The story of DJ Fatxo and Jeff Mwathi has recently captivated many people’s attention. While the two may have seemed like unlikely acquaintances, they were brought together by a mutual friend, Ms Faith Mutanu.
Sources familiar with the situation indicate that Mutanu played a crucial part in connecting the two individuals. She was not just a close friend of Jeff’s but also had a long-standing association with DJ Fatxo.
Although the exact connection between the two individuals has been obscure, it is thought that DJ Fatxo possessed an apartment called Redwood Suites located on USIU Road in Nairobi, which Mutanu frequently frequented. Furthermore, the DJ owned another property in Tatu City, situated in Ruiru, Kiambu County.
The ambiguity surrounding their relationship took a sinister turn when Jeff Mwathi was discovered deceased in DJ Fatxo’s apartment located in Roysambu, Kasarani Sub County. Although it is not evident who erased Jeff’s social media profiles after his demise, law enforcement authorities have excluded suicide as a possibility and have commenced a murder inquiry.
“The first phase of the investigations included interviewing of the first cluster of witnesses in the case, forensic examination of the scene and retrieval of CCTV footage that captured the deceased’s last moments,” a statement by the DCI read in part.
It further revealed a second phase of the investigation where several persons of interest in the case will be interrogated and appropriate recommendations made before being forwarded to the office of the Director of Public Prosecution (ODPP).
Mutanu, who sold designer shoes, had contracted the services of Jeff, who designed her shop on the outskirts of Roysambu. So good was Jeff’s work that he ended up being her manager, and the deceased could market the business on his social media accounts.
The DJ and Jeff met at Mutanu’s shop in November 2021, where Fatxo bought a pair of shoes. A photo of the meeting shows the two men seated next to Ms Mutanu, all smiles. A mutual friend between the three said that Ms Mutanu, who is engaged in business, was also close to DJ Fatxo.
