Police in Kiambu are investigating a case in which Kahawa Sukari Deliverance Church evangelist, died in his house, one day before his wedding.
Kiambu police commander Perminus Muchangi told the Star the matter has been handed over to the DCI as the body of the late Fred Gitau is destined for post-mortem at the Kiambu County Referral Hospital on Monday.
Gitau, who was scheduled to wed at the Deliverance Church Kahawa Sukari on Saturday, was found dead in his house on Friday.
According to family members, Gitau was dropped home by his best couple on Thursday night, and even bed them as he went to sleep.
Tragically, Gitau was found dead on Friday morning with foam oozing from his mouth. The house was locked from the inside.
When the police were called in that Friday, they were forced to use a young boy to get to the deceased house through the window.
After the boy opened the window, the police documented the scene and took the body away.
A close family relative claimed on Monday that Gitau had earlier on Thursday evening texted her sister to tell her that his life was in danger, adding that if anything happened to him her sister should inform the police who was responsible.
The relative said the police had been fully briefed about the message he sent to his sister.
The relative further stated that Gitau was a ‘prayer warrior’ at Deliverance Church and he never drank alcohol and was on the verge of becoming a pastor.
Gitau was to wed Joyce Waithera before the tragic incident happened.
The wedding was to take place at the Deliverance Church Kahawa and later a reception would take place at Cardinal Odunga grounds in Kahawa Sukari.
Family members told the Star that Gitau owned a taxi car which he uses for his cab business and the vehicle was parked outside his house when he was dropped off by his friends.
“Coming from an affluent family and excelling in his pursuits, we are shocked by what might have transpired on the night of Thursday,” a relative said.
