Joseph Irungu alias Jowie, the main suspect in the Monica Kimani murder case, and his co-accused Jacque Maribe on Wednesday took plea afresh.

The Defence team said it had no objection to a proposal to amend the charge sheet to include other suspects not present before the court.

This comes days after another suspect Jennings Orlando Odhiambo, a Recce Squad officer attached to the U.S. embassy was arrested in connection with the murder case.

On Wednesday, an attempt by Empowering Africa through Media, a non-governmental organisation, to participate in the case hit a snag after the State Prosecutor objected.

“…the NGO is a stranger in this matter …..they have not applied to be enjoined in this matter and therefore we are objecting to them in participating in this trial for they are not for state or the accused persons,” Catherine Mwaniki for the Prosecution said.

Justice James Wakiaga responded saying the NGO should file a formal application to tell the court their interest in this matter.
