The MP dismissed the allegations through a post on his social media and urged Kenyans to respect the memory of Ms Wangeci.

Mr Sudi wrote: "I personally never knew Ivy but I wish to express my heartfelt condolences to the family and friends of Ivy."

Speculation had begun after an unidentified person circulated a screenshot of a WhatsApp conversation alleging that Ivy Wangechi was romantically linked with the Kapseret MP.

Forgiving rumor mongers

"Given that today is a Palm Sunday, I choose to forgive whoever did this. It's immoral, immature and inhuman to share such malicious crap on social media even as the family is grieved by the gruesome murder of Ivy," Sudi stated.

"Furthermore, it's cruel, callous and barbaric to wish someone some sickness because no sane human can do so to his/her fellow being," he added.

Quoting Bible verses, the legislator called on Kenyans to bear with each other as it is taught in the Christian faith.

"As a politician, I am used to such cyber-bullying but it's more sad and painful to the family when such fabrications are spread against their bright daughter," The Kapseret legislator stated.

Ivy's family

Meanwhile, Ivy's family spoke on the bitterness caused by negative comments about her, with her mother, Winfred Waithera saying they are in shock following her daughter’s murder.

She appealed to the bloggers to be mindful of the family’s plight, as they mourn their daughter.

I want to make it clear that the Ivy the bloggers are talking about and trying to portray in a bad light in social media is not the same one we knew. The Ivy we knew was God-fearing, disciplined and one who did not depend on or have sponsors,” said Waithera.
