Karen Nyamu, a Nominated Senator in Kenya, has accused officers at the Kasarani Police Station of covering up the murder of Geoffrey Mwathi, an upcoming designer also known as Jeff. Speaking at a ceremony at Kianyaga Boys High School, Nyamu, who has been involved in the case since Mwathi's death, said any officers found liable must be investigated. Mwathi fell to his death from the 12th floor of the Redwood Apartments in Nairobi on 22 February, according to police records.
Investigators from the Directorate of Criminal Investigation’s homicide unit are reconstructing the scene, while DJ Fatxo, a Mugithi singer who was with Mwathi at the time of his death, is also set to be questioned. DJ Fatxo has denied any involvement in the incident. At least five other people who were in the house when the incident happened are also set for further questioning.
Nyamu attended Mwathi's burial, where she was introduced to the crowd by Mugiithi musician Samidoh, who is Mwathi's uncle. Nyamu has been vocal about the case and has previously called for justice for Mwathi. Kasarani OCPD Purity Wahome declined to speak on the accusation when contacted by the press.
The case has drawn public attention in Kenya, with many calling for justice for Mwathi. The deceased was an upcoming interior designer with a growing social media following. His death has sparked a debate on the safety of individuals, particularly the youth, in residential buildings. The ongoing probe has also highlighted the need for accountability among law enforcement officers and their role in ensuring justice for all.
