Maribe’s former house-help reveals details of the night Jowie shot himself

The house-help to TV journalist Jacque Maribe has taken the court through the events of the night Joseph Irungu alias Jowie shot himself.

Pamela Kembo also told the court that Jowie used to take Jacque Maribe to work on regular basis and then return home, mostly to sleep.

Kembo told a Milimani Law Court that after dropping Maribe at work, Jowie would routinely return to the house and later in the evening he would pick her from work.

Kembo said before she went to work for Maribe, she was working for journalist Terryanne Chebet for over 5 years.

She noted that she stopped working at Chebet’s home after she was fired from Citizen.

“Chebet was the one who took me to work for Maribe where I was staying with her and her son alone before Jowie moved in, in June 2018,” she said.

Kembo narrated how Maribe introduced Jowie to her as being an army officer who worked in Dubai.

She also told the court that Maribe informed her that Jowie was also working at State House.

During her stay in the house, Kembo spotted a gun which she asked Maribe and was told that it belonged to Jowie.

Later on after staying in the house for sometime, Kembo said she could see how Jowie used to take Maribe at work and back in the evening using her car.

“All he did was to take Maribe to work and come back to sleep. On September 19, he took Jacque to work and came back to sleep,” Kembo told the court.
“At around 4 pm he left the house carrying a back bag. He was in grey shorts, white shirt and sneakers. He left with Jacque’s car,” she said.

“Both of them did not come back that night and I didn’t hear them when they came back.”

Kembo said on September 20, Jowie took Maribe to work as usual and came back to sleep.

“Later that evening he left again. At around 1 am that night I heard Jowie shouting out to Brian (Kasaine) for help. I left my room and found Jowie’s clothes and possession downstairs,” she narrated.

Later, Kembo saw Brian Kasaine, the neighbor and his wife come in asking for Jowie’s ID.

“Brian was saying they can’t take him to hospital without an ID. I then saw Jacque come from upstairs and followed Brian and the wife outside. Jowie was inside Maribe’s car backseat with blood oozing from him,” she said.

Kembo said Jowie was wearing a vest when the four of them left.

“I then went upstairs to check on the baby. I saw their bedroom light on and decided to go switch it off. Upon arrival, I saw a gun down there and blood on the floor,” she said.

“The blood was near their bathroom. I then went downstairs and called Chebet who I briefed about the occurrences.”
But Kembo said Chebet told her to sleep adding that she did not sleep because she was shaken.

“Jowie and Jacque came back and his hand had been bandaged. They then went upstairs to sleep,” she said.

On September 21, Maribe left for work at 3 pm and her mom also followed her with the child.

Later that evening, Brian came and asked for the car keys saying he was taking Jowie back to hospital.

Kembo said she gave him the car key and he went upstairs to pick Jowie and brought him down.

“They didn’t come back. And Jacque also didn’t come back until the next morning Saturday,” she said.
Kembo said she spent the night at Terryanne Chebet’s house adding that Jowie was brought back on Monday evening by Brian at 6 pm.

“Maribe came back at 8 pm and went to bed. Brian was also in the house. The next day policemen came to the house. They had guns but I saw them when they were leaving,” she recounted.

“They went to the master bedroom and left at 7.20 am with Jowie. I do not know where they went. Later Maribe left for work using an Uber.”

Kembo said Jowie came back at 2pm with the cops adding that she was told to take the child to Brian’s house.

“The police left at 6.30. Jowie then came and told m to go lock the house and left with the cops,” she said.

She added that Maribe’s dad called her and told her to take the child to Buru Buru.

Kembo said that when she peeped into the house, it had been turned upside down.

“I had called Terryanne and told her I’m going home but she told me to go to her house in Kilimani instead of going to Kitale. Maribe’s mother gave me Sh1,000,” she said.

She got to Chebet’s house and stayed there.

Since then, Kembo told the Court that she has never seen either Jacque or Jowie.

“I was in good terms with Jacque but not Jowie. At one point, Jowie accused me of stealing the house rent,” she said.

This made her want to quit in August 2018 but Maribe’s mother begged her to stay.

“I never heard any gun shot on that night that Jowie allegedly shot himself.”

She says she does not know how Jowie’s clothes got downstairs.

“…and I removed them from there to avoid the baby asking me why daddy’s clothes were there. According to me they were staying well together I never saw anything bad between them for the time I stayed with them.”

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!

Jacque Maribe’s father tenderly comforts distressed-looking Jowie(photos)

Jowie Irungu has been in court this week for the Monica Kimani murder case. The man who has not being spoken of in glowing terms in many news reports was humanised when Jacque Maribe’s father commiserated with the murder suspect as he was in the docks.

In a series of photos captured by The Star’s Enos Teche, Mwangi Maribe hugging Jowie at the docks. The photos are interesting considering the narrative in some sections of the media that the Maribe’s father wasn’t in favour of Jowie and his daughter’s relationship.

Meanwhile, the DNA of an unknown male was discovered on strappings collected from Monica Kimani’s apartment, the court has heard.

A report given to the court on Tuesday showed strappings taken for testing revealed the DNA of Monica and an unknown male.

“The DNA from the strapping in Monica’s house was of a mixed profile, the major contributor matching the profile generated from the blood sample labeled Monica with a random probability of match and a minor contributor is an unknown male profile,” Government analyst Joseph Kagunda Kimani said.

This is even as blood samples from khaki shorts said to belong to Jowie matched that of Monica’s blood.

Kagunda told the court there was a small blood stain on Jowie’s brown shorts taken from his house by the police to the Government Chemist for analysis.

Kagunda was testifying in the case where Jowie has been charged alongside his ex-fiancée Jacque Maribe with the murder of Monica.

The report lists 73 items that were tested during the investigations in to the murder of Monica, which happened on September 19, 2018 in her apartment at Lamuria Gardens in Kilimani.

The Government Chemist was tasked to analyse items derived from Monica’s apartment, Maribe’s residence where Jowie was living, and her car for criminal investigations.

The items were received from the Government Chemist from September 25 and October 5, 9 and 24 last year.

They include a black leather belt, black hair band, maroon pillow, pair of navy blue sandals, a pair of black sports shoes, Heineken green empty beer bottle, swabs on sterile swab stick from rear left seat of car KCA 031E among other items.

‘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.

Na Jacque Maribe!? Eric Omondi says he speaks to Chantal everyday

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.

Na Jacque Maribe!? Eric Omondi says he speaks to Chantal everyday

Eric Omondi and Jacque Maribe have been exciting Kenyans recently. Why?  Jacque confirmed that Eric was the father of Zahari her son, and they have been sharing a few images showing themselves in a state of bliss and familial love.

One would not be mistaken to assume that they were a happy nuclear family. And now comes the interesting twist for those who might have wanted the two to get together?

Chantal Graziano, Eric’s long-time fiancee’ and now ex might still be in the picture to scuttle those plans. What do I mean? The comedian was recently interviewed by Dr. Ofweneke who asked him whether he still misses the Italian national.

‘I was married’ Eric Omondi says about his relationship with ex, Chantal(exclusive)

His response shocked many with the comic saying that he didn’t. That would seem harsh for him to say especially for a woman that he dated for many years before they split.

But there was a twist, he said he didn’t miss her because he still spoke to her on a daily basis! Not only that! Eric went on to call her during the show to prove his words.

I don’t miss Chantal because I talk to Chantal. Yeah every single day. Let’s call Chantal I hope she’s on,” said Eric. The entertainer, however, refused to clarify whether the public breakup was real or just a stunt.

For a long time, the two who were the image of love but had a mutually agreed break-up earlier this year. This was despite Eric claiming last year that he would be marrying Chantal in 2019.

Sad…At least he has a son and a co-parent for company.

Don’t give up – Glowing and resplendent Jacque Maribe tells fans

Jacque Maribe has had a renaissance on her Instagram page (most likely mirroring her life) after the dramatic (some might say disastrous year) that she had in 2018.

The former Citizen TV presenter was mentioned as a prime suspect in a murder last year, spent time in a remand center and then resigned her job in rather suspicious circumstances; all in quick succession.

To say that she has been through the wringer in the past year is an understatement. But the woman seems to have gotten a new lease on life and has been posting many images of herself enjoying life.

She even made the life-changing decision to reveal that her son, Zahari had been fathered by comedian Eric Omondi. Clearly one can see that she is a more positive head-space, the same one that Lillian Muli her former colleague on Citizen TV has had this year.

Jacque’s growth is so deep that she has even started sharing motivational messages on her timeline, joining a legion of celebrities who use their platforms positively. The woman posted such a message last night that touched on themes like sin, love and redemption.

Jowie analia Kamiti! Jacque Maribe and Eric Omondi holiday with their son

Jacque Maribe has made the month of October the month where she will live her life loud and proud, and that is on her Instagram page!

The former Citizen TV presenter who hasn’t posted on her page for more than a year started off by congratulating Eliud Kipchoge on his historic feat, then from there, it was off to the races with the posts.

Her second post went viral with confirmation of the news that her son Zahari had been sired by Eric Omondi. That news was well-received by both the star’s followers and friends.

Could the two have rekindled their love or is this just a holiday of co-parents? What about Jowie, Jacque’s previous ex, who is languishing in Kamiti while life moves on? I wonder what is going on in that brain of his? I think-only thoughts of joy and peace about Eric and Maribe, of course!

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

Both Maribe and Jowie were arrested in connection with the murder of businesswoman Monica Kimani and put behind bars. But after several court hearings, Maribe was granted bail while Jowie, the main suspect in Monica’s murder, was taken to Kamiti.

Before she was even released on bail, Jacque removed her engagement ring, a clear sign that the gloves of love had fallen off. She even went ahead to delete photos from her engagement party from her Instagram page.

 

Well, the former Citizen TV political affairs journalist, who publicly revealed that Eric Omondi is the father of her son, is a happy soul.

Fans flooded her comment section and one claimed that she had seen her still wearing her engagement ring.

As zoomers association unadhani hatujaona engagement ring ya Jowie? Main husband ni nani?’ the fan wrote.

Maribe responded saying,

Am I still wearing it?

The ex-TV girl’s latest photos clearly show that she no longer wears the engagement ring, but normal rings just for fun.

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

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.

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.

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.

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;

The video elicited a few reactions from Kenyans who saw it. Some are below;

@jules_gatimu_; this no be joke oo

vickykaytattyana; 😂😂😂😂
danny.stormz; Hahahaa ati uone ball yako

nan_nyagah; Find out who was there before
kitukuyu; 😁😁😁

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.

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.

I think it is par for the cause for many female celebrities especially in this day and age of social media.
