The mysterious death of Interior Designer Jeff Mwathi continues to send shockwaves across the country as Kenyans from all walks of life pile pressure on the authorities to get to the bottom of the matter.
Mwathi died after allegedly falling off from renowned DJ Fatxo's Redwood apartment along Thika road on February 22, 2023, after a night of partying.
As the probe into Mwathi's death gathers pace, it has now emerged that the young man may have been romantically involved with two women.
Mwathi's girlfriend Faith Wairimu has been at the forefront, demanding justice for the man she loved dearly even as she continues to allege that DJ Fatxo was involved in the designer's death.
Wairimu's TikTok account features some videos where she is seen having some quality time with Mwathi.
“Always in my mind forever in my heart,” Wairimu captioned a video shared on TikTok on March 13, capturing the duo chilling out in bed and taking video selfies together.

On the day he died, Mwathi, who is alleged to have taken his life by jumping from the 10th floor of Fatxo's apartment, 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, DJ Fatxo 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 DJ Fatxo 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 had never been suicidal.
