Inside Monica Kimani’s apartment after the gruesome murder

Published

on

The attention and curiosity of Kenyans have been held hostage by the ongoing trial into the murder of businesswoman Monica Kimani at her posh apartment at Lamuria Gardens.

Monicah was known for living a luxurious life, anything she ever wished for, she got, from visiting exotic locations to driving expensive machines.

In court, the scene of crime police officer Jennifer Sirwa showed the court pictures of the gory murder scene.

Monicah’s neck had been slit from ear to ear. Her mouth was taped shut, her hands tied at the back. Her feet were also bound.

One of the images, produced in court was that of Monica dressed in a green nightdress in a bathtub. Her feet were raised and a six-centimetre slit on her neck is visible.

On her henna-tattooed arms were white sealing straps. A length of tape covered her mouth.

Sirwa said she suspected that Monica was killed in the living room and the body dragged to the bathroom.

“There was a towel soaked in blood which we suspect could have been used to wipe the blood from the living room,” she said.

Defence lawyer Hassan Nandwa (for Joseph Irungu) claimed that Monica could have died of starvation since the postmortem examination did not indicate any food in her stomach.

Nandwa asked pathologist Peter Ndegwa: “Did you open her oesophagus to ascertain the food Monica took that day? Did you open her stomach? Could we suggest that the cause of her death was as a result of starvation because there was no food in the stomach?”

The lawyer had also said the cut on Monica’s neck could have been inflicted when she was already dead.

Ndegwa said, “There was bleeding. Dead bodies do not bleed. She had a visibly slit throat and blood oozing from her nose.”

The postmortem was done on September 24 at Chiromo mortuary.

Monica, according to the pathologist, died as a result of a wound caused by a sharp object. He body had bruises on one of the wrists. Both wrists were bound with a sealing tape.

“The body belonged to a 28-year-old, in a wet, bloodstained maroon and white bed cover. She was dressed in a blue and green free flowing dress,” Ndegwa said.

There was a light moment that prompted the judge to ask the packed room if “they were there for a soap opera or a Nigerian movie” shifted drastically when the second pathologist presented the gory pictures.

Before the gory murder, Monica shared photos of her posh apartment on her Instagram.
