Jowie Irungu made headlines in 2018 alongside his then girlfriend Jackie Maribe for the murder of business woman, Monica Kimani. She was found dead in her apartment by her brother. He had to get help from the neighbors to break the door to her apartment.
The DPP has made an application in Court to have Jowie Irungu's bail revoked citing violation of bond terms. He is said to have gotten into a fight in a popular club along Lang'ata road. Although no charges were formally brought against him, this is a violation of his bond terms. In his bond terms, he was to live with his parents in Nakuru but has been living in Nairobi according to reports. He is also said to have discussed his case in various channels on YouTube.
Bond is a Constitutional Right as per Article 49 (1)(h) of the Constitution of Kenya. Once one has been granted bond, the Court sets conditions, and if any of the terms as violated, the bond terms are revoked and the person goes back to prison.
The Court may set conditions that the accused does not interfere with witnesses in his case, that the accused does not discuss the case while it’s ongoing,that the accused does not leave the jurisdiction of the Court and that they maintain good conduct while back in the society. This however varies from case to case.
