Investigations by the DCI (The Kenyan Directorate of Criminal Investigations) are underway following the death of a preacher, Elizabeth Githingi. She was found dead at the residence of Kikuyu gospel musician, Mirugi Dishon.
According to a police statement, Elizabeth had visited Mirugi at his Kahawa West home on Saturday to deliver his suit from Nakuru.
Upon arriving, she decided to clean both his house and clothes, which she found to be dirty.
Mirugi reportedly left the house to run errands on Thika Road, and when he returned, he found Elizabeth hanging from a bedsheet in his wardrobe.
He claims to have untied the body and transferred it to his car, before driving to the Jacaranda Maternity Home. However, the medics there refused to pick up the body, as Elizabeth was already dead.
Mirugi then drove to various police stations with the body still in his car, but was advised to report the incident to Kahawa West and Kasarani police stations instead.
He was eventually allowed to take the body to the Kenyatta University Mortuary on Saturday evening. The musician returned to Kasarani police station on Sunday to provide a statement about Elizabeth’s death, accompanied by DCI homicide detectives who have taken over the investigation.
