‘Worth making a comeback for’ Jacque Maribe makes mysterious return to social media

Eliud Kipchoge’s sub two hour history making moment has had a big impact on former Citizen Tv’s Jacque Maribe.

She has for the first time returned to social media and it all has to do with Eliud Kipchoge. Maribe has been off social media for months now.

Moments after breaking the barrier in the Ineos 159 challenge, Jacque wrote

thank you, for sharing this moment with us. For allowing us to witness history. For showing us that we can teach our children that no human is limited. We are proud. I am proud. Kenya is proud. Thank you. 
You are worth making a comeback for.

Many of her fans noticed her quiet return and praised her for it, noting how happy they were to have her back online.

 

Maribe’s fans were excited she has made a comeback to social media, after taking a hiatus during the trial in the murder of Monica Kimani murder.

Spotted: Jacque Maribe hangs with close friend who pens poem about her

Jacque Maribe is making it a habit of popping up on different people’s social media timelines lately. The latest person to graced with her presence on his page is her close friend Citizen TV reporter Stephen Letoo. Don’t forget a Jaque Maribe sighting has to be written about! It is like hunting for an elusive black leopard!!!

The two were hanging out at popular joint called Roadhouse in the Kilimani area. The now camera-weary former Citizen T.V anchor was a prized guest with Letoo sharing a sweet message about her. He wrote;

Each friend represents a world in us, a world possibly not born until they arrive, and it is only by this meeting that a new world is born.

Maribe has been spotted at social joints on several occasions.  For those of you who don’t know, Letoo is among the many friends who stood by Jacque when she was arrested in connection with the murder of Monica Kimani in September last year.

Jacque Maribe earns plum new deal after quitting Citizen TV

Jacque Maribe has been away from our television screens from the month of July when she resigned from Citizen T.V.

The move was met with shock and consternation as many wondered what could have happened to occasion such a move?

She still hasn’t spoken about her decision with some rumours which I cannot state here alluding to something…I told you I cannot say what I have heard!

So what has she been doing lately?

Apart from appearing here and there on her pals’ social media pages, the former T.V anchor has been riding low nary making a stir online.

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

But that was until this week when we learnt that she had earned a new gig.

She has now officially resurfaced and she is going to be leveraging her talent to earn some extra coin and that is what I like seeing: people hustling and making money.

Jacque hosted a karaoke event at 1824 on 1st October:

The radio queen’s life took a turn for the worse late last year when she was implicated in the murder of Monica Kimani along with her then-fiance Jowie Irungu.

She is still out on bail as her case is yet to be determined by a court of law.

All I will say is that her finding something to do while away from the glare of the camera is good to see. As they say, an idle mind is the devil’s workshop.

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!

These photos shed light on how Jowie is doing in prison

 

Joseph Irungu aka Jowie is currently cooling his heels at Kamiti Maximum Prison.

He has been behind bars since September last year. Jowie is the main suspect in the murder of businesswoman Monica Kimani.

Jowie seems to have adapted well to his new environment at Kamiti prison and he was captured on camera singing and dancing at the institution during the filming of Up Close with Betty Kyallo. Reverend Lucy Natasha often referred to as Oracle of God was the guest on Friday’s show.

Kamiti Maximum Prison

Betty Kyallo, Rev Lucy Natasha and her team [Natasha hand of compassion] were visiting Kamiti for a charity event.

Speaking to Betty, the woman of God christened the s3xiest pastor in Kenya said,

Natasha hand of compassion is something I’ve been doing over time and it’s because I have a strong passion for just giving hope for people who feel rejected. Like where we’re going to Kamiti

These [prisoners] are the people that are on life sentence. Most of them that get out is just by presidential pardon. I always tell them to look at Kamiti not as a prison but as a college.

 

Natasha and her team spent two hours feeding the prisoners with the word of God and during praise and worship session, Jowie was captured on camera. Jowie looked happy. he was smiling as he talked to a fellow inmate. He was clapping and singing along to a song which goes like;

I have a father who’ll never ever fail me, Jesus is my father who’ll never ever fail me, rock of ages…

He was dressed in a prison uniform, which is grey in color. Below are the photos

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?

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.

Video of Eric Omondi and Jacque Maribe ‘flirting’ gets Kenyans excited

Eric Omondi and Jacque Maribe have been lovers in the past. The two now enjoy a cordial relationship, unlike most couples that have broken up in the past.

A video has been doing the rounds of the two have a jolly old time together, in what seems to be a beauty parlour. The comedian films Jacque and himself as they laugh and joke about.

Eric talks about watching ‘ball yangu’, most likely talking about watching football on his mobile phone. To which Jacque starts laughing hilariously. The term ball might be seen as a double entendre by the comedian, as in Kenyan lingo it can describe a pregnant woman.

Thing is, he is using that same phone to take the video of himself and the Citizen T.V presenter. So how is he able to watch the so-called football?

After laughing, Jacque playfully tells him to leave her alone but Eric is having none of that and doubles down as he strokes the top of her shoulder as the video fades to black. The video is below;

There was a rumour in the past that Jacque’s only son, Zahari, had been fathered by Eric but he strenuously denied those allegations late last year.

Eric himself has not had the best of luck this year as love goes as he and his long-term girlfriend Chantal split up a couple of months back. Could Eric and Jacque be re-igniting the passion that they once had for each other? Only they know.

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.

New Jacque Maribe! TV star resurfaces after long online hiatus

Jacque Maribe is back. This time she is looking peng.

It has been a pretty minute since we spotted her out and about.

The last time we heard about any of her future plans when was when her pal, Dennis Itumbi penned a poem for her.

It read, in part:

“Here my hand,

Use it as your extra strength,

Use it to write your new chapter,

Use it to bounce back,

Here my hand,

Have enough of it for support and strength,

Then let it go,

There is a reason storms are named after women,

You are a storm, yes you are.”

Nyce Wanjeri’s hubby speaks out on separation with former Auntie Boss actress

And, indeed she is back, stronger than ever.

In a recent photo Jacque is photographed looking all kinds of luscious.

Her workmate at  Citizen TV, Hassan Mugambi captioned it:

“Do not finish when you are tired, finish when you are done. @kadzoh_gungah @jacquemaribe @dan_lijodi @hakeem_the_fit join the Family @fitfamke.”

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

Jacque Maribe’s friends express excitement over release: ‘The ghosts of bad luck are off your back’

Jacque Maribe’s family and friends are celebrating after she was released on 1 million shillings cash bail.

The mother of one and fiancé Jowie have been in remand since September 2018 after they were arrested.

Granting bail to Maribe, the judge considered several factors, key among them the need for her to go home and care for her four-year-old son given that should she be found guilty, she will be facing the death sentence. Secondly, the judge noted that although she was arrested 10 days after the murder of Monica Kimani, the journalist did not in any way try to interfere with evidence or witnesses.

 

However, he directed that she stops anchoring the news on Citizen TV pending the conclusion of her case. Other bail terms include:

Jacque Maribe must not make contact with any of the prosecution witnesses.

She shall not have a TV discussion relating to Monica Kimani’s death

Barred from going back to her house in Lang’ata 

Well, friends of Jacque Maribe have come out to celebrate her release and below are some of their messages.

Senior Citizen TV political reporter Steve Letoo wrote;

@JACQUEMARIBE FINALLY THE GHOSTS OF BAD LUCK ARE OFF YOUR BACK – GLORY BE TO GOD. THIS IS YOUR GOLDEN MOMENT TO REFLECT WHAT YOU HAVE GONE THROUGH, THE AGONY AND DEEP PAIN, AWAY FROM YOUR SON ZAHARI WHO NO ONE CAN EXPLAIN TO HIM WHY YOU HAVE BEEN AWAY.. FOR US TODAY YOU HAVE CONQUERED THE EVIL LIKE DAVID AND THE GOLIATH. WE CONTINUE TO KEEP YOU IN PRAYERS AND HOPE THAT THE GOD YOU WORSHIP EVERY SINGLE DAY WILL NOT LET YOU DOWN.

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….

AMEN!.’

Jacque and Jowie will appear before the court today for a bail hearing.

 

Exposed! Here is why Jacque Maribe’s fiancé Jowie stole ‘mtu wa mjengo’s ID

New details have emerged on where Jacque Maribe’s fiancé Joseph Irungu alias Jowie might have ‘stolen’ an ID to go commit the murder of Monicah Kimani.

When he was arrested on the 25th September 2018, police discovered that he had registered himself as Dominic with the security personnel at the gate of where Monicah Kimani lived in Kilimani.

Here are all the plans slain Kilimani woman Monicah Nyawira had for her birthday before her gruesome murder

The national Identity Card murder suspect Jowie Irungu used to gain access to Monica Kimani’s apartment had been reported missing two days earlier.

The ID card belongs to Dominic Bisela, a casual worker at a construction site within Royal Park apartments where Jowie and his television journalist girlfriend, Jacque Maribe, live in Lang’ata estate, Nairobi.

The ID card went missing on September 17, two days before Monica was found with her throat slit at her Lamuria Gardens pad off Dennis Pritt Road, Nairobi.

Police are still holding Jowie as the prime suspect in the murder and Maribe as an “accessory to the murder” of Monica Kimani.

Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) boss George Kinoti told The Nairobian that Bisela’s ID card was reported missing from the sentry box where other identification cards were left by construction workers.

Kinoti explained that Bisela,

“did not find his ID in the evening after completing duty at the construction site. He informed the guard to be on the lookout for the card just in case it had been misplaced from the rest of the IDs.”

Here are reasons why Jowie opted to ‘steal’ the mans identity card

1. The stolen ID would be easy to dispose and it would be hard to track him down.

2. Revenge Motive

In some cases, the motivation for identity theft is more personal than financial. Jilted lovers, former friends, bickering business partners and even family members can use identity theft to shatter the lives of those they feel have wronged them

3. Concealment of Other Crimes

Some identity thieves use their stolen information as a tool to commit even bigger crimes. They may cover their tracks by implicating the true owner of the stolen identity in their crimes.

Jennings Orlando said he did not accompany Irungu, aka Jowie, to the Kilimani house the night before her body was discovered. Police are contemplating using him as a state witness.

Irungu and TV journalist Jacque Maribe have been charged with the murder. They have denied any wrongdoing.

Orlando had initially denied any knowledge of the incident but changed his position at the weekend.

He told investigators how he met Jowie at a bar in Nairobi before he [Jowie] went to Monica’s house

Sources familiar with the investigations said the policeman and Irungu met in Nairobi on September 19.

Orlando told homicide detectives that Irungu had called him from his Ruiru place of work and asked that they meet him in Nairobi for a drink.

The two proceeded to a Kilimani bar where they stayed there from around 6pm until 8pm.

They were also in the company of two women who have also been questioned by the police.

At around 8pm, Jowie told Orlando that he wanted to visit a friend in Kilimani who had come from South Sudan.

The two drove in Maribe’s car. Jowie drove the vehicle and dropped Orlando at a petrol station in Kilimani and asked Orlando to wait for him. The station also had a bar.

Jowie returned at around 11pm but did not discuss anything about Monica, Orlando said.

Orlando was arrested by the police on Friday after forensic probe into Jowie’s mobile phone revealed the two were in communication before and after the murder.

He told investigators he had known Jowie for only three months and denied stepping foot in Monica’s residence.

Orlando told the police he was shocked to learn of Jowie’s arrest in connection with the murder.

Asked why he had not volunteered information to the police, Orlando said he was in shock after learning of the incident.

“From his statement, we think he should be a witness rather than an accused person,” a detective familiar with the probe told the Star.

Maribe and Jowie have been remanded, pending the hearing of their bail applications.
