Murder suspect and Jacque Maribe's ex-lover Jowie Irungu has landed himself a top security job if his latest post is to go by.

Jowie shared a photo of him fully dressed in a crisp suit with his tie on in a car.

He then captioned the photo;

"Top security consultant."

Previously Jowie Irungu is said to have held security jobs in the Middle East.

Jowie is the key suspect in Monica Kimani, who was found dead in a bathtub with her throat slit.

Jowie was also in a relationship with former TV journalist Jacque Maribe.

Jowie has been keeping a low profile since he returned to social media in September this year.

He had taken a one-year break before.

Four months ago, the last moments of businesswoman Monica Kimani have been strung together by detectives working on the case.

Monica's body was found lying lifeless in the bathtub of her posh apartment in Kimani. Her throat had been slit ear to ear and her hands bound.

The court heard in cross-examination the connection between the murder and the shooting in Maribe’s house.

The link is that the same firearm was used.

Chief inspector Maxwell Otieno told the court that the same firearm Jowie used to shoot himself is the same one that he went with to Monica’s house.

“We believe that the gun was an alternative murder weapon. There were no struggling marks on the victim's body which means he used the gun to make her submit,” the chief inspector said.

Nandwa, while cross-examining Otieno, asked him why he took over the case.

“Are you sure you didn’t initiate being the investigating officer? Confirm that you took over this matter to cover up the real culprits.” 

Otieno strongly denied the claims, saying, he was instructed by the Directorate of Criminal Investigations to take over the matter from Kilimani police who were initially investigating it.

Nandwa also asked the chief inspector if he knew that Monica’s cause of death was a deal of a tender she was handling for their company.

Monica ran a company in South Sudan that she co-owned with her father and brother.

Otieno said he is aware she owned a company alongside two others but didn’t know about the alleged tender.

Nandwa also wanted to know why the chief inspector never questioned Monica’s boyfriend by the name of Yassin.

He said when Monica came back that evening, she picked up the keys from the gate which showed that she shared her house with someone.

Otieno confirmed that indeed he was informed that Monica shared the home with the said Yassin but they didn’t question him because he was out of the country at the time.

“You are not aware that he is an intelligence officer?” Nandwa said.

“No my Lady I am not aware. What I know is he worked for a certain company,” the chief inspector said.
