The prime suspect in the murder of business woman Monica Kimani, Jowie Irungu will spend the Christmas in prison.
This is after he was denied bail by Justice James Wakiaga postponing the hearing to February 2020.
It will be the second year in a row that Jowie Irungu will be spending the December holiday in jail following his arrest in September 2018.

Before the Thursday bail hearing, Irungu had been quoted explaining how he had been suffering since he was locked up.
He went further to claim that he has been receiving a few minutes to communicate with his visitors at Kamiti Maximum Prison.
His co-accused and former Citizen TV presenter Jacque Maribe has been used as an example Jowie as to how she was granted bail and she stills attends court hearing.
The news was not well received as others blamed the judiciary for being unfair.
Citing other criminal cases facing prominent people, they asked as to why they were granted bail and why that is not the case for Jowie?
“Justice system is unfair to Jowie, he’ll know whether he’ll have bail or not in February yet co accused and similarly accused like Obado are out on bail. The Boychild’s rights must not be ignored.” Said Bel Akinyi.
