Jowie Released on 2 Million Cash Bail

Joseph Irungu alias Jowie has been released on KSh 2 million cash bail. The court ordered him not to comment about the case on social media. He was arrested in September 2018 following the murder of businesswoman Monica Kimani

While granting him bail, Justice James Wakiaga noted that key witnesses who were under witness protection had already testified and would not be affected by his release.
Jowie, who has been in remand since September 2018, had filed a bail application on November 21, 2019 claiming he was suffering at the Kamiti Maximum Prison.

The suspect, whose previous bail applications have been denied, further sought to assure the court that if released “I have no intent to go anywhere.” “My second accused (Jacque Maribe) was granted bail and she never absconded court. I deserve the same,” he said.

Maribe was freed on bail in October 2018, with the court denying Jowie bail on grounds that he was a flight risk and was likely to intimidate the witnesses in the high profile case.
