A month before her murder, Makokha took to his Facebook and wrote, "People really have good things to talk about you, but you have to die first!"

Four days after her murder, he took to his socials to pay tribute to Christine, "This is more than worse to me. REST EASY MY CLOSE PERSON. They'll never have peace."

Then two days before his arrest, he wrote, "Never be a prisoner of your past. It was just a lesson, not a life sentence."Detectives have profiled Makoho and found that he has a criminal past.

He was discovered to have been a dangerous criminal, previously arrested by detectives and set free under unclear circumstances.

On February 2, 2021, Makokha currently pursuing a Bachelor of Science degree in Specialist Needs Education was identified as the culprit behind the murder of his brother, his brother’s wife, and their one-year-old baby.

Makokha in unclear circumstances killed the three by setting their house ablaze while they were inside.

The matter was investigated by Mumias based detectives under reference number DCI/CR/NO925/36/2021 and the case file was forwarded to the DPP for further action.

The DPP advised that a public inquest into the matter be conducted.

Even before the inquest was conducted and his kin buried, Makokha attacked the grieving family by disrupting the burial planning meetings that were ongoing and destroyed the family’s property.

He was arrested, charged and remanded at Kakamega G.K Prison. However, the case was withdrawn under unclear circumstances and the suspect was set free.

Today morning at 2 am, Special Service detectives stormed a room that he had rented in Chokaa area within Kayole and arrested him once again!

He has been on the run since committing the heinous crime and has been engaging detectives in a cat and mouse game in the populated Eastlands area of Kayole.

Makokha will be arraigned in court to answer murder charges.
