‘We vowed to stay best of friends’ Eric Omondi reveals how he met Maribe

Eric Omondi was interviewed this week by one of the radio stations in Kenya, with the man revealing a lot about his past. One of the things he talked about was his relationship with Jacque Maribe that has become the talk of the town after the revelation that he was the father of her son.

How did he meet the former Citizen TV presenter? He divulged that the two met while they were working at Radio Africa. At the time, he worked for Radio Jambo while Maribe was a reporter at Kiss TV.

‘Tulikutana na Jacque Maribe akiwa anafanya hapa. Mimi nilikuwa nafanya Radio Jambo, yeye alikuwa anafanya Kiss TV. Alikuwa reporter Kiss TV. Tukapatana tukakuwa marafiki sana. Tukaenda date pale Java Sarit Center,’ he said.

The comedian explained that the first date that the two had was at the Java at Sarit Center with their friendship growing overtime, even after they both left the media Group for other jobs.  ‘Tukawa marafiki na mimi nikatoka hata yeye akatoka akenda Citizen. Since then were tight.’ he added.

Jacque has a way of getting the very best out of her male friends and Eric is no different. The comic revealed that the two decided to remain best of friends no matter what happens,

‘We’re the best of friends na sisi tunajiambia kila siku whatever happens, we’ll remain best of friends. Tunajikumbusha kila siku. She’s a true friend,” said Eric Omondi.

In the interview, Eric also talked of his friendship with poet laureate Dennis Itumbi stating that they are very good friends. They are such good friends that when Jacque revealed that Zahari was Eric’s son, Dennis (who had been rumoured to have something for Maribe) was quick to congratulate the pair.

Is she dating Eric Omondi, Itumbi or Jowie? Jacque Maribe comes clean

Jacque Maribe has a lot to say and she is doing so on her Instagram page. Don’t forget that the former Citizen TV anchor had not posted on her page for one year since her arrest in connection with the murder of Monica Kimani.

But now Jacque has decided to speak up and has stoked a lot of interest in her page after revealing that Eric Omondi is the father of her son, Zahari.

What has ensued is a slew of questions from fans and followers curious as to who she was dating? Was it Eric Omondi, was it poet laureate, Dennis Itumbi or did her former fiance Jowie have a place in her heart.

Jacque was very patient but categorical with her answer replying, ‘Nilitangaza hukuona. Niko single AF. Those are my friends.’

A cheeky follower even asked whether it was ‘friends with benefits’, to which Miss Maribe denied. Check out the screenshots below;

Apart from Dennis, Eric and Jowie, there are two other men who have been linked romantically with Jacque.

The comedian who was found conning people last year was rumoured to have dated the T.V anchor. There is a photo of the two together in a very very very friendly pose.

There is also a prominent journalist who was linked to Jacque but the rumours were never substantiated.

Take care of your son first! Itumbi told after supporting Maribe’s family

Dennis Itumbi has re-emerged and yes, he has done so after the news that Zahari is Eric Omondi and Jacque Maribe’s love child. The man who doesn’t miss an opportunity to celebrate anything Maribe related, decided to take the opportunity to write another poem about his favouritest person in the world.

Dennis Itumbi sued for child support , accused of wanting the lady to abort

This isn’t the first time that Dennis has shown support for Jacque and an ex of hers. Last year, when the former Citizen T.V anchor was in throes of her court case due to her presumed involvement in the murder of Monica Kimani, Dennis was there showing support to both her and her then-fiance Jowie Irungu.

Happy Birthday my friend-Itumbi says as he attends birthday with bestie Maribe

Jacque Maribe and Dennis Itumbi are the poster-children for great platonic relationships (which I don’t believe is truly possible). Last year, Itumbi proved his worth as Maribe’s ‘bestest friend ever!!!!’ when he studiously stood by her last year when she became a murder suspect.

And Maribe returned the favour this year when she supported Itumbi during his recent court dates over the fake Ruto assassination letter that made the rounds.

This past weekend the two attended an invite-only birthday party of one of their friends at a popular joint where a few photos trickled online. Itumbi, as usual, penned down a sweet poem for his friend which read:

Friendship is Martin Gitau

Happy Birthday my friend.

Our story from the days of hustle in Mukuru Slums to Mbotela and our little victories along the way is one written in both our hearts and soul.

We have had our challenges, but we have stood for each other when we had nothing and when we have something to share.

Your family and mine have become friends because we are.

During our birthdays we celebrate our friendship.

Daamn, the journey of life, through its blessings and challenges, poetry and lyrics and through its demands has been easier because you have been right there.

Our trophy and medal moments, our cheer and sad moments – are the paragraphs of our great story of friendship.

As you celebrate your birthday, I wish you a full cup of life. I will be there with you, like you have been here with me.

I wish you a great year buddy!

Clearly, Itumbi’s love language is expressed using poetry. This shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone who witnessed the poems he wrote for Jacque during her stay in remand last year.

The odd thing is that while Dennis has written numerous poems about Jacque, the reverse hasn’t happened even once! Great friendship this!

Dennis Itumbi defiant as he is released on Sh100,000 bail (photos)

Dennis Itumbi appeared in court today and was set free on a Sh100,000 cash bail despite the prosecution asking the court to detain the suspect for nine more days.

As a condition for his release, Magistrate Zainab Abdul has asked that his passport be deposited in the court.

While delivering the ruling, the high court judge gave Itumbi four conditions he has to observe while free. They are;

-The blogger was ordered to report to Muthaiga Police Station every two days.

-The judge also made it clear that the suspect could receive his power bank on today but his mobile phone would remain in custody for 14 days.

-He was also asked not to talk about the case on social or mainstream media.

-The matter is set for hearing on July 22.

One of the most interesting tidbits about his court appearance was the book he decided to showcase. It is called ‘When Breath Becomes Air’, which is a non-fiction autobiographical book written by Paul Kalanithi.

It is a memoir about his life and illness, battling stage IV metastatic lung cancer. It was posthumously published by Random House on January 12, 2016.

Loyal friend Jacque Maribe visits Dennis Itumbi at Muthaiga police station (photos)

Jacque Maribe and Dennis Itumbi are truly the greatest of platonic friends. Yesterday, Jacque visited Dennis who was arrested by Flying Squad officers in Nairobi.

Maribe visited the digital strategist who was being held at Muthaiga Police Station and the two could be seen in high spirits from the photos that we have seen.

Itumbi was reportedly taken into custody in a probe over a fake letter on an alleged plot to assassinate Deputy President William Ruto. Itumbi spent the night in the cells awaiting arraignment in court on today.

Itumbi’s lawyer Moses Chelanga stated that the detectives had not told them the reason for Itumbi’s arrest. He said;

From the questions, he was being asked during the interrogation, we suspect it’s the La Mada letter.

The DCI wants to hold Itumbi for 14 days as they investigate a WhatsApp group that might have Tangatanga members.

Itumbi and Jacque have a friendship that is the stuff of legend, especially in this day and age. This was reinforced late last year after the murder of businesswoman Monica Kimani.

Jacque was arrested as a prime suspect in the murder. After that, she was held in remand at Langata Women’s Prison but Dennis was always a constant presence for her. He was so supportive that many wondered whether the two were more than just friends?

Itumbi, Jacque and Jowie

He would always show up in court and when he wasn’t doing so he was writing poems and odes about her on social media. Just last month Itumbi pranked his followers by inviting them to Jacque’s ‘babe’ shower which many took to mean that the journalist was expectant.

He even told Mpasho.co.ke in an interview that she was 16 months pregnant! Clearly, the two are such great friends that such banter is allowed.

Stylish Jowie Irungu and Dennis Itumbi appear in court wearing bow-ties!(Photos)

Jowie Irungu appeared before Justice James Wakiaga today. Jowie, who is the prime suspect in the murder of Monica Kimani that took place in September last year, looked dapper in a black suit and a bow-tie.

His friend Dennis Itumbi also appeared in court to support him. Mr. Itumbi was also had on a black bow-tie and a red half-court.

The judge, Justice James Wakiaga was not to be left out as he also looked good wearing a pin-striped suit.

Check out more pictures from the hearing below taken by Ezekiel Aminga;

The bow tie first entered the scene as a new style of necktie at the beginning of the 19th century; a modification of its predecessor, the cravat. By the mid-1880s, the bow tie had become a staple in the fashion conscious man’s wardrobe.

Since its introduction and mass acceptance into men’s dress, the bow tie has experienced a great many changes in form and function and has transcended its purely formal and traditional stereotype.

From street style to the runway, to celebrity fashion, the bow tie has been reappropriated into a variety of different looks, breaking it free from the mould it once held as a purely formal accessory.

 

She is ’16 months pregnant’ – Dennis Itumbi says about Jaque Maribe

Dennis Itumbi and Jacque Maribe have a unique relationship. They are the rare combination of a friendship between a man and a woman where no romance is involved but that they still care deeply for each other.

This week an image did the rounds of Jacque Maribe looking like she was heavily pregnant. People drew conclusions from the unclear photos of Jacque in court that showed her wearing a frumpy coat.

The angle in which the photo was taken does not flatter her and makes her look like she has a baby bump and speculation ensued.

Mpasho.co.ke called ‘best friend’ Dennis Itumbi whether Jacque was pregnant? He replied by saying;

She is 16 months pregnant.

He added;

Kwisha hiyo maneno, she is 16 months pregnant. The only response I’m giving is that she is 16 months pregnant. Wewe fanya hiyo maneno ya interpretation.

Hours later, Dennis who loves the attention that controversy births, posted an invite for a “babe shower” on his Twitter page. He uses a photo of Jacque’s first pregnancy photo shoot which she posted on May 10, 2017.

His post read;

Jacque’s babe shower. BYOB, if you know you know. Saturday 22nd June 2019 6.00pm till late.

Jacque attended Sam Gituku’s wedding and from the photos, she did not look pregnant at all. This is not the first time that people have speculated about celebs being pregnant.

Kate Actress has famously complained about the numerous times that many have asked her whether she was pregnant. All because she gained a little extra weight.

Is Dennis Itumbi proving to be a good ‘son’ to the Maribe’s?

Jacque Maribe made her first public statement a few days ago after she went to court to seek access to her house, her phone and car. Basically, her life before all the drama.

The first time that Jacque Maribe was seen in public was a few weekends back when she landed in a chopper at MP Naisula Lesuuda’s wedding in Samburu.

But in a recent application filed in the court, Jacque is far from coy, she has called for the state prosecutor Catherine Mwaniki to be disqualified from prosecuting her murder case.

One thing we have to acknowledge is the ‘friend’ Dennis Itumbi is to Jacque Maribe and her family. He has been there for her from the first day the case kicked off.
Jacque appeared in court and Dennis Itumbi was there to support her and he sat in between Jacque and her father which made the internet make so much noise.

Dennis posted the picture on social media and caught the attention of many people on social media.

With the #Maribes in court yesterday. May Justice like a mighty stream flow and favor all. ( Photo Credits to the photographer)

The day he appeared in court he saw the stress Jowie is going through and supported the decision of the court to grant Jowie medical attention at Kenyatta National Hospital and if not the court will grant him the privilege of choosing a hospital he prefers.

Court:

Surely, we cannot hold a man in need of medication. What if he dies in our hands? Is it possible to allow the family to produce a car and prisons provide guard. I order that the accused be admitted at KNH today, whether Gvt owes KNH money or not. No fee should be demanded from the accused. If he is not admitted today, the court will allow him to seek medical treatment at a hospital of his choice. It is so ordered

 

Every woman has an Itumbi – Classic 105 fan Captain Kale advices men

The country is awash with tales of Dennis Itumbi and Jacque Maribe’s perceived close relationship, from the time she was in remand and he was writing cute messages to her release date.

This formed the Classic 105 morning conversation with Maina and Kingangi.

The conversation was about ladies who keep their exes close. As the other partner, how does it make you feel knowing that your partner is still close to their ex?

Captain Kale, one of Classic 105’s biggest fans responded saying;

@ItsMainaKageni @Classic105Kenya Maina all of us men are an “Itumbi” to a woman in one way or another. And we don’t complain because we’ll smash them after helping them. Kwanza ya Ex ni tamuuu, ni kama kukula retirement benefits #MainaAndKingangi

Wakanai another fan dag in with these comments;
@Classic105Kenya @ItsMainaKageni women are evil 😈 especially where love matters are concerned they ll sail back to their Ex without even thinking why they left, Women go with the better current option only trust yua biological mum the rest are suspects #MainaAndKingangi

According to some callers, exes are the reason of misunderstandings in marriages these days.

Another caller said “Maina your Ex is there to comfort you. I’m married and very close to my Ex. Him and my husband know each other.”

Girls, do you have an Itumbi in your life that you can bounce back to when things are thick?

Dennis Itumbi welcomes pal Jacque Maribe with a ‘home sweet home’ message

Dennis Itumbi, Jacque Maribe’s best friend is happy.

The Citizen TV’s presenter walked out of the prison gates at 6:55 pm after she was released at 6:38 pm. Itumbi has stood with Maribe through thick and thin and this can be evident from his social media posts.

Well, after Maribe left prison, Itumbi welcomed her back home with a sweet message, which read:

JACQUE MARIBE, HAS JUST DRIVEN OUT OF THE GATES OF LANGATA WOMENS PRISON.

HOME, SWEET HOME. THANKS FOR MAOMBI.

His followers flooded the comment section and below are some of the hilarious reactions:

Dolly Nimmo: Hii ndio ile siku the state’s commendation is needed, rarua tutashona😂😂😂

Gasheri Jasper Itumbi as i told you, propose tonight and marry her this coming Saturday

Kamarei: Retire your Dryspell tonight brother. Motivation to most of us. Situations like such are never permanent

Jowdyjw: Itumbi has been very loyal to Maribe during those tough times. When she is finally released, nothing should come between them. Not even a condom. It should be eaten the way it’s served ama namna gani.

Onyango Ochieng Jr: Dennis Itumbi congratulations. Now, we say in Luo “When the LEFT hand washes the right hand; the RIGHT hand washes the LEFT hand. Careful bro, don’t break her waist…

Betty Maina: And thereafter they lived happily

Phoebe Njoki Dennis Itumbi I will tell you again.. you owe no one an explanation or an apology..

Lucy Waciek How do you live? Dennis Itumbi…. I want your peace of mind… With all this trolling and disrespect from the keyboard warriors.. How?… Weh mimi ningekuwa nimetoa tint na nikachange identity.

Mukurima  Muriuki Godspeed Dennis. You are a good man. Embrace the critics, they will help you not become a demi-god. Above all, I hope this experience will make you explore ways of helping thousands of innocent Kenyans languishing in jails, tethered to their fate by the rope of corruption. Not many people have an Itumbi. Not many people can afford legal fees. Maybe this is the the wake up call we all need so we can start truly treating each other fairly.

Nic Ogange Time to get rewards for your lousy poems.

Damah Sherah Dennis Itumbi you’re a gentleman,a true boyfriend every woman wuld wish/love to have.Its rareto have such a great soul in this universe.May our almighty God reward you more for standing with our sis Jacque..

Jim Bonnie You can now “cum” back after a good job

Seith Okeyo This is the only chance bro. Take her on a cliff. Propose, get down on a knee like a gentleman. Take her left hand. Kiss it. Get the damn ring out. Propose. If she mentions Jowi, push her down the cliff. The gods will understand. 

Nimù Yreemù Any woman in this world would wish for a man like Dennis….
Every man has a lesson to learn from Dennis. Dennis Itumbi you are a mover and shaker!!!..you have clearly taught our men to love truly and I bet you are the desire of every living, honest woman wanting an honest living man…….deep down, despite all comments we admire how tenacious and incharge you can be.

Kogi Wa Kariuki Go thee and enjoy the fruits of your labour

Hon Muthumbi Which home?  I thought her house is now a scene of crime?

Dennis Shikoli Did she drive from prison with your car? we know the Allion is in police custody as an exhibit.
Jacquie Migide I love this! True friendship!

M’mweti Jacob Amos Now you are going to be relieved back pain soon and very soon

Win Becky Freedom at last. Dennis Itumbi I have never met you in person but I was fighting for Jackie in prayers. You are a real friend to her. Am praying to hear good news from both of you..
Njogu Wa Nyagūthiī you truly love this girl, Dennis Itumbi it is not normal for a man to take any care of woman, it is only that I am not Jacki, if I were Jacki ningehama kwetu nikuje kwako na siwezi toka Ata, This is only true love I have witnessed.na Kama si true love basi kuna kitu ulihisi yenye mwanaume huhisi mpaka unaishi ukitamani mrudie kitendo

Murimi Wa Nyaguthiî Its so so silly that most of us just see what is in betwn Jacques legs..there is true friendship and that’s all what our ladies wants…nkt

Wellington Wanyama But wanaume tuambiane ukweli. Actually most of us have had this Kagal that to totally swept you off your feet. The only woman you have ever loved an entire lifetime. Few of us get to settle with this kalady as mostly they dump us for some dude.Your ego and hurt get really crushed into pieces.But we men only have one shot at love and so she will always be the one you love.
Now try and imagine that girl in a mess created by the guy she probably dumped you for.
And you have the means to get her out of the mess and probably with it also revisit the lost escapades in the love you had. A chance to relive your fantasy. And experience a feeling you had missed so much.
Which man wouldn’t act the way Dennis did?
What am saying is there’s nothing virtually special in what Itumbi has done.
And Jackie should be human enough to reward this sacrifice by granting the poor dude his dreams.
In fact I hope as I write Dennis is being given his dues.

Kenyans roast Dennis Itumbi after rant over delays in releasing Jacque Maribe

 

According to a long twitter thread written by Dennis Itumbi, Jacque Maribe was not released on Tuesday after being granted bail.

Itumbi took to his Twitter account to detail what a rough time he is having in securing Jacque’s freedom.

He wrote:

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

If you thought Kenyans were sympathetic, think again. Some KOT roasted him heavily, suggesting that the urgency to have her released could be to do with bedminton.

He continued

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…

So after concluding his rant, Kenyans joined in with hilarious comments of how they interpret his need to have her out of remand.

La Revolt…And Kenyans were here hating on you thinking that you were playing VUVUZELA at night… pole bro leo pia ni siku

frank….poor dennis.some of us thought that you were giving dicklofenac.tusamehe.continue with the struggle.ataachiliwa tu.patience pays.

How Kenyans want Dennis Itumbi and Jacque Maribe to celebrate her release

 

He first wrote a lovely message to her, hours before hearing her bail application ruling.

The message revealed his fondness for her, and aspirations among other sweet things.

And when Judge James Wakiaga announced she was released on a Sh1million bail, Itumbi was in the court room to receive the great news.

This picture of them after the announcement is going viral. Don’t they look cute?

According to court documents, Jacque is now no longer Jowie’s fiance and Kenyans on Twitter are encouraging Jacque to warm Dennis Itumbi’s bed.

Here are some naughty thoughts by KOT after the news from court:

Lucy Mwende Musyimi Woiye jowie Ana imagine vile vitu zitanyanduliwa, words of encouragement for jowie 😩😩😩

Brandy Amor Kaa rada 🤣 but men need to stop living off us women… there’s no icing for the cake in court, you must swallow the bitter pill… to all my fellow women may this be a lesson for us

Dennis Itumbi continues to show his unwavering support for Citizen TV’s Jacque Maribe

Dennis Itumbi has been very vocal about his support for Jacque Maribe even as she continues to fight to prove her innocence in the murder case she is charged in.

The State House digital director is among the few who’ve stood by the Citizen TV presenter ever since she was arrested.

‘I adopt this as my Public Prayer for my friend Jacque Maribe,

(May Justice be done, I pray. Pray with me…)

DEAR FATHER, YOU ARE JUST AND YOU ARE MERCIFUL.

YOU HAVE GIVEN AUTHORITY GOVERNMENTS TO ESTABLISH AND MAINTAIN JUSTICE IN THE AFFAIRS OF HUMAN RELATIONSHIPS.

YOUR JUSTICE IS PERFECT; OUR INTERPRETATION AND APPLICATION OF IT IS NOT.

WE RESPECT AND SUBMIT TO THE DECISIONS OF OUR GOVERNMENT AND INDEPENDENT JUDICIARY, FULLY AWARE THAT HUMAN INVESTIGATORS AND PROSECUTORS ARE NOT ALWAYS RIGHT. THEY GET IT WRONG SOMETIMES. THAT IS WHY SOME ARE SET FREE FOR HAVING NO CASE TO ANSWER.

I ASK FOR TRUTH TO PREVAIL, I DO NOT ASK FOR AN AVOIDANCE OF JUSTICE, BUT FOR TRUTH TO HAVE ITS WAY.

To the family of Monica, I pray for peace and importantly for Justice that can bring them closure.

God shield her family with love, fill their path with answers and ensure that the person(s) who killed their daughter gets the highest punishment provided by our laws,’ he wrote in part.

Utumbi went ahead to reveal that all he prays for is justice for Jacque as well Monica Kimani’s family.

For all involved, we continuously pray for justice and your firm hand of fairness. My prayer is without ambiguity, Freedom for anyone wrongly accused, tough punishment for anyone who killed and increased wisdom for the great Judge who fills his room with ease, humour and still remains firm in his directions and orders. Grant the Judge good health and special favour to lift the hammer accross the proverbial scales of justice with truth as the ultimate guide. I have no doubt that will be done.

FOR MY FRIEND JACQUE, I PRAY FOR JUSTICE, THAT SHE MAY BE SORROUNDED BY LASTING PEACE DESPITE BEARING THE BRUNT OF VOID ACCUSATION, MAINLY PROSECUTED THROUGH PUBLIC MEDIA AS OPPOSED TO REAL EVIDENCE IN COURT.

LET JUSTICE PREVAIL DEAR LORD. I PRAY THAT SHE GETS BAIL TODAY, SO THAT SHE CAN HUSTLE AGAIN AND BRING UP HER CHILD – ZAHARI, TO ACHIEVE ALL HIS DREAMS, LIKE SHE HAS ALWAYS WANTED TO.

 

May she get bail so that like she told me yesterday, she can ” try and end the pain of tens of remandees who are locked up for years because they could not afford bail amounts ranging from Shs. 3,000 to 10,000″

Dear God, you know her heart, you know she means it when she says ” she will mobilize her friends to assist those suffering because they cannot access legal aid.”

A programme that should go back to the Judiciary.

Those Jacque seeks to assist pay bail as granted by Judges, may not be all innocent of the charges they face, but they deserve a chance to argue their case, within the terms already decided by various Judges, sitting in different courts.

I PRAY THAT EVEN AS SHE HELPS – AS PER BY THE LAW ESTABLISHED, IF ANYONE NEEDS TO PAY THE COST OF A BAD CHOICE, OR INTENTIONAL VIOLATION OF THE LAW, YOU DEAR LORD, GRANT THEM THE GRACE FOR THAT AND MERCY WHERE IT APPLIES. IF THEY DESERVE THEIR FREEDOM, MAY THEIR INNOCENCE BE ESTABLISHED FAIRLY AND CONCLUSIVELY.

GOD, YOU ARE ALL KNOWING, YOU KNOW EXACTLY WHAT HAPPENED THAT DAY, YOU KNOW THAT JACQUE WAS NOT THERE – THAT IS WHY I OFFER MY SUPPLICATION AND PRAYER TO YOU, BECAUSE YOU KNOW THE TRUTH, WE ARE JUST MORTALS.

Help investigators to get every piece of truth so that the light of fairness and the fullness and depth of Justice may shine on Jacque.

We pray for the prosecutor to be filled with wisdom and commitment to truth as shown by the evidence – even as she does the Job that she must do on behalf of the People of Kenya and the Republic.

May the effort, research, arguments and strategies of defence lawyers led by Katwa Kigen, Wahome Thuku and all others reach your presence and succeed within the interest of Justice.

May Justice be the answer to my prayer.

Lord graciously hear me,

I pray and believe….

Below are some of the comments;

Rebecca Nangekhe Who would ever know that the man they are in love with is a murderer and then willingly stay? This must have shaken her to the core. No one stays with a killer knowingly..

Shiru Githui She could be just a victim, she will overcome, At least her Dad came to support her through this

Mike Ksy One man destroys two women lives.

Carol Ngatia I really feel for Jackie..It’s a shame some women are so quick to pin her down & throw shade. May the truth prevail. And hats off to the dad! It’s exactly what my father would do in a time as this. Bless him!

Nyambura Gitonga I hope Jackie gives her truth and doesn’t try covering up her f*** boy. In the mean time I’m just praying for justice for Monica and her family. Murderers deserve nothing but the hang man’s noose / Life in prison

Laura Lizz Bettie Mutavi I wish her well…May justice prevail….but again I feel her…journalists really? How could you have her on front page and yet she’s not a suspect….her mistake was to date a suspect?? Then head it with Jaque Maribe fiance…doesn’t he have a name’??

Abby Zahra Renee Weh..God give her the strength to pull through it all!!😞😞
those posting nasty remarks and memes, to just keep in mind a person is only answerable for their own behaviour! it is unfortunate that the person she chose to share her life with turned out to be involved in a murder..face
