Jeff Mwathi’s grandmother curses his ‘killers’

The slain interior designer Geoffrey Mwathi’s grandmother has broken her silence, hurling heavy words at her grandson’s alleged killers.

Through a video that is trending on social media, the grandparent repeatedly vows that Jeff’s killers will never have peace.

Wherever the killer(s), go his blood will be following and haunting them, she has said.

“Whether they are on the road or any other place, Jeff’s blood will follow them,” he painfully stated.

As she sorrowfully narrated the pain the designer’s death has subjected the family to, she said she has been pleading to God for justice to be served.

“I tell Jeff, not to ‘sleep’. He should continuously question them why they killed him?”

“When that person who is behind my grandson’s death goes to shower while taking tea, his death should hold them accountable. Wherever the person goes, his blood will haunt the killer(s),” she explained.

Hopeful justice will be served, the grandmother wonders why those who kill others are left to walk freely without taking charge of their consequences.

“If asked, they should be jailed. Why should someone kill another for reaches?” she wondered.

The grandmother, alongside Jeff’s mother and the father, were among the first to record the statement with the detectives from the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) headquarters along Kiambu Road.

The matter was first reported at Kasarani DCI, with the station’s sleuths alleging Jeff’s death was a result of suicide.

The narrative, was, however, ruled out by the DCI HQ following Internal Security CS Prof Kithure Kindiki’s intervention.

Mugithi artist Lawrence Njuguna otherwise known by his stage name Dj Fatxo, is linked to Jeff’s death.

On the fateful day when he met his death, Jeff was reportedly at the musician’s house in Roysambu, a Nairobi suburb.

DCI boss Mr Amin Mohamed, after his office took over the matter visited the crime scene to unravel the possible cause of Jeff’s death.

The designer’s body was also exhumed last week, for further autopsy examination by the government pathologist.

It is now two months since he was murdered, with no arrests made.

Jeff’s death has since caused an uproar online, with Kenyans lamenting on laxity by the investigative and security agencies to act expeditiously.

Nevertheless, DCI through its official socials announced yesterday that the matter is at the homestretch stage.
