Citizen TV news anchor Jacque Maribe’s fiancé Joe Irungu popularly known as Jowie is in custody over the murder of Monica Kimani.
Monica Kimani was found dead at her apartment along Dennis Pritt road in Kilimani road last Friday.
“We have the suspect in custody. We have every reason to believe the suspect was involved in the murder. We are also trying to ascertain if he was shot or inflicted the wound on himself because the story he is giving is not consistent,” said a police statement
Earlier, it was reported that Joe had been attacked and shot on his chest as he dropped Monica off at her place in Kilimani after picking her up from a club in the same area.
Police said that there was no shooting reported at that area at the time he reportedly said he been shot.
Joe was allegedly shot by three unknown men who were waiting on a motor cycle in front of Monica’s apartment as he was dropping her off.
The assailants did not rob them of anything.
He told police he had arrived at the Royal Park Estate last week on Friday morning to drop off the lady when he noticed three men standing at the entrance.
