The flopped Naifest Concert was held a few weeks ago and the event’s organizers continue to delve into more trouble after the video of security personnel roughing up the teenage reveler surfaced a few days ago.
The 17-year- old who is identified as Shanty alias, Stephen Munga, was reportedly beaten up by angry bouncers shortly before he was claimed by death.
His lifeless body would later be found at the city mortuary two weeks after he went missing and it is still unclear who ferried him to the mortuary.
According to socialite Bridget Achieng, who was the primary organizer of the marred concert, her team is completely innocent and the teenager was alive before dying at the hospital.
However, new witnesses from the crime scene have strongly denied Bridget’s allegations and one lady identified as Mariah Njeri who saw Shanty’s lifeless body before exiting the Ngong Race Course says they were offered an amount of Ksh. 70,000 to remain silent on the matter.
The lass also recorded a clip of the teen’s lifeless body and she is currently living in fear as she is deeply concerned about her safety since she is a key witness in the murder case.
“So venye tulikuwa tunatoka nje, is when we saw Shanty’s body. So we went home fearing and used an Uber to go home. We were not at peace because of Bridget and she offered me 70,000 and I refused because I have the video and screenshots which can be used as evidence. All I know is the young man deserves justice and I couldn’t agree on that.” Maria Njeri said.
Although Bridget attempted to bribe her way out of the murder case the witness remained firm in her decision to share the videos despite putting her own life at risk.
According to the father, Shanty’s post-mortem showed that his son died of severe head injuries and his family, which struggling to come to terms with his murder, says nothing was out of the ordinary when Shanty left home earlier that day.
