New details have emerged on where Jacque Maribe’s fiancé Joseph Irungu alias Jowie might have ‘stolen’ an ID to go commit the murder of Monicah Kimani.
When he was arrested on the 25th September 2018, police discovered that he had registered himself as Dominic with the security personnel at the gate of where Monicah Kimani lived in Kilimani.

The national Identity Card murder suspect Jowie Irungu used to gain access to Monica Kimani’s apartment had been reported missing two days earlier.
The ID card belongs to Dominic Bisela, a casual worker at a construction site within Royal Park apartments where Jowie and his television journalist girlfriend, Jacque Maribe, live in Lang’ata estate, Nairobi.
The ID card went missing on September 17, two days before Monica was found with her throat slit at her Lamuria Gardens pad off Dennis Pritt Road, Nairobi.
Police are still holding Jowie as the prime suspect in the murder and Maribe as an “accessory to the murder” of Monica Kimani.
Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) boss George Kinoti told The Nairobian that Bisela’s ID card was reported missing from the sentry box where other identification cards were left by construction workers.
Kinoti explained that Bisela,
“did not find his ID in the evening after completing duty at the construction site. He informed the guard to be on the lookout for the card just in case it had been misplaced from the rest of the IDs.”
Here are reasons why Jowie opted to ‘steal’ the mans identity card
1. The stolen ID would be easy to dispose and it would be hard to track him down.
2. Revenge Motive
In some cases, the motivation for identity theft is more personal than financial. Jilted lovers, former friends, bickering business partners and even family members can use identity theft to shatter the lives of those they feel have wronged them
3. Concealment of Other Crimes
Some identity thieves use their stolen information as a tool to commit even bigger crimes. They may cover their tracks by implicating the true owner of the stolen identity in their crimes.
