Kasaine told the Police that Jowie told him that he wanted to burn some stuff and had used some air freshener “while pointing towards the empty plot across their house.”

DCI’s lead investigator Maxwell Otieno gave 12 reasons why he concludes that Jowie was directly involved in the murder.

Mr Otieno also highlighted five reasons on why Maribe should be charged.


According to DCI’s Otieno reveals that tests by the Government Chemist in a report reference A 199/2018 dated December 13, 2018, confirmed that DNA profile generated from a short Jowie wore on the day of the murder marched that generated from Monica’s blood sample.

“After the commission of the crime, the accused person burnt the clothes he was wearing at the scene of crime at the second accused residence in her presence,” Reads part of Otieno’s statement.

Another revelation in the case has that Jowie changed into a different set of clothes before he went to see Monica in her house.

“The accused changed and dressed in a white kanzu, grey
coat and red cap in the immediate presence of Jennings Olando (a Recce squad officer who also had been arrested during investigations). These were the same clothes that he was putting on while at the residence of the deceased on a fateful day as confirmed by Owen, Walid and guards at the Lamuria gardens apartments,”
Otieno’s statement reads.


Jowie was in the same red cap at Club 40 Forty on the night of the murder and witnesses say he had the same red cap at Monica’s house.

“After the commission of the crime, the accused person burnt the clothes he was wearing at the scene of crime at the second accused residence in her presence. “  Said DCI detective Maxwell Otieno.

Kasaine said that Monica introduced Jowie to Walid and Owen as someone who works with the Interpol when they sat in her house.

He indicates that Jowie at one time commented on the live news that “They (Interpol) him included had arrested 19 terrorists in Lamu who were to be ferried to Nairobi for deportation.”

Investigations revealed that Jowie claimed to be wearing a kanzu to enable him “blend with the Somali community since he alleged that he resides in Eastleigh.”


“When Owen said that he desired a firearm for protection purposes, the 1st accused offered that he was going to assist him to acquire one either through the legal or illegal process,” Otieno’s statement says.

“Owen confirmed that while in the deceased house, Jowie received several phone calls whereby he would move aside and speak in coded language over the phone.”

Otieno’s statement reveals that a gardener accessed Monica’s house through a window and found her in a bathtub.

The Gardener got out and informed Monica’s brother who was waiting outside her house and this is when they broke the door before calling the Police.

The Police believed that Jowie murdered Monica because he had informed Jennings of who he was going to see.

“He informed Jennings Olando whom he was with that he was going to visit a lady friend who had just arrived from South Sudan,” Otieno’s statement reads.

Otieno’s Statement says that on September 19, 2018, Monica flew from Juba and landed at JKIA at around 5.30pm.

Investigations into the murder have revealed that Maribe’s car was at the scene of the crime and she was seen in it on the later that very night.

“The accused person witnessed the burning of the clothes by the first accused on the night of the incident near her residence,” This is the second supporting evidence.

Maribe’s phone was also within the same area of the incident and before being switched off at about 10.25pm and switched on at around 9:52 am the same day.


The Police autopsy records indicate that Monica died at around the same time Maribe’s phone went off.

“Considering the above, it is evident that the accused persons jointly murdered the deceased,” Otieno’s statement reads.

Maribe’s contradicting statements on how Jowie had sustained his gunshot injury also depicts her as “dishonest”

Her alibis on the murder date are also not believable.

Maribe was also spotted with Jowie at Club 40 Forty almost immediately after the murder and was spotted too near the scene of the crime.


Kasaine also narrated the events of the night of September 21, 2018, when he found Jowie bleeding at his gate.

“He was shouting at his fiancee Jacqueline Maribe immediately he saw her there saying ‘you want me out of your house, it is fine, bury me in Lang’ata’ then went quiet. Jacqueline didn’t answer him,” reads Kasaine’s statement.

Kasaine told the Police that Maribe told him that Jowie shot himself when he, Jowie, told Kasaine to secure the weapon.

According to Kasaine, Jowie couldn’t be admitted to Lang’ata Hospital and Nairobi West Hospital without a deposit of Sh50,000.

Jowie passed by the Lang’ata police station the following evening and reported the matter as a shooting incident then later went to Lang’ata Hospital for gun wound dressing.


Kasaine said that Jowie had been advised to do so by someone he, Jowie, didn’t name.
