Word on the street is that despite being released on bail, Citizen TV presenter Jacque Maribe is yet to be released due to a delay in the process.
This is despite the fact that the bond being paid.
Jacque’s friend Dennis Itumbi took to his twitter to rant about the slow process citing frustration.
“THREAD: Interesting events at the Deputy Registrar in the High Court. We completed the bond process for our friend Jacque Maribe at 12pm and till now no progress & she is looking at another night in prison despite being freed by The Court yesterday. Let me tell you of the games”
Yesterday, the same games were employed. The Deputy Registrar declined to sign the letter commiting documents to land registry and registrar of persons yesterday. We decided to wait for today
This morning family and friends reported at the High Court at 7am and the Deputy Registrar signed a letter that was on her desk from last evening at 11am. No problem with that, we can live with that….
Problem is after that we were told there is an order that “UPON release the investigating officer and the advocate will take an inventory of house” we argued that is UPON release. So they dropped that line…
Next we needed a prosecutor from
@ODPP_KE and obviously none was willing to get on record. So we decided to tweet.
Just after the first tweet the calls that were not being picked by
@DCI_Kenya and @ODPP_KE officials are now being returned quick and fast…..Asanteni
Maribe was released yesterday on a 1 million cash bail with a surety of the same. The other option was a bond of 2 million with 3 sureties of the same.
