“All my known and unknown friends let me down” Jowie opens up about the betrayal he faced while in Kamiti prison

In life there are no friends! Family will always come first and this is a lesson Joseph Irungu popularly known as Jowie learnt the hard way.

As we all know, Jowie was linked to the murder of Monica Kimani believed to be his lover. However since the case is still ongoing, the fella prefers talking about his life in prison.

As soon as he was released on KSh.2 million cash bail, Jowie says he decided to lay low; as he evaluated himself and some of the mistakes he made unknowingly – all thanks to the bad company he had been keeping.

Speaking to Jalang’o for the first time, Jowie confessed that he is now a changed man – who needed the wake up call to realize his life was heading the wrong direction.
