VDJ Jones has not communicated his next step even after Citizen TV was forced to apologize for using his photo wrongly which depicted he’s dead.
The apology was delivered during 9 pm prime time news by Trevor Ombija on Monday, May,3.
“This is why we’re starting this story with an apology because during our earlier broadcast at 7 pm we inadvertently used the wrong pictures of VDJ Jones while making reference to DJ Mike Kay,” Trevor Ombija stated.
VDJ Jones had threatened to press charges against Citizen TV and reporter Gatete Njoroge who run with the story and did not find the right photo.
“I wish to disassociate myself from this report by Citizen TV Nipashe News. I am alive and kicking. I will press charges against Citizen TV and the reporter Gatete Njoroge,” Jones stated.
Till now, VDJ Jones has not revealed if he will still go ahead and sue Citizen TV or the apology was enough to settle the misunderstanding.
DJ Mike Kay’s body was found in River Mathioya in Murang’a County over the weekend. The two were very close friends, with Jones recalling through Facebook post how he trained Mike Kay.
So far, 10 bodies have been retrieved from River Mathioya in a span of six months. It has become a popular dumping site for dead bodies.
The trend has caused fear and panic among the residents of Mathioya. The residents are not even sure if their security is guaranteed.
“This place is not safe to pass past 11 pm. Even if your car broke down you’re better off leaving it here,” the resident told Citizen TV.
One of the bodies of the missing Kitengela men was also retrieved from one of the Rivers in Murang’a county which has raised a lot of eyebrows about the security of the region.
