Following the High Court’s verdict on Friday, which found Joseph Irungu, also known as Jowie, guilty of murder and acquitted former TV personality Jacque Maribe, the family of the late Monica Kimani has broken their silence.
The family expressed relief, acknowledging that justice has been a prolonged wait for the deceased, who was brutally murdered shortly after arriving in the country.
They welcomed the ruling, noting that it has been a long wait for justice for Monica, who was murdered shortly after jetting into the country. “We’re relieved as a family that at least we’re coming to the final part of this long journey because it has been a bit overwhelming. As a family, we have gone through a lot,” Monica’s brother George Kimani said in an interview shortly after the ruling.
“We have waited for this judgment for long because it has been postponed over three times, so I was happy that we had to settle it today,” he added.
