Jacque Maribe gave a witness account which might have a new twist in the court case involving Monica Kimani’s murder case, the court has discovered.
According to Justice Grace Nzioka, Maribe was open to her earlier statement being used as evidence in court.
The court subsequently granted the go-ahead of her statement to be used in court.
“The second accused person who recorded the statement has no objection to the statement being admitted as evidence and this court cannot deny her an opportunity to adduce whatever evidence she so wishes to,” uttered the judge on the said matter.
On the other hand, Joseph Irungu’s (alias Jowie) lawyer opposed the said admission saying it would adversely serve as an implication on his client.
The judge’s decision on the matter was absolute and this meant that Maribe would be allowed to use her confession in court today.
Jowie’s lawyer, however, wasn’t wholly convinced by this decision.
“We are objecting to the admission of the statement which appears like a confession against Joseph Irungu. The statement is like an indictment against him. The prosecution cannot be allowed to rely on it as evidence,” Irungu’s lawyer stated.
