Murder suspect Joseph Irungu alias Jowie on Monday had an emotional embrace with his mother in court moments before he took a plea.
Jowie beckoned his mother to come to the stand and gave her a long emotional hug.
His mother seemed emotional and Jowie too balanced some tears as they had their one-minute embrace.
This is the first public appearance by Jowie’s parents. They were previously interviewed on NTV where they opted to remain anonymous.
His co-accused journalist Jacque Maribe has on the contrary had the open support of her parents.
Maribe’s father specifically became a subject of discussion after their Tuesday appearance in court where he cheered her up.
