Citizen TV’s Jacque Maribe’s fiance, Joe Irungu alias Jowie Joe has been arrested in connection with the brutal murder of 28 year old, Monica Nyawira Kimani.
Monica was found dead in her apartment along Dennis Pritt road on Thursday shortly after jetting back from South Sudan.
Her lifeless body was discovered by her brother and sister after unsuccessfully trying to reach her the night before.
They found her in the bath tub with her throat slit.
Jowie, a known party animal, is apparently a trained mercenary for hire. He works in the UAE as a bouncer and sometimes works with politicians as a private security guard.

Reports indicated that Ms Kimani was in the company of a white man, a neighbour when three other men, known to her showed up. The third man, in a white kanzu who identified himself as a pastor is said to have killed her in cold blood.
Police have arrested Jowie who is suspected to have shot himself in the shoulder on Friday and taken to the hospital by the Citizen TV reporter.
Maribe has also been questioned and has admitted to having taken her boyfriend to the hospital on the said day.
Jowie is said to have dropped Maribe off at her Royal Park Estate apartment when he noticed three men hanging around the gate. The three men allegedly shot the bouncer and then took off using a motorbike.
The Nation reports that the suspect’s mobile phone was traced to Luciane Apartments, the deceased’s home, on the night she died. He is also said to have picked her up at the airport and drove her home.
Police could not corroborate the shooting incident as claimed by the man as no cartridges were found. The neighbors and guards on duty say they did not hear any gunshots on the said day.
