‘Starlet Wahu called me before her death,’ Prophet Kanyari on baby sister’s murder

Prophet Victor Kanyari, the founder of Salvation Healing Ministry, has opened up about the harrowing events leading to the tragic demise of his socialite sister, Starlet Wahu, who was brutally murdered on Thursday, January 3.

During a somber church service on Sunday, January 7, Pastor Kanyari disclosed that his sister attempted to reach out to him around 2 am on that fateful morning, desperately seeking help.

Unfortunately, he did not answer the call, unaware of the impending danger she was facing.

Kanyari shared the heart-wrenching details, explaining that Starlet had sent a significant amount of money, approximately Sh500,000, to her alleged killer, identified as John Matara.

The two had initially connected on social media, eventually progressing to dating before deciding to meet in person for lunch.

“I know you have seen on social media and TV and we are trending with people involving our church and saying my sister was killed. My sister was stabbed. My only sister who has lived in America for all her life.

 She has been at the University here and she was killed on Thursday morning. She was a very pretty girl and blessed. I do not want to speak about it but I know some of you are disturbed by the sad news,” Kanyari said.

Addressing the congregation, Pastor Kanyari defended his late sister, emphasizing that her only mistake was trusting a stranger who turned out to be a killer.

“My sister got involved with a man she met on social media, thinking he loved her. The man invited her for dinner, claiming to be wealthy.

She fell into the trap of being a socialite with a large following on Instagram. They went to a club, had drinks, and then the man suggested they get a room for the night. Unbeknownst to her, the man was a serial killer,” Kanyari expressed.

“They booked a house together. They bought HIV tests and went to their room. Unfortunately, the man was a serial killer. My sister did not see him as a killer but as someone who loved her. I do not see any problem with my sister. She was a young girl, single and looking for love. It is normal for her age. She is not the first girl to fall under his trap.”


Kanyari further said the tragic turn of events unfolded when the killer started demanding money from his sister, Starlet, inside the room.

Kanyari revealed that she tried to contact him at 2 am, and by 3 am, the assailant began threatening her, demanding Sh500,000.

“In the middle of the night, she tried to call me at around 2 am, but I did not pick up my call. At 3 am, he started threatening her and asked her for money, he asked her for Sh500,000,” Pastor Kanyari narrated.

The situation escalated, leading to a confrontation where Starlet was fatally stabbed in the neck by her assailant.

“My sister started withdrawing money from her bank but it seems she started being resistant and they fought inside there.”

The killer locked Starlet inside the room, making it difficult for her to seek help or medical attention.

She succumbed to her injuries, attempting to save herself at the door.

“He asked her to call her family to ask for money. The man later disappeared with the key and locked her inside there. She died at the door trying to save herself…” he said.

Kanyari said his family opted for a hasty burial on Saturday, January 6, with only 20 close family and friends in attendance.

Pastor Kanyari explained that they declined outside help and refused any assistance offered, wanting to keep the matter private and avoid media attention.

“We did not want any help and even those who sent money, I reversed. I did not want people to support me in burying my sister. I have seen on the news that my sister’s killer has done that to other girls. It is a sad story and it is even very sad to see people bullying my family on social media. She died and we had nothing else to do so I requested my family that we hurriedly bury her since I did not also want media people to be all over me,” he explained.

Kanyari expressed his concern for his sister’s well-being, emphasizing that people should stop crucifying him.

“My sister was not born again so I do not see any problem with her using alcohol or even going for a date. I am the one who is saved and not her.”

Starlet was brutally murdered inside an Airbnb apartment in South B, Nairobi County, on the night of Wednesday, January 3, 2023.

On Friday, January 5, a postmortem was conducted, revealing that she died of excessive bleeding.

Already, detectives investigating the case have received another complainant who said that Matara had locked her up inside an Airbnb and demanded money as he tortured her.
