Maxine Wahome Is Not Dead- Accused Of Assaulting Her Boyfriend Asad Khan, Arrest And Charges

Maxine Wahome is not dead and is accused of assaulting her boyfriend and hurting him.

Maxine first competed in autocross at a young age before moving to motocross. She debuted at the Naivasha Safari Rally in June 2022 and won the WRC3 championship. Waigwa Murage, the co-driver, guided her.

On December 13, 2022, Maxine Wahome again made headlines for unfavorable reasons when she allegedly engaged in a love triangle with her 50-year boyfriend, Asad Khan. Due to excessive blood loss from his Achilles, Asad Khan was transferred to intensive care.

GBV activists called for Safaricom PLC and Betika to stop sponsoring them on social media, which has become more common when celebrities are in the news for the wrong reasons.

Is Maxine Wahome In Jail?

Maxine Wahome, a Kenyan rally driver, has been freed on a Ksh. 100,000 cash bail while authorities look into an incident where she is accused of hitting her boyfriend.

In June of this year, Wahome made history when she became the first woman to win the WRC3, only at the age of 26.

The Police asked for her to be held for 14 days while they filed charges against Wahome for causing Asad Khan serious harm, but Magistrate Benard Ochoi turned down their request.

The claims that she is a victim have not been proven, so the court declined to order the media to stop reporting on the case.
