Pastor Kanyari breaks his silence about slain sister, Starlet Wahu – Exclusive

Pastor Victor Kanyari has broken his silence following the tragic death of his sister, Starlet Wahu, also known as Icey Wife.

In an emotional statement to Nairobi News, he expressed profound grief over the loss, highlighting her achievements and the family’s shock at the unfolding tragedy.

“I am heartbroken; she was doing so well in life. We last met on Christmas, and on December 31, we spent time together at home. We had not seen the man before. We learned about him after her death. This is so tragic for us, the family, and even her friends. May her soul rest in peace,” Pastor Kanyari shared.

Starlet Wahu’s life was cut short, and she is set to be laid to rest today, January 6, at her parents’ home in Kamulu.

The Industrial Area Police Station has apprehended a suspect, John Matara, in connection with her murder.

Starlet, a prominent figure in the beauty world known for her designer clothes and shoes business, shared glimpses of her vibrant life on social media. Her posts celebrated personal achievements, fashion sense, and zest for life.

The last video post on December 27 showcased her in a bodycon dress, expressing her love for life. Her online presence resonated with messages of self-improvement and gratitude for life’s blessings.

The tragic incident unfolded when law enforcement received a distress call from the building’s manager, reporting a murder at Starlet’s apartment. Upon entering, the police discovered her lifeless body in a pool of blood, showing signs of a swift demise.

Investigations revealed that Starlet and a male companion had rented the apartment for a night out. Various items, including an HIV testing kit, used condoms, clothing, a mobile phone, alcohol, and a knife believed to be the murder weapon, were recovered from the scene.

The suspect, who had sustained a stab wound, was traced to a local hospital in Nairobi, where he was promptly apprehended.

As authorities continue their investigation, questions surrounding the motive behind this tragic crime remain unanswered. The community mourns the loss of a vibrant entrepreneur as they seek justice for Starlet Wahu.
