I Will Visit Jowie In Prison when I Return To Kenya, Monica Kimani’s Father Says,My Daughter Can’t Come Back.

Bishop Paul Ngarama, father of the late Monica Kimani, a businesswoman tragically murdered, has expressed his intention to visit Joseph Kimani, also known as Jowie, who was convicted and sentenced for her murder. This gesture, according to Bishop Ngarama, symbolizes his commitment to forgiveness and reconciliation.

Since 2018, Bishop Ngarama’s family has endured profound emotional distress. He believes that genuine healing can only be achieved through forgiveness and reconciliation. In an interview with Kenya Diaspora Media in Washington, Kimani’s father extended an appeal to Jowie, urging him to seek forgiveness. He expressed his readiness to let go of resentment and even offered to visit Jowie in prison if he ever returns to Kenya.

“I want to appeal to Jowie to come forward; he knows he needs forgiveness from me. I am prepared to forgive him. If I ever return to Kenya, I am willing to visit him in prison,” he conveyed. “Let’s leave the past behind and focus on the future. We understand that things happen, and we trust that God has a purpose for all of us.”

Jowie was found guilty of Monica Kimani’s murder, a crime that occurred on the night of September 19, 2018, at her residence in Lamuria Gardens, Nairobi. Bishop Ngarama has pledged to facilitate reconciliation among the three families affected by the tragic incident over the past six years.

He stressed the importance of forgiveness among his family, Jowie’s family, and even the acquitted co-accused, Jackie Maribe’s family, as a means of closure. Bishop Ngarama believes that forgiving Jowie, even before the court’s verdict, has initiated his own healing process, guided by his faith.

“It’s crucial to unite the three families and seek forgiveness despite the circumstances because one day Jowie might be released from prison, despite being sentenced to death,” Ngarama emphasized. “Let’s come together and put this issue to rest because none of us truly know what transpired. Healing is what we need the most.”

Currently pursuing his Ph.D. in counseling psychology at the Full Bright Theological Seminary, Ngarama urged the Office of the Director of Public Prosecution not to press charges against Maribe for allegedly falsifying evidence during her initial statements about Jowie’s gunshot wound.

Despite the court’s ruling sentencing Jowie to death for Monica Kimani’s murder, Bishop Ngarama remains committed to the path of forgiveness and reconciliation, believing that these actions are paramount for healing and closure.
