Overheard: Fidel bails out Oliech

By | April 17th 2009

Just before Morgan Heritage siblings took on stage Dennis Oliech had to borrow cash from Fidel Odinga to settle the outstanding show expenses. It was said Oliech had earlier sent enough cash to two friends to help him organise the show but the money was misused. At the eleventh hour the footballer turned to the Prime Minister’s son, Fidel, who lent him Sh1million. It was also reported that as crowds tried to forcibly enter the show, police had to fire twice in the air.
