WATCH: Video of Monica Kimani hanging out with Jowie emerges online

A video has surfaced depicting Joseph ‘Jowie’ Irungu, recently found guilty in the Monica Kimani murder case, enjoying drinks with Monica Kimani and her brother, George Kimani.

The emergence of the video adds a chilling dimension to the high-profile case, shedding light on the interactions between Jowie and Monica prior to her tragic demise.

The footage, shared by Edgar Obare on his BNN Instagram account, captures a seemingly casual gathering where Monica and Jowie, and her brother can be seen socializing.

Jowie’s voice can be heard as he interacts with Monica and her brother.

Jowie’s casual demeanor and familiarity with the deceased raise questions about the events leading up to Monica Kimani’s tragic death.

Jowie faces the consequences of the court’s verdict, which is set to be followed by sentencing on March 8, 2024.

Against the backdrop of the court’s damning verdict, which found Irungu guilty of Kimani’s murder based on circumstantial evidence, the video raises questions about the nature of the relationship between the accused and the deceased.

“It is the finding of this court that even though the case is based on circumstantial evidence, the prosecution has adduced adequate evidence and has met the threshold. To sum up, did the first accused person kill the deceased? It is the finding of this court that he armed himself with a gun and went to Lamuria Gardens and murdered the deceased,” Justice Nzioka remarked during the trial.

Reading from her detailed findings, Justice Nzioka further revealed that Irungu was familiar with Kimani, contrary to his earlier claims of not knowing her.

According to the judge, evidence presented indicated that the accused and the deceased had been classmates at Kenya Polytechnic, adding a new layer of complexity to the case.

“The first accused (Jowie Irungu) claimed he did not know the deceased at all. George Kimani, the deceased’s brother submitted that Jowie and Monica Kimani were in the same class in 2002 taking the same course in hotel and beverage management,” Justice Nzioka disclosed.

Meanwhile, former news anchor Jacque Maribe was acquitted in the same case.
