Lee Omondi, who is a witness in the murder case, told the court that the deceased introduced the main suspect Joseph Irungu, alias Jowie to him as an Interpol officer. 

Omondi also said that Kimani had told him that Jowie worked closely with the Ofice of the President.

He also said that during the meeting, he met a neighbour, by the name Walid. Kimani said that Walid had visited her after she returned from Southern Sudan. 

While appearing before Justice James Wakiaga, Omondi noted that he visited the deceased on September 19, 2018. He claimed that he had gone there to collect some documents. 

Omondi, however, did not reveal the kind of materials he had gone to obtain from the home of the deceased.  Omondi, who reportedly met Monica in Juba, had identified Jowie during a parade at the court. 

He said that the suspect was wearing a grey blazer, Muslim skull cap, and white gown. He further said that when he asked why Jowie had decided to dress in such a manner, he said he felt like doing so for a change.

"He never puts on a gown, but today he did,” he told the court.

Omondi further testified that Jowie had told him that he was just back from an operation in Lamu. He further told the court that Jowie allegedly had another house in Eastleigh.
