It has now emerged the Jowie Irungu was not alone in the apartment. 73 DNA samples taken from Monicah’s apartment proved that he was indeed present when Monicah died.
According to a five-page report by Joseph Kagunda Kimani, the government analyst
"DNA GENERATED FROM MONICAH’S PILLOW AND A REAR SEAT MATCHED THE DNA SAMPLES OF JOSEPH IRUNGU ALIAS JOWIE.
TWO DNA PROFILES WERE GENERATED FROM THE SAMPLES,THEY WERE OF AN UNIDENTIFIED MAN AND A WOMAN."
Jennings Odhiambo was also among other suspects to have been arrested by homicide detectives in connection to the murder.
According to Monicah’s brother George Thiru, she was scheduled to meet them on that fateful morning after landing from Southern Sudan where she was taking care of their family business ‘Millipaul General Trading’ named after their parents.
However, their numerous calls went unanswered raising eyebrows.
Her mother after noticing Monicah is not picking calls, requested George to go to her apartment and check her whereabouts.
Upon knocking the door several times with no response, they requested permission from the landlord to be allowed to break in and permission was granted.
That was when the case was exposed and investigations began.
Jacque Maribe who was also a suspect spent a few days in remand but was released on bail.
