Diana Marua wife to celebrity gospel singer Kevin Kioko alias Bahati is embroiled in an ugly scam involving one company, LimaVest dealing with the sale of land.

Diana a few days ago went public saying that she is not part of the alleged scam.

She narrated that LimaInvest under the directorship of a couple Waweru Kuria and Shiku Waweru approached her in mid-2020 with a brand ambassador proposal to which she agreed.

The company was selling arable land for pineapple farming in Malindi and as her ambassadorial job dictates, she went ahead to market the firm.

Diana, however, admits that she erred in doing this yet she did not visit the site.

“Just like any other client I committed myself to popularising the business even before visiting the site. This was the First Mistake I made,” she acknowledges.

She adds that she did the marketing and customers trooped in due to the trust they had in her and even paid for land without going to see it first.

“However, like I always do, I give the Best Marketing possible to all My Clients. I was Delighted to attract Customers to buy land from them majorly from my following on Social Media and Fans from My YouTube Page. Some Fans went an extra mile to send Money to @Limavest_ even without seeing the Land being Sold out of the trust they had in me,” she went on.

Diana says a red flag was raised when one client, Jennifer from the US made a video call explaining that she had bought three acres and but was yet to get her title deed.

She sent her brother to see the land but was allegedly told that the title deed was still being processed.

“Prior to the site visit, #Limavest had lied to #Jennifer that her Land was already planted with Pineapples and the Title Deeds were being processed,” she says.

She adds: “To my followers, I apologise for not doing my due diligence to Confirm if the said Land had the right Documentation by the Time I was Making the trip to see the “LimaVest project” in MALINDI.”

In response to the claims, LimaVest’s director Shiku termed Diana’s allegation unfounded.

“To our dear clients and public in general, it is unfortunate that Diana Marua decided to post on social media such a damaging statement before confirmation of facts.”

The firm added that clients have pulled off after Diana’s claims.
