Even though the detectives failed to obtain the Kanzu, forensic evidence from materials burnt at the house revealed a white piece of clothing that could be the said Kanzu.
Questions were however raised on the change of attire by the deceased immediately after picking up the gun which was intended for one purpose only and that was to subdue Monica Kimani.
It was revealed before the court that the second accused, Jacque Maribe was not anywhere near the scene even though her phone was switched off. She told the court through her submission that it was true that she gave Jowie her car but she had no control as to where it will be driven to.
