Embakasi East Member of Parliament Paul Ongili famously known as Babu Owino now wants Jowie Irungu, Ex-fiancee to tv girl Jackie Maribe released on bail.
Irungu was arrested last year and detained in connection to the murder of Monica Kimani.
According to the legislator, the judiciary has been unfair and is being used by ‘powerful and monied’ individuals to defeat justice, who are released on bail and the ‘poor’ detained.
Through an Instagram post, Owino cited a list of murder suspects who have been released on bail, linking their cases to Jowie’s who has since been in detention.
“The Judiciary is being used. When Obado was a accused of murdering Sharon he was given cash/bond term. Sarah Wairimu prime suspect in Cohen murder was released on bond/bail. Jowie should be given bond/bail until found guilty to be able to be jailed,” read part of the post.

Monica Kimani, a business woman aged 28 was found murdered in a bathtub at her Kilimani Apartment Lamuria Gardens.
It was a case of murder termed most foul that detailed suspects TV girl Jackie Maribe and her fiancee Jowie Irungu among other suspects.
Jowie was identified positively as the last person to have met the lady in her apartment, with raveling details of a pistol and the incident of shooting himself putting him at the center of the murder as the main suspect.
