Jowie writes to JSC over ‘woman eater’ tag, wants judge sacked

Murder suspect Joseph Irungu alias Jowie has formally lodged a complaint at the Judicial Service Commission (JSC) seeking to have Justice James Wakiaga removed from the case.

Jowie also wants the judge to be sacked altogether for displaying open bias against him after he referred to him as a ‘woman eater’.

Jowie and his fiancee, Citizen TV anchor Jacque Maribe, are accused of murdering businesswoman Monica Kimani at her Kilimani apartment.

Monica was found in a bathtub with her hands and legs tied and her throat slit.

Justice Wakiaga released Jacque Maribe on bail, but denied Jowie the same in a ruling that has gained reputation for the descriptions a ‘woman eater’ and ‘male version of a slay queen’.

“By describing me as a woman-eater, the judge abused his position and compounded the female gender to be nothing less than items to be eaten, which is quite foul and degrading coming from a sitting judge,” Jowie stated in his complaint to the JSC.

“Indeed the judge used the most uncouth, derogatory and injudicious language against me as being a male version of a slay queen.”

Jowie ALSO questioned the judge’s integrity and demanded disciplinary action to be taken against him.
