DJ Fatxo's Facebook post after the death of 23-year-old Geoffrey Mwathi, who lost his life under mysterious circumstances on February 22, 2023, has elicited bitter reactions online.

Mwathi died after falling off from the popular Kikuyu benga artiste-cum DJ's 10th-floor apartment at Kasarani, Nairobi.

A day before the news of Mwathi's death reached the public, the DJ wrote on his Facebook page: "Leo nimeona niwakumbushe the wages of sin is death."

The post generated bitter reactions from his Facebook followers.

Facebook user Nadra Saidi wrote: "You are so inhuman. God will punish you."

While Shiro Mutie wrote: "Mlifanyia Nini uyo boy aki nkt ndio maana uliwacha bibi ukuje utuharibie watoto wetu??? nkt."

"Leo Dio nimejuwa maana ya hii post,,,,,ni sawa tu…safiri salama kijana ya Hanna," Chiiku Winnie commented.

Fredrick-Machee Mungai on his part wrote: "You will never get peace. I urge Kenyan to unfollow you until the young man gets justice."

Mwathi visits DJ Fatxo

Mwathi, an interior decorator, had visited the DJ's house to deliver some interior decor materials for his home and office.

A police statement recorded by the DJ revealed that the two had been together in four different clubs.

They started partying at Bliss Bistro and ended at Quiver's Lounge.

According to footage released by the apartment's management, Mwathi, and the DJ returned to the apartment at 3 am on February 22 accompanied by three unidentified women.

Later, another man believed to be a relative of the DJ arrived in a different car.

An hour later, the DJ left the apartment with the three unidentified women leaving the victim in the house with two other men

Shortly after, the two men are seen inspecting the apartment's parking lot. Within the same period, the DJ's cousin is seen making several phone calls before heading back inside.

Shockingly, seven minutes after Mwathi is seen falling off the building. His uncle told police that the victim was found dead with his pants pulled to his knees.

A post morterm conducted at the City Mortuary was unable to reveal if the victim had been sexually assaulted before he met his untimely death.

The two men together with the DJ told police that the deceased took away his life.

The duo claimed that they only knew of his death when the DJ returned to the apartment.

His family on the other hand brushed off the claims. His mother who works in Qatar noted that her son had asked for money to attend a meeting in Ruiru. She noted that her son has never been suicidal.

She revealed a Whatsapp audio corroborating her statement.

"Mum aki si unitumie 200 sahii DJ Fatxo amenichatisha ameniambia tumeet na sina doh, nangoja doh jioni," Mwathi said.

"Sawa mum, acha niende, nakaa smart nitaenda kupiga picha na yeye tukipatana nitakupigia picha uone," he added.

The family has called on the police to speed up investigations and bring justice to their son.
