Gospel artist Ringtone Apoko is en route to South Africa for further treatment after he was beaten up by popular blogger Robert Alai; and allegedly damaged his car.
The singer has spoken about his departure on Instagram while asking Kenyans to pray for him;
”BREAKING NEWS PRAYERS ARE NEEDED FOR YOURS FAVOURITE GOSPEL SINGER HEADED TO SOUTH AFRICA FOR TREATMENT 🙏 ”
Alai was arrested and detained at the Kilimani Police Station.
Reports have it that the two accused each other of obstruction in a scuffle that began on Loitoktok Road.
Alai and Ringtone met in court to settle their predicaments; but Ringtone was reduced to tears after the Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions recalled the file for further perusal.
Ringtone arrived at the Kibera Law courts in an ambulance while seemingly in pain; with his face and hands bandaged.
During an interview before entering the court, Ringtone maintained the seriousness of his injuries; saying that he would need further treatment abroad.
