Jeff Mwathi Murder: Family Accuses Police Of Cover Up, Insist He Was Killed At DJ Faxto’s House

The family of the late interior designer Jeff Mwathi has expressed disappointment over the manner in which security agencies have been probing their kin’s death. 

Addressing the media at the family home in Njoro, Nakuru County, Jeff’s mother Anne Mwathi noted that she has no hope that investigations being conducted by the Directorate Criminal Investigations (DCI) will bear fruit.

While insisting that her son was murdered, Ms. Mwathi wondered why no one has been arrested in connection with Jeff’s death.

“I believe that my son was murdered at DJ Fatso’s house. He did not commit suicide,” said Ms Mwathi.

She added: “Why should the DCI put me through all this including exhuming the body of my son and there are no arrests.”

Jeff’s mother pointed out that the family has not received a report on the post-mortem conducted after Jeff’s body was exhumed.

“We do not expect the report taken to the DCI will bring results. We did not get the autopsy report yet, we do not know anything,” she said.

On her part, Jeff’s grandmother Teresia Mwathi said they are bitter as a family, noting that Kenya is an unjust country to the poor.

“Tumeudhika na tunaona Kenya haina justice kwa wanyonge… Tunaona Kenyans tuko mara mbili, wanyonge na wenye pesa,” she said.

Teresia Mwathi went on to claim that there was a cover-up in the investigation process.

“Tunaskia kuna rumours kuna watu wakubwa wanashikilia huyo DJ. Mtu amepewa pesa kucover up. Tumeachia mungu,” said the grandmother.

Last month, homicide detectives handling the case disclosed that from their probe, the 23-year-old interior designer was murdered and did not jump to his death as earlier reported.

Detectives from the DCI further said that their investigations, after the scene reconstruction and forensic analysis, point to clear signs of a struggle inside Mugithi musician Lawrence Njuguna alias DJ Fatxo’s house.

The Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) has since forwarded the file on the investigations into Jeff Mwathi’s death to the DPP’s office for action.
