A whats app screen shot has been making rounds on the internet indicating that Deputy President William Ruto has a hand in the case and that the government has a hand in the issue as the murder of Monica was a diplomatic issue.

Here are some of the tweets:

Justice Wakiaga stated that his attitude toward the media was negative and warned them to stop publishing unauthenticated reports.

“My attitude towards these people (media) is negative!…Those statements that you keep on telling us about this case, stop writing them from now,” he said.

“I am an old-school judge… if I am influenced before a case, I get upset,” he continued

He said that although Kenyans had a right to information on the proceedings the media reports were contravening the principle of sub judice which states that a matter before the court is not subject to public discussion elsewhere.
