Lawrence Njuguna, alias DJ Fatxo dispelled rumours that he was denied access to his apartment based in Kasarani, Nairobi on Saturday night, May 20, over the ongoing probe in Jeff Mwathi's murder case.
Speaking exclusively to Kenyans.co.ke on Sunday, May 21, Fatxo's lawyer, Duncan Okatch, affirmed that the differences were brought about by a minor tenancy disagreement.
While breaking down the issue, the lawyer noted that the artist had a dispute with the landlord over security charges.
According to the lawyer, DJ Fatxo had made arrangements to vacate the premises by the end of Sunday, May 21.
"He wants to move out and there is a small tenancy disagreement. Nothing to do with the issues that he has been cleared by the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP). There is a dispute about some security charges and nothing more. He is to move out today," Okatch noted.
A video was doing rounds on social media of DJ Fatxo trying to access his own house to no avail. The singer arrived at his apartment, flanked by his friends, but was not allowed into the premises.
The musician spent more than five hours in the cold while trying to access the apartment before driving off.
Before leaving, the DJ lamented to the media that his life was in danger over the incident.
"I'm tired of all this conflict. I'm a God-fearing person. We have a law and I think when it gets to this point, somebody should be guided. I don't want all this drama. I feel my life is threatened and still somebody is keeping me out of my house from 7:00 pm to midnight. It is not fair," he decried.
The vernacular artiste was cleared of murder charges in Mwathi's death probe after the Office of the Directorate of Public Prosecutions (ODPP) pursued an inquest over the matter.
Through his lawyer, DJ Fatxo thanked the DCI for absolving him of the charges - terming that they exhibited great standards of professionalism, independence and focus despite the public perception.
"It is clear that there is no single shred or iota of evidence to suggest any remote criminal culpability by our client or suspicion thereof.
"In fact, it is very clear that our client was not even at his house at the material time that his friend, Jeff Mwathi met his death," the statement read in part.
