  • Purity Wangechi, first-year student at the Kenya Institute of Mass Communication (KIMC) whose body was discovered on Friday, May 13, received text messages and screenshots on Instagram from an anonymous person, sources privy to the matter have revealed. 

    Her friend, who spoke to the media and sought anonymity, intimated that the deceased received texts from an anonymous person who urged Wangechi to help her recover money from VDJ Flex- Wangechi's boyfriend and the main suspect in the murder. 

    It later turned out that the texts came from a lady who had been allegedly conned Ksh70,000 by the DJ.

    "How could Wangechi help if she did not know that there was a sum of Ksh70,000 mixed in between her boyfriend's life?" Wangechi's friend posed. 

    Angered by the discovery, Wangechi enquired about the allegations through a text message sent to her boyfriend- claims that he did not dispute. 

    The friend also revealed that the DJ admitted that he had been hiding a lot from her and wanted them to talk when she went to visit him the following day. 

    On Friday morning, Wangechi had made plans to get her belongings from her boyfriend's place in Kirigiti, Kiambu county. She, however, passed by the National Transport and Safety Authority (NTSA) in order to get her Driving License, accompanied by her friend.

    The two then proceeded to Odeon in Nairobi CBD whereby Wangechi boarded a matatu heading to Kiambu. 

    According to the friend, the plan was for Wangechi to be back in Nairobi by 5.30 pm but that did not happen. 

    At around 7 pm her friends became suspicious of Wangechi's absence and tried to reach her to no avail. They decided to call the DJ who answered his phone and allegedly informed them that they were heading to Naivasha. 

    The friend intimated that the deejay denied them the opportunity to speak to Wangechi whom he claimed was next to him. Wangechi's friend revealed that eight hours later, her friend's body was found in a thicket in Kiambu.

    Among the recovered items include the driving license she had picked up that Friday as well as personal belongings that she was to pick up at her boyfriend's house.  

    On Sunday, May 15, detectives arrested the deejay alongside two other suspects, suspected to be his accomplices. 

    The body currently awaits postmortem as detectives continue with the investigations and the suspects are set to be arraigned.
