Kapseret Member of Parliament Oscar Sudi has dismissed social media claims that he was among the 'many lovers' of the slain Moi University School of Medicine Student Ivy Wangeci.
Sudi was responding to a screenshot of a WhatsApp conversation that has been going around on social media since the gruesome murder of Wangeci, a sixth-year medical student, by his alleged lover Naftali Kinuthia.
In the screenshot, Sudi has been named as one of Ivy's lovers apart from claims that the student had infected many men with HIV.

The vocal MP through a Facebook post, however, said he had forgiven those that have been spreading the rumours which he termed as "cruel, callous and barbaric."
"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," noted Sudi in part of his post.
He also pointed out that as a politician, he was used top cyberbullying.
"As a politician, I am used to such cyberbullying but it's more sad and painful to the family when such fabrications are spread against their bright daughter. I personally never knew Ivy but I wish to express my heartfelt condolences to the family and friends of Ivy," said Sudi in the Facebook post.
