Where is my son? - Jowie Irungu's mother

Jowie Irungu's mother Anastacia reveals he was moved from Kamiti Maximum Security Prison to Manyani Prison

Anastacia, mother to murder suspect Joseph Irungu alias Jowie, is a worried woman after his son was moved from Kamiti Maximum Security Prison.

Speaking to reporters, Anastacia revealed that she went to Kamiti to visit him on Monday and was informed that he had been moved to Manyani Maximum Security Prison in Taita Taveta.

She further raised concerns that she could not ascertain if he was unharmed since she was not allowed to see him before he was moved.

"It's like they want to do something to him. The prison officer says it's a normal transfer but our lawyer says he has never heard of something like that," she stated.

Anastacia told reporters that she could not be certain that Jowie had been transported to Manyani, saying that she would make the trip to find her son.

Jowie's case postoned

The High Court is yet to give a ruling on Jowie's bail application even as hearing of the murder trial kicked off last month.

Justice James Wakiaga postponed the ruling on Jowie's application to February 2020, leaving Jowie to spend another Christmas behind bars.

Jowie is the prime suspect in the murder of business woman Monica kimani with his co-accused being former Citizen TV anchor Jackie Maribe.
