Why Koffi Olomide was released from jail a day after been sentenced to 18 months imprisonment.

01 August 2016, 15:18

Nairobi - Despite been sentenced to a jail term of 18 months for physically abusing one of his female dancers at JKIA in Nairobi last week, renowned rhumba maestro Congolese musician Koffi Olomide has been released from prison.

The musician was released on Thursday from jail after serving only a day since his arrest at his Kinshasa home and conviction by a judge in a DRC court.

The veteran Congolese singer was caught on camera assaulting one of his dancers at JKIA sparking public uproar that saw him deported from Kenya and subsequently arrested on arrival at his home country, Congo.

Koffi who was arrested and sentenced to a prison term on Tuesday 26th, was released from prison on Thursday 28th July after the prosecutors granted him bail on the basis that the musician was a renowned figure who is not at flight risk.

His lawyer proved to the court, Koffi couldn’t flee from Congo to seek refuge in another country and that he has a known residence where the authorities arrested him and is a famous music star whose his principal interests are here in DRC. 

The musician can now spend quality time with his family. On Saturday, he tweeted on his social media account, ‘At Home with family. .... Thank you is a word too simple….’
