Deejay Bird Highest wrote, "Her name was Monicah or rather Monnie ukipenda, she was jovial, friendly and social. Ni dem alipenda sana mtaa yake Mukuru Kwa Njenga. She was an actress very beautiful out and inside her soul too but today we remain with nothing but memories of how she was."
Adding, "Many who connected or came across her, we/her friends too remain in sorrow and sad tears for losing such a young soul murdered by her hubby, a bullet of no reason to release it from its chamber to murder her for the name of so-called #Love."
He continued, "Will justice be served for our beloved #Monnie? Will whoever did this be found and brought to justice? For how long we'll we keep losing young women and men in the name of love? Will toxic relationships ever end? These are the question's that remain with all of us. Today it's her, tomorrow might be your sister, mum, dad, brother, uncle, aunty or you, yes you the one reading this. #TakeAction #JusticeForMonicah. Rest In Peace Dear Monnie Forever Be Remembered In Our Broken Hearts."
