‘He does not need surgery’ KNH Surgeon confirms Jowies medical condition



Jowies hearing is still ongoing and today, a surgeon from Kenyatta National Hospital gave the court full details on Jowie’s medical condition.

Jowi is in remand after being charged as a suspect in the murder of businesswoman  Monica Kimani’s death a few months ago.

Jowie suffered an injury on his left arm in September around the same time that the body of Monica Kimani was discovered at her apartment in Lamuria Gardens, Kilimani.

Jowie told police he sustained the injury after an attack right after dropping Jacque Maribe at her house.

Benjamin Wabwire, a surgeon at the Kenyatta National Hospital, told the court that he had ‘obvious weakness of the hand’.

He had a nerve injury affecting the hand ….our initial plan was to do an MRI…the report is that the nerves are intact…He suffered from “shock wave 

Dr. Wabwire said as reported by Citizen TV Kenya.

According to the doctor, the suspect does not need surgery but urgently requires physiotherapy to stimulate the affected nerves.

On the issue of granting Jowie bail, the Prosecution held it be argued before the trial judge.
