Babu Tale has been evading cops for several months. Diamond’s manager was finally arrested on Tuesday May 22nd and taken to court.
Babu Tale and his brother Iddi Tale Tale were directed by the court to pay a fine of Tsh250 million or Kes 11 million to a Muslim motivational speaker Sheikh Mbonde sometimes in 2017.
The sheikh accused Babu Tales’ Company Tip Top of using his recorded religious video clips for business purposes without his consent. Diamond’s manager co-owns Tip Top with his brother Iddi.
The court found Tip Top Company culpable and awarded the sheikh Kes 11 million compensation. The court also ruled that in the event Tip Top fails to pay, then its property would be auctioned to get the money.
The long arm of the law
Babu Tale and his brother have not been able to pay the sheikh to date, the two have been playing hide and seek with the court until May 22nd 2018 when Diamond’s manager was finally apprehended.
Babu Tale was presented in court on Tuesday, the case was however postponed because the registrar was not present in court. Meanwhile Tale remains in police custody.
