A lady was arrested and detained for over a week after being abandoned by her boyfriend at a high-end hotel.

Hotel administrators said they had no choice but to detain her until the Sh100,000 bill is cleared. According to Skynest Hotel management, Collins and his girlfriend Marsha Amario checked in on December 29 at 5pm and booked themselves in for six days as part of her birthday celebrations.

By the next day the bill had shot up to Sh9,000 and they were advised to make some payments but they did not heed.

“We tried to engage Collins to pay the bill when it was manageable but he responded that he will pay the following day,” said Mr Timothy Simiyu, a manager at the hotel.

After five days, when the hotel management told him to sort out the bill before being provided more services he sneaked out of the hotel leaving the girlfriend stranded.

Last Saturday, he was called by the management and he said he was at Kabarak and that they should treat his girlfriend right as he was sourcing for funds to clear the bill by the following day. The promise was not fulfilled.

Last Tuesday, Marsha called via the hotel phone and he said he was still at Kabarak and that he would send a friend but that didn’t happen.

On Wednesday, he was said to have been unavailable on phone when his girlfriend tried to reach him.

Without any response, the management called the police on Thursday. Marsha was arrested and taken to Kitale Police Station and held overnight.

“He looked like a responsible person. He had so many friends who had surrounded him at the hotel and he bought so many expensive drinks for them,” Mr Simiyu said.

At the station, Ms Marsha said she did not expect her boyfriend to abandon her after bringing her all the way from Nairobi.

“He told me he was taking me to Kitale since he had a birthday surprise for me. All along I knew he was the one paying for everything only to find myself in this situation,” she lamented.

On Thursday, Trans Nzoia West police boss Jackson Mwenga confirmed she would be arraigned.

  77. Betrayal of trust and act of irresponsibility by her boyfriend. I imagine what he will tell her when they finally meet. She should just forget about him and this should serve as a lesson to her and other ladies. Try to know your boy friend well enough..

  78. Stick to your pockets. You must not go to expensive hotel all in the name of birthday celebrations. See the wahala the poor lady is passing through now. Wicked man

  79. Some guys have a very low thinking faculty. How could you abandon your girlfriend in an hotel. And call such lady your girlfriend? Is just too bad

  80. What an irresponsible and callous behavior by the boyfriend. How will he be able to mend the broken trust she had on him. Betraying her in such a manner and public disgrace too. Only him knows what happened and hope this doesn’t separate them because is shameful. Why try to impress someone when you know you can’t afford it. Is a lesson to all of us to live within our means and be content with what we have. Pride and Ego kills.
