Detectives from the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) have launched a probe into the death of Pastor Elizabeth Githinji at the home of Kikuyu gospel singer Dishon Mirugi.
The preacher is said to have visited Mirugi, who is alleged to be her lover, at his home in Nairobi’s Kahawa West estate on Saturday, according to a report filed at Kiamumbi police station by the musician.
Mirugi told police that the deceased had brought him a suit from Nakuru where she lives but when she arrived, she decided to clean up his house and clothes because they were dirty.
The singer says he then left the house to run some errands on Thika Road and left Githinji doing laundry.
While away, he tried to reach Pastor Githinji on her phone but she did not answer, prompting him to go back to the house.
Mirugi claims that when he arrived home, he found Githinji in his wardrobe, appearing to have hung herself with a bedsheet.
He untied the body and transferred it to his car before driving to Jacaranda Maternity Home but medics at the facility declined to pick up the body as she was already dead.
Mirugi then drove to Kiamumbi police station with the body, but officers told him to report the incident to Kahawa West police station, where officers also refused to pick up the body and instead advised him to report the incident to Kasarani police station.
Officers at Kasarani police station similarly declined to pick up the body, saying the singer should have reported the discovery immediately.
He was allowed to take the body to the Kenyatta University Mortuary on Saturday evening after visiting several police stations with the body in his car.
Mirugi went to Kasarani police station on Sunday to record a statement about the preacher’s death, which is being probed by homicide detectives.
This fake singer is a liar. He killed the woman and fabricted everything else. He should be in jail now
Elizabeth’s loved ones ought to have REVENGED for her long ago.Don’t wait for FAKE justice of jailing him for ten years then have him released to go and kill witnesses.No.Mirigu should be killed ASAP FULLSTOP
I agree with you Menye. Revenge is the answer. This man has already started bribing Police and probably Judges. Justice can only be found if Elizabeth's family members or friend take justice in their hands and do the needful. That murderer should only be safe in Police custody and justice is served whereby he is senenced to die with Elizabeth's family witnessing the hanging. Anything less than that will be a free toaster to the killer
HOw times have changed! When I was growing up, I was not even allowed to have alover,much less a man of God having one...
My guess is that she may have commited suicide. I think she came all the way from Nakuru,with an expensive suit for her lover,only to find tale tell signs of 'infidelity'.A quarel ensued,and the took off.
That woman was murdered. Why did that man move the body of a dead woman to take it to the hospital? Who does that? The man owed the lady money and he had been sending her death threats and she wanted what was rightful hers.
How come he did not call the police before moving the body?
