Met in 2018

It all started in 2018 when Goodhatt travelled to Kenya with a mission to help the needy.

She met Wambui who was already running the orphanage in Kisii and they became partners.

The American national then helped her to acquire land on which they built a house that accommodated a number of orphans.

However, in 2020, when COVID-19 emerged, Goodhatt said she was forced to return to the United States and that is when things started going wrong.

She said Wambui started misappropriating the money that was advanced to her and also lied about the number of orphans she was helping.

Assaulted

In her defence, Wambui claimed she had all the documents to account for how she spent the money.

She claimed Goodhatt had only donated KSh 7 million (N25,888,349) to the organisation and not KSh 20 million (N73,966,711) as she claimed.

The pastor added that the donor assaulted her and is fighting to have the organisation handed over to another group.

Goodhatt's lawyer Rodges Abisai said the philanthropist wants Wambui to reimburse her all the money she used in the organisation.
