Former Nairobi Diaries actress Stacy Vugusta but best known as Pendo was in court over an unpaid hotel bill.
The former reality star is said to have spent a few days at the English Point Marina hotel with an unknown man accumulating Sh330,000 in hotel bills.
The man is said to have abandoned the socialite turned singer.
Appearing before Resident Magistrate David Odhiambo at the Shanzu court in Mombasa on Friday, Pendo is said to have pledged to settle the bill within two days between September 14 and October 7, 2020.
According to the hotel, she raised Sh145,000 but still owes Sh208,000.
The hotel blocked her from leaving but the bill kept on swelling as she could not raise the funds.
It is then that they alerted the police.
The actress denied the charges and was released on a Sh35,000 cash bail or Sh100,000 bond.
Court ordered that she settles the remaining amount before March 15, 2021, when the case will be mentioned.
