Under the cover of a date, Makokha is believed to have lured Ambani to her death, with details confirming that the two were in a romantic relationship.

"On the fateful day of her murder, Christine had left the Mwihoko based Kiriri Women's University in the morning, to meet her boyfriend in Githurai town, 15 kilometres away.Detectives have established that it is during this night that the boyfriend turned killer, brutally murdered Christine, by stabbing her on the neck savagely and left her bleeding to her last breath. Makokha then took over Christine’s phone and logged into Christine’s family WhatsApp group. Posing as Christine, he sent a message asking family members to send her Sh87,000 claiming that she wanted to refund her boyfriend (Makokha) the money he had spent to help her settle in the college," DCI gave a briefing.

 According to officers from the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI). Makokha is a repeat offender, accused of murdering his own brother, sister-in-law, and their one-year-old child.
