Koffi charged with assault and battery

Filed under: Entertainment,Latest News |


Popular Congolese musician Koffi Olomide has been charged with assault and battery in the capital, Kinshasa, a judicial source has said.

Koffi whose show was cancelled in Zambia after being deported from Kenya has received wide condemnation from many sections of society

The charges come three days after he was deported from Kenya after video footage emerged of him apparently kicking a woman.   Olomide denied kicking anyone and  said he had tried to “stop” a “girl who wanted to fight the dancers I came with”.

Police officers arrested him at his home in an upmarket neighborhood of Kinshasa. The music star was handcuffed and put into a police car. He was then taken to a court building where a prosecutor was waiting for him.

If convicted, he could be sentenced to up to five years in prison. In 2012, he was given only a three-month suspended sentence for assaulting one of his producers.
