The key suspect in businesswoman Monica Kimani murder case Joseph Irungu aka Jowie to spend festive season behind bars following the recent court ruling.
Jowie’s fresh bail application on Thursday 28 November was directed to be heard on February 13, 2020, by Justice James Wakiaga presiding Monica’s murder case.
Jowie has been behind bars since 2018 September which clearly shows he will spend Christmas for the second time locked up at Kamiti Maximum Prison.
In Jowie’s fresh bail application, he claimed that he was suffering a lot in custody as he disclosed earlier that he had been isolated which means he is denied contact with anyone even the prison wardens.
Jowie further pointed out that the people he thought were close to him deserted him except his family and some few friends.
Narrating how things are hard behind bars even the time to talk to his family is very limited to 10 minutes, Jowie said, “Since this is a maximum-security prison, you can imagine someone who left Nakuru at 6 AM to come and see you early is given only ten minutes to talk to you. And it’s strictly 10 minutes.”
Jowie’s first bail application in December 30 2018 was denied by Justice James Wakiaga on on grounds that he might interfere with witnesses but his co-accused fiancé then Jacque Maribe was granted Ksh2 million bond or Ksh1 million cash bail, with three sureties.
