R&B singer from Kenya, Otile Brown is frustrated after losing his two laptops in Tanzania at the Julius Nyerere International Airport.
The Kenyan musician, however, did not reveal the value of his missing electronics in the land of brains.
“So kwenye airport ya Julius Nyerere Tanzania nimeibiwa Mac/laptop mbili ila walinzi nawatoa huduma wamekataa kutusaidia ndani ya masaa matatu. Wamektaa kuchunguza kwenya cctv. Wametungusha mda. Longest night of my life.
“Yani wanakataa kutoa huduma wakati ku trace laptop zikiwa tu hapo karibu. Tumetoa hadi report ya police ambayo ndio utaratibu ila wakakataa,” posted Otile.
[So I lost two MacBook laptops at Julius Nyerere Airport in Tanzania, but the security guards refused to help us for about three hours. They refused to confirm the CCTV footage despite tracking the laptop.]
Otile questioned the core of the guards if they cannot help when they need it most.
“Kwani security kazi yake ni gani kama hawawezi kukusaidia? Mimi kama mpenzi wa nchi ya Tanzania nimeumia sana. I need a lawyer. I would have retrieved the laptops tonight, but it’s like they wanted us to lose them. Sad,” concluded Otile.
[Why do we have guards if they can’t help us? I love Tanzania but I have to say I suffered a lot.]
Otile has joined the list of Kenyan musicians who have lost their value in a mysterious environment.
Bien-Aimé Baraza of the Sauti Sol group, for example, lost his phone and car keys after the New Year’s show on January 1, 2022.
