“Detectives 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.” Read the statement posted by the DCI on Twitter.

DCI noted that DJ Brownskin defied summons and was on the run before his arrest on June1, bringing the cat and mouse game to an end.

“Detectives have finally arrested a local DJ who has been on the run after he defied summons by police to record a statement in relation to his wife’s death. Michael Macharia Njiiri aka DJ Brown Skin, was arrested on Thursday night by sleuths based at Kasarani police station, after engaging them in cat and mouse games for the past few weeks.

“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.”

The statement added that the DJ documented what would be his wife’s final moments in a heart-wrenching video without intervening.

“The DJ had been summoned by detectives to shed more light into the death of his wife Sharon Njeri, 33, who ingested poison as he recorded on a device on the night of July 29 and 30, last year. In a heart-wrenching video tape released by a popular blogger on April 1, 9 months after Njeri’s remains had been buried, her last moments were filmed by the DJ as she emptied a poisonous substance into a cup and ingested without hesitation.

“She then slumped on a couch and called her two children to inform them of her impending death. The mother of two collapsed and died shortly thereafter. She was buried at her parents home in Koimbe Weithaga village, Murang’a County, on August 6 last year.” Read the statement.
