Jowie Irungu and Eunice Mammito

Comedian Eunice Mammito has elicited wild reactions among a section of Kenyans following her latest comedy skit on Joseph Irungu alias Jowie's death sentence.

The comedian released a short clip on her socials making fun of Jowie and the sentence he had been given.

However, a section of Netizens were quick to castigate the comedian saying her skit was in bad test.

Others argued that she should have taught of Jowie's family before releasing the clip to the public.

Here are a few comments on what Kenyans had to say;

felixhabibi If it was the other way round would she still create this ? Nooo

mozz_njau Maybe she's Monica's personal friend and happy at the verdict. Remember however harsh the sentence might be, there are people happy about it especially those affected by the murder

abbeymickey_ Personally I got chauffered by a person who has spent 7 years in prison. That man made me realise how prison is actually a living hell. It's not funny. It's sad. It's way too unfriendly and this post isn't funny at all.

Jowie's Sentencing

On Wednesday, March 13, 20924, Joseph 'Jowie' Irungu was  sentenced to death, over the murder of businesswoman Monica Kimani by Justice Grace Nzioka of the High Court of Kenya.

“I, therefore, order that the first accused person being Joseph Kuria Irungu alias Jowie shall suffer death as provided for the offence of murder under section 204 of the penal code of Kenya unless that sentence is set aside by a court of competent jurisdiction,” Justice Nzioka said.

The judgment came after the court found Jowie guilty of Kimani's murder.

Justice Nzioka in February said the prosecution had proven beyond reasonable doubt that Jowie murdered Monica Kimani.

Jowie’s sentencing was initially set for Friday, March 8, but was pushed to Wednesday.

Monica Kimani, who was brutally killed on the night of September 19, 2018, at her Lamuria Gardens apartment in Nairobi.

"Having considered the evidence in this matter it is the finding of this court that the prosecution has adduced adequate evidence and has met the threshold... It is the finding of this court that the first accused person murdered the deceased," ruled Justice Grace Nzioka.

Former TV news anchor Jacque Maribe, who was charged alongside Jowie was however, acquitted of the murder charge.

Nzioka said the count of murder was not the proper charge that the prosecution would have preferred against her.

She said the prosecution did not place Maribe at the scene of crime.
