MP Oscar Sudi, Ivy’s Mother Break Silence on Allegations Over Romantic Links

Kapseret Member of Parliament Oscar Sudi might be belligerent and unbridled, but there’s a limit to the things he can do- or so he claims.

Sudi has rubbished claims that he shared a romantic relationship with slain Moi University medical student Ivy Wangechi. Ms Wangechi, was killed in cold blood last week by a man identified as Naftali Njami Kinuthia outside Moi teaching and Referral Hospital MTRH, where she was taking her final year practicals.

Following her death which has overly been linked to love gone sour, screen-shots were shared on-line claiming Oscar Sudi was one of her lovers.

In a long Face book post, the legislator termed the claims barbaric, immoral and immature.

“Given that today is a Palm Sunday, i choose to forgive whoever did this. It’s immoral, immature and inhuman to share such malicious crap on social media even as the family is grieved by the gruesome murder of Ivy. Furthermore, it’s cruel, callous and barbaric to wish someone some sickness because no sane human can do so to his/her fellow being, ” Sudi said

He added:

“As a politician, I am used to such cyber bullying but it’s more sad and painful to the family when such fabrications are spread against their bright daughter. I personally never knew Ivy but I wish to express my heartfelt condolences to the family and friends of Ivy.”

Kinuthia has since been discharged from MTRH, where he was receiving treatment after angry boda boda riders attempted to lynch him after the murder. He is set to be arraigned on today- Monday.

The body of Ms Wangechi was on Thursday moved to Kenyatta University Hospital mortuary as funeral arrangements continue.

She will be raid to rest on Thursday, April 18, at her parents’ rural home in Othaya, Nyeri county.

Her mother has spoken of the pain of losing a daughter and the bitterness caused by negative comments about her adding that the family is still in shock following her daughter’s murder.

Addressing the media yesterday at their Thika Makongeni Phase 10 home, Waithera said Wangechi’s death hit them hard and reports portraying her in bad light only added insult to injury.

The mother of three said the family had been in agony since they received the “unforgettable” call from a chaplain in Moi University informing them of their daughter’s murder.

“We are still in shock and cannot believe that Ivy is gone forever. It is so hard to imagine that we will never see her again. It is so painful for us as parents and family,” she said.

She said they had high hopes in Wangechi, who was scheduled to graduate this December.The mother lashed out at bloggers for “peddling lies and propaganda” on social media about her daughter.

“I want to make it clear that the Ivy the bloggers are talking about and trying to portray in bad light in social media is not the same one we knew. The Ivy we knew was God fearing, disciplined and one who did not depend on or have sponsors,” said Waithera.

Her mother teaches at Chomo Secondary School in Gatanga, Murang’a County, while father Paul Wainaina is the principal of Kanjuiri Secondary School in Nyandarua County.
