Kapseret Member of Parliament Oscar Sudi has rubbished claims that he was in a romantic relationship with slain Moi University medical student Ivy Wangechi.
Ms Wangechi, was killed 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, screenshots were shared online claiming Oscar Sudi was one of her lovers.
In a long Facebook 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 said the comments amount to cyber bulling, which he is used to, adding that he never knew Ivy.
“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, ” he added.
“I personally never knew Ivy but I wish to express my heartfelt condolences to the family and friends of Ivy.”
Ms Wangechi’s killer on Wednesday confirmed to authorities of killing the deceased using an axe.
Kinuthia, an employee of betting firm Sport Pesa, told authorities that he committed the crime after continuous frustrations from the woman he loved.
The 28-year-old, has however, been described as a calm person by his family and work mates.
Both Wangechi and Kinuthia’s families have acknowledged that the two were childhood friends, however, what pushed Kinuthia to commit the heinous act remains a mystery to them.
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 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.
