Mugithi star DJ Fatxo addressed the media for a few seconds while leaving Muthaiga Police Station in Nairobi, where he had been booked for interrogation over a young man’s death at his apartment in Kasarani.
He only let countable words come out of his mouth before entering his car and driving off.
Looking shaken, he appeared to play down the gravity of the matter, saying he is cooperating to deliver justice.
However, Kenyans were not happy after he appear so confident that it was just a matter of time before being cleared.
“I want to thank my fans so much. Let the support continue. We will win this,” he said.
He promised to invite members of the media to a press conference to give his side of the story.
The controversial death of one Jeff Mwathi at the musician’s house on the 10th floor of Redwood Apartment has sparked a national uproar. His body was found on the ground floor. Those who were present claimed that he committed suicide by jumping out from the window.
Reports that the singer conspired with authorities to conceal the truth were received with anger that resulted in a national outcry.
The incident had been described as suicide, but the narrative changed after blogger Simon Mwangi Muthiora shared fresh details that suggest murder.
His expose raised pertinent questions that the police might have ignored while processing and clearing the scene.
For instance, he questioned why the police believed DJ Fatxo and his friends’ version without digging up much.
Also, the state Jeff was in when his body was falling has become a big subject. From Muthiora’s leads, Kenyans want to know whether he was conscious or not.
Detectives moved in after Interior Cabinet Secretary Kithure Kindiki ordered the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) to open a new file so that the real cause of death could be established.
