Trending entertainer Dj Fatxo is fully cooperating with investigators into the death of Jeff Mwathi, his lawyer has said.
Fatxo was named as a person of interest by authorities, and his lawyer Charles Mugene said that the DJ-cum-musician always goes for the summons.
"My client is cooperating with the police in investigations. He has cooperated with the police in all the summons from the DCI over the matter that happened on Feb 22, and he is being given legal advice to fully cooperate every time with the investigating authority."
Jeff Mwathi died on February 22, at an apartment building where Fatxo lives. The matter was only highlighted on Wednesday, March 8.
This was the same day that the young man was being buried. Jeff's mother Ann Mwathi spoke in her home in Njoro in Nakuru County where she recalled how her son was a happy person.
She told of their conversations about their plans to reunite in Qatar where there were job opportunities.
"He used to make me so happy I would tell him to come and work here, it's not to help me but I want you to make money ujisaidie so that you can make money and live life."
The last video that Jeff Mwathi took in Dj Faxto's house shows us the group hanging out chatting and having fun.
Jeff turns the phone around to show us how the house looks. We see a well-furnished house and a kitchen in the background.
We see the Dj sitting on top of a couch talking while two ladies watch the TV. They also have bottles of alcohol and soda on the tables in front of them.
The phone to the deceased is now in the hands of DCI Kasarani. According to a report by Inooro TV, Jeff Mwathi 23, was contacted by DJ Fatxo for some interior decoration work in his shop.
The excited Jeff called his mother who lives in Qatar in voice notes shared online, to announce to the good news and also request some money.
Later he updates her about his movements including his nice outfit to meet Fatxo. He told his mother he will send her a picture together with Fatxo to show her how nicely he was dressed.
He also shows her a video inside The DJ's house where other people are invited to hang out in the house.
Kenyans have reacted to the death of the young man with questions about the events leading to Jeff's death plus Fatxo's possible role in the death.
