Police are investigating an incident in which a man was killed by a mob after he grabbed money that had been given out by musician Charles Kanyi aka Jaguar, who has declared that he will vie for Starehe MP in the August 8 General Election.
According to a Star reporter, Jaguar was campaigning in Ziwani area on Saturday and gave out an unknown amount of money to a group of youths.
Police say one of the group members grabbed the money and ran away with others pursuing him. He was later found dead in the area after suspected beating. It is believed that Police intend to grill Jaguar as part of the probe.
However, speaking exclusively to Radiojambo.co.ke, the Popular musician turned politician, refuted the claims citing that he neither toured the Ziwani area nor did he offer money to any particular group of people.
He claims that he was on a goodwill mission in Ziwani area in Nairobi through his Jaguar foundation where he donated a number of car washing machines, adding that he never at any time gave out cash to anyone.
“I was told that the man died at 7:30pm in an area where I never even set my foot in so there’s no way that story is related with me. What we did we went to give out car wash machines not money and I was out of the place by 5:30pm so you see these are mere propaganda because how can you grab the said money at 5:30PM then get killed two hours later?. ”
Said Jaguar, adding that if the alleged group would have been fighting over car wash ownership, then he would have been involved.
