Details have emerged on the fateful night that has landed Joseph Mwenda, popularly known as DJ Joe Mfalme in trouble after being licked to the assault of Kabete Police Station Deputy DCIO Felix Kelian Kitosi who later died in hospital.

It was a normal night for the DJ and his entourage who spent Friday night and crossed over into Saturday plying his trade at Texas Barbeque in Kikuyu until it was time to leave.

As he was leaving the club at around 4:20 am, an altercation is reported to have ensued between his team and the senior officer.

The officer is reported to have scratched the car belonging to the DJ, sparking an altercation.


DJ Joe Mfalme’s team is reported to have pulled the DCI officer from his car, rained kicks and blows on him before leaving.

Kitosi was then taken to Kikuyu Police station where he is said to have been assaulted further with his condition worsening.

He was rushed to Lang’ata hospital before being transferred to Nairobi West Hospital where he died on Thursday.


A hospital reports details that Kitosi was admitted to the facility with severe abdominal pain and was unable to pass urine for four hours.
