Safaricom threatens to withdraw Adverts should Ivy’s killer be linked to SportPesa
Ivy Wangeci, the Moi University sixth year Medicine student who was killed by her lover, is not resting any easy.
Initially, reports had circulated that her killer boyfriend was an M-Pesa agent, something Safaricom has resoundedly denied.
Naftali Njahi Kinuthia used an axe to cold bloodedly hack Ivy Wangeci,28, to death outside Moi Teaching and Referral Hospital.
Eye witnesses say that Naftali arrived at about 10:00am at the hospital and waited outside the Accident and Emergency wing.
It was until 11:00am that he found the deceased, hit her on the head with the axe then slit her throat with a knife.
Naftali did not even take off immediately but waited to confirm Ivy’s death before attempting to flee. Boda boda riders chased after him, got hold of him and performed a mob justice act on him till the police arrived to rescue him.
According to Kahawa Tungu, Njahi works in the IT Department of SportPesa company that trades under the name Pevans EA Limited.
They further allege that MPesa has warned media houses from linking Njahi to SportPesa.
The warning is because, when many Kenyans bet, they make their payments using MPesa.
Kahawa Tungu further states that Safaricom has threatened to withdraw its advertisements to any media house that will continue to link Njahi to the betting firm.
