Troubled gospel singer Rose Muhando is in the safe custody of her three grown-up children, the musician’s friend and Kenyan gospel artiste, Stephen Kasolo, says.
The children are said to have come to her rescue after photos and videos of a visibly weak Ms Muhando went viral on social media.
Ms Muhando has in the recent months been said to be ailing, although it remains unclear what she is suffering from.
Her friend, Mr Kasolo, has often catered for her stay in Eastern region every time she visits Kenya. And even recently, he did, until the children of the “Nibebe” star came for her.
In an exclusive interview with EDAILY Friday, Mr Kasolo said the award-winning gospel musician, 42, is still within the Kenyan borders, even after the Tanzania Music Foundation (TAMUFO), on Thursday, asked her to travel back to Tanzania immediately for “specialised medical treatment”.
“I don’t want to say much about Rose Muhando. She is like a mother to me, and I don’t think it would be prudent if I speak about her extensively on media. Though, what I would say is that she is doing quite fine. Her children traveled to Kenya and took her with them. I haven’t established exactly where she is staying, but I am sure she hasn’t left the country yet. I spoke to [gospel singer] Annastacia Mukabwa, who is really disappointed by the negative buzz and statements made by people about Ms Muhando,” said Mr Kasolo, who has known Ms Muhando for over three years now.
Early this week, Ms Muhando was captured on video receiving divine intervention at Neno Evangelism Centre in Nairobi.
In the now-viral video, Neno lead preacher James Ng’ang’a is seen “casting demons out of the artiste”.
Rose Muhando told Mr Ng’ang’a, that her former manager, Nathan, was responsible for her tribulations after he planted evil spirits in her. TAMUFO, in its statement Thursday, said it will investigate her allegations.
EDAILY continues to keep tabs on this story, as it seeks to get more comprehensive information about the singer, whose cell phone line remains switched off.
