Comedian Eunice Mammito has found herself in the middle of a storm, after creating a skit related to the sentencing of Joseph Kuria Irungu, alias Jowie.

On Wednesday, Jowie was handed a murder sentence by High Court judge Grace Nzioka, a month after being found guilty of the murder of business woman Monica Kimani, in 2018.

The judge said Kimani’s murder was intentional.
“It was not a defensive act. It was not out of provocation. It was planned, intended and executed,” said the judge.

“Based on what I have said, I have ordered that the first accused before this court, Joseph Kuria Irungu alias Jowie, shall suffer death as provided for the offence of murder under section 204 of the penal code of Kenya. That is the order of the court.”
After delivery of the verdict, Mammito posted a skit on her social media platforms, making a ‘light moment’ on Jowie’s sentence.

The skit, inform of a song urged Jowie to see the sentence as an opportunity to ‘scam Kenyans.’
Kenyans united in calling the comedian out for being insensitive to Jowie, his family and the family of the late Monica Kimani.

Instead of feeling remorseful, the comedian said the fact that Kenyans had united in condemning her, fighting corruption will not be difficult fighting corruption.

“I have witnessed a very rare occurrence something that has not happened since 2002 people from every background uniting together for a reason, to cook me,” she postedin her social media pages.
She claimed she was being called out because of her physical features, which include being a thin woman.

“It gives me hope for the future that one day we shall unite and fight against corruption and other things ailing our country. Am in hot fire now, my soul weeps. I am but a small thin woman with no buttocks and am not as attractive, how dare I joke about a beautiful accused person, but your unity how it fills my soul!”

Kenyans have equally and roundly condemned her for her response.
