Relieved! DJ Joe Mfalme speaks out after being cleared of murder case

Popular spinmaster Joseph Mwenda alias DJ Joe Mfalme has welcomed the outcome of investigations conducted by the police on the murder of an officer attached to the Directorate of Criminal Investigations.

DJ Mfalme and his crew had been linked to the brutal death of Felix Kelian Kitosi, following an altercation that occurred after the latter hit his motor vehicle from the rear within Kikuyu Town.

For the last 14 days, the entertainer and his crew have been behind bars at Muthangari Police Station, until today, Monday, April 8, 2023, when they were released unconditionally.

“We are relieved and do welcome the outcome of the investigations carried out as they have exonerated DJ Joe Mfalme and his team, Eric Kariuki and Simon Wanjiru,” part of the statement read.

“As a result of the outcome of the investigations, the three have been unconditionally released today by the court sitting at Kibera,” the statement added.

The entertainer said that they had further asked their legal team to follow up with Allan Ochieng’s case and provide legal assistance.

The DPP directed in a letter that Mr Ochieng is charged with the murder of the officer.

The rest who had been accused alongside him including DJ Joe Mfalme’s team and three officers Khadija Abdi Wako, Sammy Cheruiyot Rotich and Agnes Kerubo have been turned to state witnesses.

The released team had been nabbed by the police on diverse dates between Friday, March 23 and Saturday, March 24. This happened just a day after the detective died while undergoing treatment at Nairobi West Hospital.

A medical report which was shared with the media showed that he had been admitted to the hospital with severe abdominal pains and was unable to urinate for close to four hours.

The deceased after being involved in the accident was arrested by the three officers who booked him at Kikuyu Police Station.

They could later be joined by the DJ’s team which was allowed to leave.
