Joseph Irungu Gets Emotional After Meeting Mother in Court

  • There was an emotional moment on Monday after Joseph Kuria Irungu alias 'Joe Jowie' met his mother in court.

    Jowie, who is the chief suspect in the murder of Monica Nyawira Kimani, had been presented in court to take his plea alongside Citizen TV journalist Jacque Maribe.

    As the suspects waited in the docks for judge Jessie Lessit to get into the courtroom, Jowie's mother walked over to where her son was standing.

    The two engage in a prolonged emotional embrace before the mother broke the hug and went back to her seat among the audience at Milimani Law Courts.

    When Jowie took his seat, he took a crouching posture and appeared to wipe tears off his eyes epitomizing the emotional encounter with his mother.

    A similar moment was witnessed on October 9 between Jacque and her father Mzee Mwangi Maribe.

    Jacque and Jowie were making an appearance in court in the mention of their case.

    Mzee Mwangi kept her daughter company as she checked-in at the court registry where she clinched at him.

    They later engaged in some chat and banter before the court session commenced.

    Both the Irungu and Maribe family have in the past maintained that their son and daughter, respectively, are innocent with the two equally affirming the position by denying the charges on Monday.
