DCI exhume Jeff Mwathi's body

Detectives are seeking to conduct postmortem on Mwathi's body to ascertain what caused his death.

The autopsy, police said, will be conducted in a tent near the grave on Friday and the remains reburied thereafter.

Government's Chief Pathologist Dr. Johansen Oduor will conduct the autopsy.

On March 10, Interior Cabinet Secretary (CS) Kithure Kindiki directed the DCI boss Mohamed Amin to conduct thorough investigations to establish if a third party was involved in the 23-year-old man's death.

The order came after public uproar as Kenyans called for serious investigations into Mwathi's death.

The DCI would later question the suicide narrative after examining the windows which Mwathi allegedly jumped through.

Police said the window grills were too small for a human being to fit through.

The law enforcement officers also established that there had been a scuffle between Mwathi and unnamed people who were in Fatxo's house.

DJ Fatxo has denied involvement in Mwathi's death, saying he was the one who alerted police after stumbling upon Mwathi's body on the ground of his apartment.

Jeff Mwathi was buried on March 3, 2023 in Nakuru County.
