Mystery Lady in Death of Frank Obegi & Friends say she was the victim of their fraud


The mystery lady involved in the murder of popular social media influencer Frank Obegi and three of his confidants has revealed that she was defrauded of Ksh100,000 by one of the deceased.

Doreen Makena, Elijah Omeka’s lover, now claims she was defrauded of Ksh100,000 by Fred Obare in a college writing scam.

Media reported that Makena had a phone conversation with Fred on Thursday afternoon, June 16, asking him to return the funds.

After a verbal agreement between the two, Fred disappeared later that day, with the family revealing that Makena was the last person to speak to his loved ones.

Initial reports indicated that Makena had requested Fred’s assistance in the search for her missing boyfriend – Elijah.

“Makena called Stephanie Mburu (Fred’s wife) to ask if her husband had arrived home, but that was not the case. His phone was switched off at 2:30 p.m. the same day, moments after speaking to Makena. That’s the last we heard from him,” Fred’s brother Finley Mokaya said.

Makena has since expressed her fear after the mutilated bodies of her boyfriend and alleged scammer were found in Kijabe Forest.

“I’m worried about the incident and I’m not ready to talk about it now,” she told the media.

Reports said she has since moved from Nairobi to an unknown location after the incident, with Fred’s family alleging she was not cooperating with them over the matter.

Talk to, Kasarani OCPD Peter Mwanzo confirmed that the two women have not yet recorded their statements to the police in order to report on the course of events.

“The DCI had to register the statements of Mburu and Makena, so the Directorate should have the status of the situation,” he said.

Police say Fred, who had several business dealings with Elijah, was heading for another deal over college accounts on the Thursday night before he disappeared.
