Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) Noordin Haji has filed an application at the High Court seeking to have Joseph Irungu popularly known as Jowie's bond cancelled.
This is after the DPP accused him of violating the terms of his release as stipulated by the court.
Jowie is on trial for the murder of Nairobi businesswoman Monica Kimani. The High Court will rule on whether to cancel his bond on September 28, 2021.
DPP told the court that Jowie allegedly got into a fight in June at club 1824 in Nairobi’s Lang’ata area where he is said to have assaulted one Rodgers Okuga.
Though the case was withdrawn, Haji's office argues that the suspect committed an offence.
According to the DPP, Jowie has also given interviews on YouTube where he has discussed matters pertaining to the case as directed not to by Justice James Wakiaga.
The DPP further told the court that Jowie leaves in Nairobi and not with his parents as he had told the court when he was granted bail.
Persuant of the above mentioned reasons, the DPP sort to have his bond cancelled and sent back to prison.
Jowie was charged with the murder of Monica Kimani, but pleaded not guilty.
So far, over 20 witnesses have testified in the case against Jowie and his co-accused, Jacquie Maribe.
Among the witness who appeared before Justice Wakiaga was Mr. Lee Omondi, who identified Jowie as the last person seen with Ms. Kimani before she was found dead in her house in Nairobi.
Omondi, a friend of the late Monica, described their final moments at her house at Lamuria Gardens Apartments before he left her in the company of Jowie.
Jacque and Jowie have denied murdering Monica on the night of September 19 and September 20, 2018.
Her lifeless body was found in her bathroom.
