NAIROBI, Kenya, January 11-  On Wednesday 26, the police conducted a raid at John Matara’s residence in Kahawa West, the primary suspect in the murder of Starlet Wahu.

During the operation, the authorities seized various items that will serve as evidence in Matara’s case, including HIV testing kits, packs of condoms, empty alcohol bottles, rolls of cannabis, and notes containing personal information about different victims displayed on the wall.

Detectives uncovered that Matara led a seemingly quiet life but utilized his residence for hosting women. The caretaker of the apartment expressed disbelief upon learning about Matara’s alleged activities, mentioning that he appeared to be a quiet and seemingly good person. Despite his reserved lifestyle, Matara was known for his affinity for alcohol and often had women visiting his house.

The caretaker further disclosed that Matara tended to stay indoors during the day, leaving at night and returning in the early morning hours in the company of different women. Additionally, Matara encountered difficulties in paying rent and frequently requested extensions to gather the necessary funds.

Childhood friends of Matara, residing in Daraja Mbili in Kisii County, expressed astonishment at the accusations against him. They portrayed him as a devout Christian, attending church early, excelling in singing, and offering valuable advice.

Following the January 3, 2024 incident, where Starlet Wahu lost her life, several women have come forward alleging that they were previously sexually assaulted and extorted by Matara.
