Police reports indicate that Jowie, the main suspect in Monica Kimani’s murder used an identification card belonging to Dominic Bisela to access her apartment, Lamuria Gardens off Dennis Pritt.

Jowie, who was dressed in a kanzu and a cap that night, presented the ID at the gate to the night guard before he was allowed in.

Dominic, a security guard with Lavington Security, was later arrested at his Kibera home by detectives and he revealed what happened. He told the police that two days before Monica was murdered, he was invited by a friend to a construction (mjengo) job at Royal Park Estate in Lang’ata where Jacque and Jowie lived.

According to Bisela, he surrendered his ID at the gate as it is customary for construction workers to leave their identity cards at the gate with the site guard.

But after he was done with the day’s work and it was time to leave, he was shocked when he was told by the guard that his ID was missing. Bisela had no choice but leave his mobile phone number and asked the site management to call him in case they found it.
