Justice Grace Nzioka is convinced that Joseph Irungu alias Jowie was at Monica Kimani’s house in Lamuria gardens on the night she was murdered.

According to the judge, evidence provided in court has proved that Jowie was the last person to see Monica at her house and he had accessed the premises using another person’s ID..

“It is the finding of this court that the first accused person was in the deceased house on the material date and he was the last person to be seen with the deceased. The evidence of the protected witness is that Harun whom he identified on the parade as the first accused person left that house at 23.00 and no one else went to that house,” she said.

“It is the evidence of this witness that the deceased’s Sudanese boyfriend was not in Kenya. And there is evidence that the deceased was supposed to travel the following day to go to Dubai to meet the Sudanese boyfriend and business and holiday,” Justice Nzioka further stated.

The court also found that Jowie lied about knowing Monica Kimani. After an analysis on the evidence it was found that Jowie and Monica were schoolmates.

“It is the finding of this court that the evidence by the first accused person that he did not know the deceased prior top her death is untenable and it is an afterthought and it is false. The court finds that the first accused person was known to the deceased because they were together at Kenya Polytechnic. They were in the same class taking the same course,” Justice Nzioka said.

Jowie is accused alongside Jacque Maribe. The ruling is still ongoing at the Milimani Law Courts.
