I was indeed with Jackie Maribe at Citizen TV when I was being interviewed on the JKL show on the 19th of September, 2018, from about 9:45 pm.

I was accompanied by Chela Ruto, Hon. Juju, Hon. Nancy, Hon. Anita (huyu ni yule nilipea the late Hon. Ken Okoth akaweka ball.

May his soul continue resting in peace) and other male friends by then Odhis, Show, Swaleh, Pinye, among others." Shared Sonko

"After the show, I volunteered to take all those who were with me for kamvinyo and nyama choma kule Club forty forty which belonged to my friend Allan Igambi formerly GM Serena, and Lilian Towers who was also present.

Tulipiga sherehe kwanza mimi nilikuwa na piga Hennesiree Vsop na majiree na around 4am I left for home.

Since hii Mushene was there from the day Jackie was arrested, I managed to download the CCTV ya the club. Iko."

"However, I do not know Jowie Irungu, and I don't support his actions at all on that material day, and if it's true he murdered Monica Kimani, let the law take its course.

That's is all I wish to state. Upande wa mashtaka muko na swali kwa huyu shahidi. Ohhh ilikuwa ikakuwa, sijui mbirimbi, ukwaju, achari, kitumbua."
