Ringtone arraigned in court for attacking wazungu

Gospel singer Ringtone Apoko was charged with assaulting five foreigners and damaging their property on Tuesday, July 25, 2023. He was arraigned in court alongside five other suspects, who all denied the charges.

The six suspects were accused of assaulting Kongkong Paulino, Gabriel Paulino, Stephen Gatwech, John Paulino, and Chuang Emmanuel at their residence in Lang’ata, Nairobi, on July 21, 2023. They were also accused of damaging chairs worth Sh5,000 belonging to the victims.

The prosecution did not disclose the motive for the alleged assault.

The suspects were released on Sh50,000 cash bail and a surety of the same amount each.

This is not the first time Ringtone has been in trouble with the law. In 2019, he was arrested for advertising to the public that he was desperately looking for a wife. He was also arrested in 2018 for “prostituting and causing confusion at Cooperative University” while on a similar mission.

The case will be mentioned in court on August 15, 2023.
