Starlet Wahu Mwangi, 24, the sister of Prophet Kanyari, tragically met her end in a South B, Nairobi Airbnb. John Matara, a middle-aged man, was arrested on suspicion of her murder.
In an online CCTV video, Wahu, in a red dress, entered the apartment building with a man. The next day, a distress call reported a murder. Police, finding the residence secured, forcibly entered, discovering Wahu’s lifeless body in a pool of blood.
Judith Nyongesa, Makadara’s police commander, revealed the victim bled to death, with bruises and stab wounds on her thighs, suggesting an attempt to escape before succumbing.
Authorities secured the area, initiating an inquiry. Preliminary findings indicated a rented night out for the duo. Recovered items included an HIV testing kit (negative result), used condoms, victim’s clothing, a mobile phone, alcohol, and a knife as the murder weapon.
“The case is under investigation to uncover the motive,” said Commander Nyongesa.
Detectives traced the suspect’s phone to a local hospital, where he received treatment for a stab wound. The ongoing investigation aims to determine the motive behind this horrific crime.
