Kikuyu gospel artist Paul Mathenge, better known as Dishon Mirugi, contradicted police reports in the probe of Nakuru-based pastor Elizabeth Wanjiru, who was found dead in his (Mathenge) house in Kasarani, Nairobi County.
The musician, who recorded a statement at the DCI headquarters along Kiambu Road on Sunday, March 19, claimed Wanjiru travelled from Nakuru to Nairobi to bring him a suit but ended up cleaning his house and dirty clothes.
The artist alleged that at the time of the tragedy, he had left the house to run some errands along Thika Road.
Mathenge's statement, however, contradicted a report from detectives from the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) who pointed out that the pastor's visit to the artist's home was aimed at ironing out issues between the duo.
The artist, on the other hand, was positive that justice would be served in the end.
"My God will come through and justice breaks the now drawn bow in my life," he stated according to Nation.
"I will not go down by the designs of the devil since all that God started in my life will never suffer and will surpass evil designs," he added.
It is reported that a week before her death, pastor Wanjiru had contributed Ksh10,000 to Mirugi's church he had recently founded.
According to the police report filed at the Kahawa West Police Station in Kasarani Sub-County, Nairobi, the musician left the pastor in his house but efforts to reach her through phone calls were in vain. Mirugi referred to Wanjiru as his former girlfriend.
“He reported that he left his ex-girlfriend in his house and left for Thika Road and later tried reaching her through the phone, but she was not responding. He rushed back to the house in Maziwa sub-location and found her hanging,” the police report read in part.
The gospel artist is reported to have carried the body from his house to Jacaranda Maternity Hospital but doctors at the facility declined to take the body because she was already dead.
The police report also indicated that Mirugi drove the body to Kiamumbi police station but the police officers redirected him to Kahawa West Police Station.
Her body was later escorted by police officers to Kenyatta University Teaching, Research and Referral Hospital (KUTRRH).
