DJ Fatxo he is a suspect in the death of Jeff Mwathi.

The Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions is set to recommend an inquest into Jeff Mwathi's death.

Mwathi was found dead at DJ Fatxo's apartment in Kasarani.

A source at the DPP's office said they have the letter ready but will register it in court soon.

In a press release on Wednesday, Fatxo's lawyer Dancun Okach said the DPP wanted the matter to pursue the route of an inquest.

"We act for Lawrence Njuguna popularly known as DJ Fatxo. Our client has been at the centre of extensive investigations by the Directorate of Criminal Investigations, ever since the unfortunate death of his friend  Jeff Mwathi," Okach said.

He said he is happy that the truthful position has always been espoused and that his client's innocence has come out at last. 

He said the DJ is very thankful to the DCI and the DPP for exhibiting great standards of professionalism, independence and focus.

"This is despite the orchestrated public and social media machinations to obfuscate the truth and propagate extremely damaging outright defamatory lies and versions with the sole aim of besmirching and injuring our client and his reputation with a consequential heavy detrimental effect," he said.

"We are happy to state that we now know that the Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions has indeed applied itself to the matter and has agreed with the findings and recommendations of the Directorate of criminal investigations to wit. it is clear that there is no single shred or iota of evidence to suggest any remote criminal culpability by our client or suspicion thereof." 

He said it is very clear that their client was not even at his house at the material time that his friend, Jeff Mwathi met his death.

"Nonetheless, our client being a practicing Christian has consciously decided to forgive all those who propagated such narratives and he only hopes that through his tribulations, those who had been led into believing such or in one way or another became part of the social mob justice, cyberbullying and Kenyans, have learnt a thing or two," the lawyer said.

"The fact is that it has not been easy for our client and if it were not for his special relationship with God, support from his parents, friends and many fans who still called, messaged or in one way or another showed solidarity with him, he might not even have been in a state to even witness and comprehend this moment of vindication."

The lawyer said Fatxo will now resume his normal life and do what he does best which is ensuring people shake their legs.

He said he hopes that this challenge that has been surmounted will impact positively on any person who may find himself already judged even before his side of the story is heard.
