“Justice for Jowie. Boychild is under siege. Jowie is languishing in prison yet its just a murder case like that of Sarah Wairimu. Why is we living in a country this much injustice?,” Kyle Mutange
“Stella Mutuku has proved it that Kenya loves her own and foreigners have no place here. Jowie was denied bail but Sarah Wairimu is free. This confirms that, it is more than just a Crime of Passion. Campaign funding may have been part of the deal. But is anyone asking?,” John Kimani wrote.
