Lawrence Njuguna, alias DJ Fatxo on Wednesday, May 17, penned a letter to Kenyans and Jeff Mwathi's family hours after he was cleared in the murder probe.
In his letter to his fans, followers and the general public, the musician expressed his sorrow to the family of the deceased and acknowledged the emotional turmoil they endured over their kin's death.
He indicated that he was writing the letter to clear his name and reiterate that no charges were preferred against him over Mwathi's death.
"I want to express my deepest sympathies to Jeff's family and friends, and to anyone else who has been affected by this situation. I know that this has been a difficult time for many people, and I want to acknowledge the pain and hurt that has been caused by these accusations.
"While I am relieved to have this behind me, I know that there are still people who may be struggling with feelings of anger, frustration, and disappointment," he wrote.
Further, the entertainer called out a section of Kenyans who had presumed his guilt. He cited instances where he was cyberbullied adding that the accusations affected his life immensely.
Consequently, he urged Kenyans to exercise caution in such situations and allow the relevant authorities to complete their duties before making any accusations.
"I want to use this situation to remind all of us of the importance of not jumping to conclusions or cyberbullying anyone based on mere accusations or hearsay stories.
"As many of you know, I have gone through a very difficult period both emotionally and physically, and I know firsthand how damaging and hurtful it can be to be on the receiving end of false accusations and cyberbullying," he stated.
Fatxo penned the letter hours after it was revealed that the Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions (ODPP) did not prefer any charges against him.
This was after the ODPP noted that the investigations by the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) did not establish any evidence to show that the entertained murdered the 23-year-old interior designer.
ODPP recommended for an inquest be opened instead.
Earlier, Mwathi's family had accused the DCI of colluding with the entertainer to cover the alleged murder of their kin.
“I believe that my son was murdered at DJ Fatxo's house. He did not commit suicide. Why should the DCI put me through all this including exhuming the body of my son and there are no arrests.” Anne Mwathi - Jeff's mother stated.
