Entrepreneur Anerlisa Muigai

Keroche Breweries heiress Anerlisa Muigai has finally addressed a leaked screen grab that was shared of her requesting friends to help her raise funds amounting to Sh3 million for her fiancé's bail.

According to the leaked chat Anerlisa's fiancé, Josiah Kariuki, CEO of Silica Booster Limited (SBL), was charged on May 6, by the Milimani Anti-Corruption Court for allegedly manufacturing, distributing, and selling substandard fertilizer.

A move Anerlisa claims is propaganda from his competitors who are trying to sabotage his business.

Josiah who was implicated in the distribution of counterfeit fertilizer was charged with 7 counts which included conspiracy to defraud, altering false documents, as well as applying a standardization mark to a commodity that does not comply with Kenyan standards and others laws. 


Trouble ensured once his bail money was set to Sh3 million from the expected Sh1 million that allegedly the Nero Water CEO knew they were supposed to pay.

In a bid to compel her friends to help raise about Sh. 1.2 million as Josiah's friends had raised Sh. 1.8 million, Anerlisa promised that the money raised would be refunded once her man's bank accounts were unfrozen.

Reacting to the leaked chat,, Anerlisa took to her socials where she started by confirming that yes she was in a fix following her man's bail being changed unexpectedly as seen in the screen grab shared by a blogger on X.


She went on to highlight her disappointment in the betray noting that the said group where the the leaked chat had come from has only six members, making it easy for her to dissect and figure out who the mole that leaked the conversation was.

"When you thought you had real friends then boom, a blogger sends you a screenshot from a very enclosed group. Tomorrow could be you. At least I know I cannot count on everyone and that's okay. And yes we managed to get out without your help. We good. #God First," part of her post addressing the issue read.

Accompanying the post, the entrepreneur shared a meme that cautioned people on how to tell the difference between fake and real friends.

"Fake friends are like shadows: always near you at your brightest moments but nowhere to be seen at your darkest hour. True friends are like stars, you don't always see them but they are always there," the quote read.
