Shay Diva Africa was sentenced to four years in prison for stealing a car from her lover.
The 30-year-old Kenyan socialite was accused of gaining access to tycoon PJ Dodhia Kumar’s TIMs/NTSA account and transferring ownership of the vehicle to herself without following the proper succession procedures.
Kumar, her lover, is said to have died in April 2021 at the age of 61. After it was discovered that Shay Diva had stolen the vehicle, Kamar’s family filed a police report.
The tycoon had only given the socialite the Landcruiser on a ‘use and return basis’ because they were intimate at the time, according to the family.
Shay claimed in court that the Landcruiser was transferred to her without her knowledge and that she discovered it when she accessed her NTSA account.
Diva was found guilty of illegally transferring ownership of the Toyota Landcruiser after being charged with three counts of interfering with the family estate, forgery, and stealing.
On November 30, 2022, she was found guilty, and she was sentenced yesterday, December 5, 2022.
The judge also ordered that the Toyota Landcruiser 200 series be returned to the deceased’s family.
