Court grants Monica Kimani’s family its wish as Jowie is sentenced to death

Joseph Irungu aka Jowie has been sentenced to death just as the family of the late Monica Kimani had begged the court.

Delivering the verdict on Wednesday, High Court judge Grace Nzioka ruled that the horrific murder of Monica Kimani was intentional.

“It was not a defensive act. It was not out of provocation. It was planned, intended and executed,” ruled Justice Nzioka.

The decision was made at the Milimani Law Courts after a lengthy legal process.

Monica Kimani’s mother had urged the court to deliver the ultimate justice by sentencing her daughter’s murderer Jowie to death.

In a pre-sentencing statement, Monica’s mother earnestly implored the court to impose the death penalty, emphasizing that it is only fitting for one who snuffs out a life in such a cruel manner to face a similar fate.

In an interview with probation officer Andrew Kanyutu, Monica’s mother experienced an emotional breakdown, expressing her anguish through inconsolable wails, reflecting the profound impact of Monica’s tragic demise on her.

Monica’s mother stated that she still struggles to comprehend the circumstances surrounding her daughter’s untimely death, questioning why Monica, known for her peaceful nature and hardworking ethic, met such a cruel fate.

Monica’s father, Bishop Paul Ngarama, echoes his wife’s sentiments, citing biblical scripture to underscore the principle that the wicked must face consequences for their actions.
