I’ve learnt my lesson! DJ Joe Mfalme says after DPP dropped murder charges against him

Popular disk jockey DJ Joe Mfalme has spoken for the first time after criminal charges against him were dropped.

The deejay has been in police custody for the last 14 days since he was arrested over his alleged involvement in the murder of a top police officer.

But on Monday, the Directorate of Public Prosecutions (DPP) dropped the murder charges, subsequently setting him free.

In a video shared by former Nairobi Governor Mike Mbuvi Sonko, DJ Joe Mfalme was captured saying he had learnt his lesson.

He further noted that everything had gone well.

Asked about where his next party he will be deejaying, the disk jockey said he would first focus on trimming his hair.

“Siongei sana. Wacha hata nikaoge na nikanyolewe,” DJ Joe Mfalme said.

“Kila kitu imeenda poa. Mimi nime-learn lesson,” he added.

It is not clear yet what the DJ meant when he said he had learnt his lesson.

Initially, he had been accused of beating to death a Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) officer. He was arrested alongside his hypeman Allan Ochieng popularly known as Hype Ballo.

Ballo will now be the one facing murder charges with DJ Joe Mfalme now turned into a state witness.

In a statement, the ODPP said there was no evidence linking the disk jockey with the murder of the DCI officer identified as Felix Kitosi.

The officer was attached to DCI Dagoretti. He died while undergoing treatment at Nairobi West Hospital.

“The deceased had been involved in a non-injury traffic accident within Kikuyu police station on Saturday at about 0400hrs. He had earlier complained of abdominal pains and was on treatment,” the ODPP said.

“Preliminary investigations reveal that he was assaulted by known persons after an altercation over the non-injury road traffic accident,” the police report said.

Three police officers have also been identified as persons of interest.
