Monicah Kimani's dad to visit Jowie in Prison after his sentencing

• Jacque Maribe was acquitted in Monicah Kimani's murder case.

• Jowie was sentenced to death in connection to the murder.

Bishop Paul Ngarama plans on visiting Jowie Irungu in prison once he returns to Kenya.

Ngarama who is father to the late business woman Monicah Kimani  is currently in the US. He hopes this will be the first step in helping bring peace between the three families.

Speaking during an interview with Jeremy Damaris on his platform on Kenya Diaspora Media, 

"When I go back to Kenya, I will visit Jowie in prison and have a conversation because he is like my son.

I want this to be part of the reconciliation process among the three families — that of Jowie, Jackie Maribe (who was acquitted in the murder), and my family.

I want to spearhead reconciliation and bring the three families together. We most preach forgiveness and let the matter rest," he added.

Bishop Ngarama says forgiveness did not come easy adding he had to seek the face of God.

"After going through the pain of losing a child, I asked God many questions. God told me to forgive the killer(s), and I even wrote a book about forgiveness titled 'Endurance in Grief.

"Forgiveness was the hardest decision to make, but it is necessary for closure."

The High Court on Wednesday, March 13 sentenced Jowie to death for the 2018 murder of businesswoman Monica Kimani.

Monica was brutally murdered in her Nairobi residence at Lamuria Gardens, in Kilimani on September 19, 2018.

According to Justice Nzioka, the prosecution presented sufficient evidence beyond any reasonable doubt that Jowie murdered Monica.

While delivering the verdict, Justice Grace Nzioka said that Jowie Irungu ‘shall suffer death as provided for the offence of murder under Section 204 of the Penal Code of Kenya’.

The judge noted that there were only three options in sentencing Irungu which included a term of years, life imprisonment or death.

Under the law of Kenya, anyone who intentionally, with malice aforethought, causes the death of another person is guilty of the crime of murder.
