Jowie Irungu was arrested in 2019 following the grisly murder of Monicah Kimani at his Kilimani apartment.
Also arrested was former Citizen TV presenter Jacque Maribe who was mentioned as an accomplice in the murder.
Her car which is claimed to have been used by the prime suspect was seized as an exhibit.
It was during the hearing that it was established that Irungu shot himself in order to cover up the murder.
His arrest sparked divided opinion as Kenyans begged to understand why political leaders are granted bail while he was denied.
Legislator Babu Owino once brought up his name requesting the court to grant him bail.
