Former Nairobi Diaries actress, Stacey Vugusta alias Pendo has opened up on her experience with hard drugs.
During a past episode of Nairobi Diaries, Pendo was said to have been busted by her colleague, Bridget Achieng’ while using cocaine.
After denying that she has ever used cocaine, the actress has now confessed to using it, however, claiming that she was just trying it at the time.
“Experience is the best teacher. Things happen in the industry and you try things out. She probably just saw me one day trying and she decided as well. I tried it but it is not my thing,” Pendo said.
Pendo added that she stopped using the hard drug, noting that it was expensive for her and it messed up her life to a certain extent.
“It was wasting my money. It is an expensive and meaningless lifestyle that doesn’t help your creativity,” the actress noted.
In October 2020, Pendo was arraigned in a Mombasa Court over an unpaid hotel bill amounting to KSh 208,000.
The Shanzu Court heard that the actress had accumulated a total bill of KSh 330,000 at the English Point Marina hotel and was only able to raise KSh 145,000.
She committed to clear the balance within two days on September 14 but she was not able to clear the bill within the agreed timelines forcing the management to block her from leaving the hotel.
Two weeks later, Pendo was still not able to raise the money and the bill continued to accumulate forcing the management to report her to the police.
