Joseph Irungu’s family has appealed to Kenyans to raise funds so as to release Jowie from prison through cash bail.
Jowie’s sister spoke to K24 where she revealed that friends and family had already contributed Ksh 80,000 through a pay bill number set up by Jowie’s friend, Joe Muchiri.
We are looking to raise the fee that has been requested by the court, to have him out from Kamiti. As a family, we are pleading with fellow Kenyans for contributions
She assured Kenyans that their donations would be used appropriately and that the family would be willing to make available receipts and bank statements.
According to her, Jowie was returned to Kamiti Maximum prison on Friday after failing to pay the bail money. She was confident that the funds would be raised in no time and added that Jowie would go for counselling after being released.
We would recommend Joseph Irungu goes for counselling after he is released. We are not sure what he was subjected to when he was in remand. As a family, we will stand by him,
Jowie was granted a cash bail of Ksh 2 million or Ksh 3 million bonds by the court after spending 18 months in prison. Justice James Wakiaga granted the bail saying that the prosecution had failed to provide sufficient reason why he should continue to remain in remand.
