Moments after High Court judge Justice Grace Nzioka delivered a guilty verdict in the murder case of Monica Kimani, Joseph Irungu alias Jowie released a new gospel song.
Titled “Nakuabudu,” the song was uploaded on Jowie Irungu’s YouTube channel at 2 pm on Friday, February 9.
Despite the weight of the court charges hanging over him, Jowie’s latest track has emerged as a testament to his spiritual journey and perhaps a plea for redemption.
“Nakuabudu,” a worship gospel track, is anchored around the themes of repentance and seeking solace in God’s embrace.
In the song’s lyrics, Jowie sings, “Mikononi mwako Yesu, narejea. Miguuni mwako Yesu, nalilia,” conveying his return to God’s arms and his tears of contrition.
The release of this song comes on the heels of a landmark ruling in the five-year-long case.
Jowie Releases New Love Song
His new gospel track comes months after he dropped a love jam immediately after a court postponed the ruling of the case against him and ex-Citizen Tv journalist Jacque Maribe.
The song titled Babie gave assurance to a woman that everything would be alright.
According to the 3 minutes song, Jowie pleads with a leaving lady not to go as things would be okay in the end.
“Sikuamini amesema kakitu nako kameisha, na hio stori yeye hataki kusikia, babie hold on, it’s gonna be alright it’s gonna be alright,” read the lyrics of the song.
Court Final Charges
The High Court of Kenya found Jowie guilty for the murder of the late Monica Kimani, in a case that also involved his ex-fiancé, Jacque Maribe.
On her part, Maribe breathed a sigh of relief after Justice Nzioka acquitted her of the charges pressed against her.
Monica Kimani’s tragic death in her Lamuria Garden Apartment in September 2018 has left a lasting impact.
In her ruling, Justice Nzioka’s meticulous examination of the evidence led to the conclusion that Jowie was responsible for Kimani’s murder, setting the stage for his sentencing on March 8, 2024.
“Therefore, it is the finding of this court that the prosecution has proved beyond a reasonable doubt all the ingredients of the offence of murder, the death that occurred, the cause of death and the person who committed that offence. It was not a case of homicide, it was unlawful. Therefore, I find the first accused person guilty as charged herein of the offence of murder,” ruled justice Nzioka.
As the public comes into terms with the outcome of the trial, Jowie’s decision to release a gospel song amidst his legal battle adds another layer to the complex narrative surrounding his case.
