original documents which until now i have not understood how he managed to forge the documents, So I told him i could only give him 7M but for the other 13M, he had to borrow from elsewhere.
2 days later Ben told me that his friend knew a financier but the financer did not know Ben personally. The financer was also known for asking for heavy collateral which Ben did not have and since i had a stronger standing socially and businesswise, i could borrow money on his behalf. So i agreed to met the friend that Ben was talking about and i was introduced to DENNIS MOMBO MWANGEKA and in less than a week ” MWANANCHI CREDIT ” ( which is Dennis’s company ) had given me the whole amount on September 2015 without any security. I also mentioned that i was borrowing money on behalf of Ben Kangangi who i thought everyone knew but Dennis said he did not know him. After three days Dennis called me and said he needed security of two cars, i brought two cars that Ben Kangangi surrendered but Dennis said he would only be content if i gave him atleast one car under my name or my company name and that’s when i gave in my vehicle.” she said
Things took a drastic turn within the second week when Ben ignored her calls every time she wanted to inquire about the loan repayment.
“So in the second week of being given the money is when Dennis started demanding for his money as I had stated to return the money within a week. Ben had promised the same. Right away i started calling Ben but his phone went unanswered, all i was been told is that he was taking numerous trips to dubai as his house which is right opposite village market was being completed and also he purchased a porsche panamera.
In the same week of calling Ben, i was informed that Ben and Dennis had been seen drinking together yet Dennis had told me that he did not know who Ben was. I even tried to call Dennis immediately after been told that and he lied that he was in Eldoret.A friend also send me a clip on Youtube of dennis house being raided years back by police over stolen cars. Straight away i saw something was not right and felt that i got into a trap and decided to take this matter to court to try and save my own money too.” she added
Anerlisa explains how she reported the matter to the police prompting Ben Kangangi’s arrest. He then gave her back five million out of the seven she had loaned him and promised to give her back the remaining two.
He was held at pangani police station till he agreed to sign off the money that she had taken under her name to be under his name and also return Anerlisa’s money which he did agree to sign eventually.
“After a few months Dennis called me and told me to withdraw the case from court as he was going to sort it out.. Bens cars were also returned which made me think Dennis was paid off the money by Ben and truth be told Dennis never called me again since 2015 until the day after my 30th birthday which was January 2018, he started haunting me again. Although Dennis claims to have sent me a demand letter end of 2016 I never received it but i informed my lawyer.” she added
She went on to explain how the two had paid bloggers Ten thousand shillings to twist the article and add lies so as to spoil her reputation.
“One of the bloggers called me last week and told me ” madam hapa kuna story yako na tumelipwa 10k, utatoa ngapi tusiandike hii story” i blocked every blogger including radio presenters who called me and just stuck to my truth.I was not shocked to see the story out because these bloggers had been paid to even add lies and the fact that i had given them a cold shoulder made it worse.” she said
