Juba, 26th October 2018. South Sudan President Salva Kiir says he will not interfere with the investigation into the murder of Monica Kimani even after one of his Generals; Awet Akot was linked to the incident.
Speaking on Jeff Koinange Live or JKL, Kiir states that he will not stop detectives from questioning General Akot’s alleged ties to Monica.
He however observed that those who may have been involved in her business might not necessarily be South Sudanese.
The president states that there are business people of all nationalities in South Sudan and some of them might have been involved in Monica’s business.
During the show, he expressed his sorrow at the loss of her life and stated that the culprits must be dealt with.
According to Capital news Citizen TV journalist Jacque Maribe and her fiancé Joseph Irungu alias Jowie who are suspects in the case will know their bail fate next week after they pleaded afresh to the charge of murder jointly with others not before court.
Royal Media Services insists Maribe is still an employee and has supported her release on bail.
In documents filed by her lawyers, the Royal Media Services stated that she has taken leave to attend to personal issues.
Group Managing Director Wachira Waruru further points out that Maribe has had a clean record and also vouched for her character while recommending that she be released as she will not jump bail.
