Renowned comedian Henry DeSagu has broken his silence a few days after many Kenyans linked him to having familial ties with the murder suspect of Pastor Kanyari’s sister, socialite Starlet Wahu. Taking to his Facebook page, DeSagu humorously dismissed any association with John Matara, whose images have been circulating on social media since the weekend when the suspected murder of Starlet Wahu grabbed headlines.
DeSagu asserted that he has no connection whatsoever with Matara, despite jokes circulating that the two are like “real brothers.”
“I have no relationship with John Matara. Any such hullabaloo associating me with him should be disregarded, discombobulated, and disconfigured with utmost hubwatete,” DeSagu stated.
However, his fans remained adamant, claiming that DeSagu and Matara, who is currently under police custody, bear a striking resemblance, especially in facial features.
“The truth be told. The resemblance is uncanny, from the pose, eye sockets, lips, and the face is 100% Wang’ombe! But what are we saying?” remarked Stacey Waweru.
“This is your brother, sir,” Dennis Mutembei commented.
“Maybe nurses who were in the ward should bring the truth. This is not just a brother, he’s a twin,” added Joy Joy the Girl.
Matara was arrested shortly after Wahu’s body was found bleeding inside an AirBnB house in South B. He is currently in police custody, and numerous other women have come forward, alleging that they have experienced violence at his hands and narrowly escaped death.
Starlet Wahu was laid to rest on Saturday afternoon in Kamulu, on the outskirts of Nairobi, in a ceremony attended by close family members. The funeral was expedited and attended only by immediate family due to the circumstances surrounding her tragic death.
