Kenya: Mombasa Car Hire Dealer ? Matonya Owes Me

Mombasa based car hire cum upcoming event organiser Said Gangwe claims that Tanzanian singer Matonya is yet to pay him for the use of a vehicle he hired for a day when he was in the coastal city.

Said accuses Matonya of accruing a bill of Sh3000, for the one day car hire and additional of Sh1000 for the driver. The car was used during the shooting of his music video in Malindi.

Word Is has established that the Spare Tairi singer was driving a silver Fielder, KBJ 785G. He hired the car on January 28 and drove it to Malindi where he stayed for a day before leaving.

"I'm revolted by the fact that he could pull this move. He looked like a humble enough fellow, in fact my driver spent the day without food when they were at Malindi," Said told Word Is, "I tried calling him but his phone was switched off."

When Matonya was contacted for comment he said, "I'm unwell and can't comment on anything, once I recover will be able to shade more light on the story."
