Gospel musician Ambassada now a wanted man in robbery case

Kenyan based Ugandan gospel musician Ambassada, is now a wanted man after jumping bail in a criminal case.

The prosecution on Monday successfully applied for a warrant of arrest against the musician after he skipped a date with court.

“Warrant of arrest is hereby issued as requested,” Lucas Onyina, a Kibera Senior Principal Magistrate stated.

The court heard that Ambassada, who is accused of possession of an iPad allegedly stolen from comedian Fred Omondi Owino of Hapa Kule News TV show, skipped three court sessions.

The musician of the Watoto Inkane hit song was accused of having the iPad valued at Sh65,000 knowing that it was stolen.

He was jointly charged with another suspect Shadrack Musyoka, who is a member of gospel duo B4C (Born For Christ).

In the case, three other people are charged with violently robbing Mr Omondi of household goods and personal documents at gunpoint.

Ambassada, real name Wyclef Wamala, allegedly bought the iPad without knowing that it would land him in the dock.

The prosecution had indicated that there plans to make him a prosecution witness before he absconded.

In the case, Evans Otieno Okongo and Michael Wandera are charged with violently robbing Mr Omondi and four other residents of phones, cash and ATM cards on February 4.

Ambassada was released on a cash bail of Sh40,000 that might be forfeited to the state if he fails to avail himself to court before police pounce on him.
