Pop star Shakira is charged with tax evasion in Spain valued at Sh1.6 Billion

Pop singer Shakira has been charged with tax evasion by Spanish state lawyers.

The 41-year-old Colombian allegedly defrauded the Spanish taxman out of Sh1.6 Billion by registering herself in the Bahamas, which has zero income tax, between 2012 and 2014.

State prosecutors, who have spent the past year investigating Shakira, filed charges today.

Lawyers acting for the singer are expected to try to settle the case before deciding whether to try to reach a pre-trial settlement if the request is rejected.

Prosecutors allege the performer registered for tax in the Bahamas as part of a plan to deliberately avoid meeting her tax obligations in Spain.

Shakira moved to Barcelona after starting a relationship with Barcelona FC star Gerard Pique in 2011 – but only registered for tax there in 2015.

Official residents in Spain pay Spanish taxes on their worldwide income.

People who spend more than 183 days in a given calendar year in the country are considered Spanish residents for tax purposes.

Tax inspectors visited Shakira’s favourite hairdressers in Barcelona and checked her social media to try to show she spent most of the three years in Spain.

Spanish media said prosecutors’ criminal complaint offered no proof the Hips Don’t Lie Singer had spent enough time in the country to be considered a tax resident.

But it said the rest of the time she spent out of Spain were ‘sporadic absences’ resulting from work commitments, an argument the singer’s defence lawyers disagree with and are set to fight.

A spokesman for the singer said she did not owe the Spanish taxman any money and insisted she had followed the advice of her financial advisors.

He insisted she was ready to co-operate to ‘resolve the differences in criteria.’

The renowned artiste is currently in the hospital as he was involved in an accident days before he was scheduled to perform in Nairobi.

But I’m alive!!!

He continued, “Lost consciousness driving…but two human angels followed my swerving car with their emergency blinkers onto stop traffic ….drove behind me until my car crashed into the middle concrete island.

I remember none of it except those two angels pulling me out of the passenger’s side of the crumbled TOTALED car..airbags deployed…crushed metal and Fiberglas!! I AM ALIVE!!!!”

Donnie added that some of his injuries include a “somewhat mangled, stitches on left thumb, sprained wrist, hurt knee, but I’m still here! God and two angels saved my life! I owe them… I am still here by the grace of God! Thank you, Lord…thank you!”

Former Donald Trump lawyer Michael Cohen jailed for three years

Michael Cohen, the former lawyer to Donald Trump who once said he’d take a bullet for the president, has been given a 36-month prison sentence.

He is the first member of Mr Trump’s inner circle to be jailed over the special counsel’s inquiry into alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 election.

He has pleaded guilty to crimes including campaign finance violations, tax evasion and lying to Congress.

In a New York court on Wednesday Cohen lashed out at his former boss.

The 52-year-old told Judge William Pauley that Mr Trump caused him to “follow a path of darkness rather than light”.

He told the court his “weakness was a blind loyalty to Donald Trump” and that he “felt it was my duty to cover up his dirty deeds”.

The sentencing was related to two separate cases brought by the Southern District of New York and Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation.

Mr Cohen pleaded guilty to campaign finance violations for his role in making hush money payments to women who alleged affairs with Mr Trump.

Mr Trump has acknowledged the payments despite denying the affairs, and called them a private transaction unrelated to his campaign.

He will serve that term concurrently with a two-month sentence he was given for lying to Congress about a possible Trump Tower project in Moscow, a charge levelled by Special Counsel Mueller.

Famous celebrities who were killed by the Illuminati cult over the years (photos)

The Illuminati is a secret society whose activities remain hush hush.

Alot has been said about celebrities being part of this group, and is also alleged to be behind their deaths.

a secret society that is believed to be running the entertainment industry in the United States of America .


The people whose deaths were linked to the secret society are believed to have been spreading a different message which was contrary to that of the Illuminati and what they were striving to achieve in their “New World Order”

Celebs whose death Kenyans have yet to come to terms with

Here are some of the celebrities believed to have been killed by the Illuminati.

Michael Jackson

michael jackson

After his death, so many people tried to explain what happened and wrote articles as well but the question remains, is it truly homicide as stated by Los Angeles County Coroner On August 28, 2009, or something else must have happened.

Michael Jackson one day spoke out against one of America’s music executive who headed Sony Music Entertainment Tonny Mottola, who and I quote referred to him as “A Devil” and some people believe that the issues which were stirring between Michael Jackson and different people in the industry might have led to his demise.

Maybe just maybe he was trying to leave the Illuminati and the way he was exposing people and speaking out was just but the beginning but unfortunately he met his end, after writing different letters to his friends predicting about his death.

Princess Diana

princess diana

Being married into the royal family is a big deal to many, others its a dream come true, to others like the late Princess Diana would not change who they really are .

Diana used the chanceto raise awarenessand advocated ways to help people affected by HIV/AIDS, cancer, and mental illness..

Diana years after her marriage to prince Charles, believed that she was going to be killed and even predicted the manner in which she would be killed as indicated in the letter that she wrote to Paul Burrell.

After her body guard was murdered she believed that it was a conspiracy that would end up with her being the next in line to be killed. it was believed that there was a “Royal Rebel” a conflict among the members of the royal family since maybe she might have upset the order which was established.

Was she also upsetting the Illuminati was trying to achieve by helping out people.

Marilyn Monroe

marilyn monroe

She was known to be a rebel which might have gotten her in trouble. She spent time with those deemed undesirable and even after being warned a couple of times she didn’t care or rather listen to that.

As a result of her movie stardom and great beauty, Monroe came into contact and formed relationships with people of the highest order in the US including the Kennedy’s.

It said that Monroe committed suicide but it is believed that there is more to the story than what is being told. It was known that she was having an affair with Kennedy’s which might be a leading factor to her death. It is also said that a Chicago mafia might have planned her death to try to pass a message to Robert Kennedy telling him to back off against the mob.

 John Lennon

john lennon

The singer, songwriter, and arguably the most influential Beatles died in a mysterious way. The Beatles catapulted onto the American scene, eventually becoming the best-selling band in history.

The most radical of the group was undoubtedly John Lennon, and one only has to look as far as his song “Imagine,” which proposes a world without hunger and war, to realize the threat which he posed the establishment. His desire for change might be the very thing that might have contributed to his own death since he posed as a threat to certain establishments in the industry,that did not want the same for humanity.

‘I have murdered my wife and I am about to commit suicide’ Haunting last words of Nakuru man who committed murder most foul

Abraham Lincoln

abraham lincoln


The most well-documented conspiracy on our list was the assassination of Abraham Lincoln by John Wilkes Booth. A fierce southerner loyal to the Confederacy, Booth murdered Lincoln as part of a larger plan to reinvigorate the defeated South. Not only was Lincoln meant to die, but his Vice President and Secretary of State were, as well. George Atzerodt was tasked with killing Vice President Andrew Johnson but lost his nerve, and was eventually hanged for his participation.

Another member of the conspiracy was Lewis Powell, who attempted (and failed) to kill the Secretary of State William Seward, injuring the secretary, his son, and his bodyguard before being disarmed. He, too, was executed for treason.

Martin Luther King jr

martin luther king jr

Dr.King was a great threat to some of the most powerful men in the wealthiest countries in the world.

He was in constant surveillance since powerful people were afraid of what he might do as he had already captured the attention  of the people.

He was once written to and told to commit suicide instead of his “sins” being exposed to the public.

Near the end of his life, Dr. King had begun to discuss and champion issues that transcended race; issues of class conflict and the importance of solidarity amongst workers. Dr. King would arrive in Memphis to lend support to the Memphis Sanitation Workers Strike, and not long after a man would take his life.

Which when it came to the enlightened of society became a big issue since he only spoke the truth even though they tried to make him seem like a liar.

Many people know the name of King’s convicted killer, James Earl Ray, but few realize that a separate wrongful death lawsuit was filed, and that a jury concluded that there was a conspiracy to murder Dr. King

John F. Kennedy

john f. kennedy

John F.Kennedy was the youngest ever elected president of he United States of America.

His reign of presidency ended before his term was over by him being assassinated.Abroad, Kennedy had to ease rising tensions with the Soviet Union, while at home the demands of equal rights by African-Americans was not going away.

These same ideas of freedom and equality were being espoused by the formerly colonized people of Vietnam and their leader Ho Chi Minh, who aligned himself with the Soviet Union.

President Kennedy had to make a decision: follow the advice of his generals and impede Vietnam’s ability to choose a socialist style government or choose a path of non-intervention.

With different organisations working under cover which are secret societies ,their definition of a “New World Order”was totally different to what an average human being or religious person may term it to be hence they might have planned for the assassination of Kennedy since for him ,he believed in something much more than what meets the eye,that war and conflicts never really solves issues.
