Ever since this case, Itumbi is among Maribes’s friends who stood by her and even made several appearances at the court during the case hearing.
Although some Kenyans assumed that Jowie and Itumbi might not be in good terms considering that Itumbi is rumored to have dated Maribe; Itumbi on several occasions expressed his goodwill intentions to Jowie.
His reaction adds up to those of many Kenyans who have been crying out for Jowie’s bail to be granted just like how other politicians who were caught up in similar cases were allowed freedom.
Jowie’s release comes as a great relief to the suspect considering that he has been behind bars since September 25, 2018.
Following his release, Jowie was instructed by Justice Wakiaga not to comment on the case in the media including social media or anywhere else. In addition, the former private security contractor was ordered to check in with his area chief at the end of every month.
