DJ Joe in trouble

DJ Joe Mfalme is reported to have been in a heated altercation with the police officer at Texas Barbeque, an entertainment spot in Kikuyu, on Saturday, March 16.

The incident began when Inspector Felix Kelian Kitosi, a DCIO at Kabete Police Station, accidentally scratched the DJ's vehicle in the parking lot.

This led to a physical altercation involving Joe Mfalme, his bouncer, photographer, and driver.

The altercation resulted in Kelian sustaining severe abdominal injuries, for which he was rushed to Nairobi West Hospital.

Tragically, Kelian passed away due to his injuries.

Kelian's body is being held at Umash Funeral Home in Mbagathi, awaiting an autopsy to determine the cause of death.
