Joseph Irungu admitted at KNH
By Kelley Boss | November 13th 2018
Monica Kimani murder suspect Joseph Irungu has been admitted in hospital for his self-inflicted gunshot wound.
Mr. Irungu who was denied bail by Justice James Wakiaga was admitted at Kenyatta National Referral Hospital (KNH) on Monday 12th November.
Jowie is allowed to walk around the hospital garden but has to be in his grey prison uniform.
A photo shows Mr. Irungu freely strolling across the garden but with police keeping an eye at a distance.
The High Court denied Mr. Irungu's request for bail in the murder of businesswoman Monica Kimani.
In his ruling, Justice James Wakiaga, citing Jowie's history with guns, said the first accused would pose a risk by creating fear and intimidating witnesses.
The judge cited grounds that the "prosecution had positively placed Jowie at the murder scene in an attempt to tamper with evidence."
Jowie had argued that his life is in danger and needed protective custody under proper police supervision.
However, Justice Wakiaga released Ms. Maribe on Sh1 million cash bail or a Sh2 million bond with a surety of the same amount.
The judge said the prosecution failed to table before him compelling reasons to deny Ms. Maribe her freedom.
