The father to the late Wanjaro Junior has dismissed reports that his son committed suicide after his lifeless body was found in Masinga dam.
According to Njaro Wairatu, Wanjaro Junior was killed by Nairobi based businessmen after they stage-managed the entire script to make it appear like he committed suicide.
While speaking to Nation on Wednesday, the father confessed that a strange number called and promised him huge sums of money if he did not discuss the death of Wanjaro Junior with the media.
As a result, the father felt suspicious why a stranger would bar him from talking about the death of his son with the media. Besides, Wanjaro Junior’s father admitted that the son confessed to him that he feared for his life after a deal he signed with people in Nairobi went sour.
In another incident, the father said that the son called him on July 14th and told him that the businessmen had taken him before his phone went off.
Shockingly, the old mzee further revealed that the assassins used Wanjaro Junior’s phone to send him a message that he would throw himself in River Sagana. The mother to the late also claimed that everything looked stage-managed, urging those he owed the alleged money to present evidence for the same.
