Not stopping there, she also noted how every celebrity was asking for justice for Bamise, a young girl who was allegedly kidnapped by a BRT driver and later lost her life.

She noted that people were asking for justice for Bamise because the offender was a BRT driver.

According to her, this was a double standard on the part of these celebs. She then urged them to use their platforms to speak up.

In her words:

“Ever since the story of a super star musician that hit a lady with his car and ran away broke out, not even one celebrity has said a word because the offender is also a celebrity. For God's sake this lady would have died if help didn’t get to her on time. Thank God she is alive to tell her story by herself, but she is in pains. Let's learn to call a spade a spade. We need justice for her.
