- The DJ was arrested on June 1 at a club in Kasarani as officers investigate him for aiding suicide
- Though the video surfaced this year, DJ Brownskin’s wife died in July last year
Police have arrested Michael Macharia Njiri, popularly known as DJ Brownskin over the death of his wife that occurred last year in July.
DJ Brown skin was arrested by officers from Kasarani Police Station for allegedly aiding the murder of his wife Sharon Njeri.
A video that surfaced online shows Brownskin’s wife imbibing poison with the encouragement from Brownskin.
DJ Brownskin is the one who apparently recorded the video. His voice could be heard in the background.
The DJ was arrested on June 1 at a club in Kasarani as officers investigate him for aiding suicide, according to Section 225 (c) of the Penal Code, which states that, “any person who procures another to kill himself, or counsels another to kill himself and thereby induces him to do so; or aids another in killing himself is guilty of a felony and liable to life imprisonment.”
Though the video surfaced this year, DJ Brownskin’s wife died in July last year.
According to the DCI, DJ Brownskin is being held at Kasarani police station after officers obtained an order to detain him pending investigations.
Detectives further say that they have since established that after recording the ordeal, the suspect sent the video to his other girlfriend living abroad, before the girlfriend went public with the information through the blogger.
“Efforts to summon the suspect to shed more light into the incident proved futile, as he remained elusive prompting detectives to launch a manhunt leading to his arrest on Madaraka Day, moments past midnight,” said the DCI.
The suspect is currently being held at Kasarani police as detectives gather more information from witnesses, to build a strong case against the suspect.
