Tuesday November 27, 2018 - Joseph Irungu alias Jowie, the main suspect in Monica Kimani’s murder case, now claims that he is being tortured at Kamiti Maximum Prison.
This was revealed by Jowie’s defence team which told the court that they had just learnt of his transfer to Kamiti Prison.
According to them, Jowie is being mistreated and has not been given medical attention for his gunshot wound as ordered by police.
“My client has not been given the specialized treatment at KNH (Kenyatta National Hospital)…we are also told that he was transferred to Kamiti and there are issues that have been raised by Jowie in regards to torture,” the lawyers said.
“He was denied admission at KNH…Despite the family paying Ksh.20,000 for his admission as advised by one doctor, the hospital denied him admission,” they added.
They further added that the only medication Jowie has received are painkillers and now want his status at Kamiti reviewed.
