“My bosses did not want me to interview President Uhuru” Jacque Maribe narrates

Jacque Maribe made headlines when she interviewed President Uhuru Kenyatta after he won the 2013 general election.

The former Citizen TV senior political reporter in an interview with True Love’s Caroline Mandi, said that the president called her to interview him but all didn’t go well with her bosses.

“I was expecting and thinking immediately after we got from campaigns you get some time off and you’re like I’ve worked too hard who am I working for? let me get a baby,” she said.

Jacque added that she was new in the media industry and her bosses did not support her ambition to cover politics.

“It was my last assignment before I proceeded on my maternity leave when I got a call and I’m told “hi, haven’t been seeing you in a while so I hear good things are coming then come interview before you go”‘.

I got angry and I was like why, is it because I’m a woman is it because I’m heavy and so you think I’m not up to the task…why?’ It brought a bit of tension because later I got back to the president and tell him, unfortunately, I’m not the one who’s going to do it and then he said “there’s no interview,” she said.
“It was that bad and what that did for me was getting the maiden interview and so heavy at that point and saying that I can’t do it someone else has to do it and in fact it’s a man who has to do it and him saying “no, if you’re not the one doing it then there’s going to be no interview.’

“I finally opened up and got to a realisation that wait there are people who recognises us now as strong abled women in a world full of sharks, a pack of wolves which is called politics…you do it. why does it have to be somebody else and especially a man?
Long story cut short, they both went for the interview and little did she know that was going to be her breakthrough.

“I did my part of the interview and my colleague did his and we moved on from there and I kept now doing all the subsequent interviews after that.”

Jacque has since left the mainstream media and is currently running her online political show ‘The Hot Seat’.

2018 was a year of extreme highs and lows for me – Jacque Maribe

Former TV journalist Jacque Maribe knows all too well the commonly used phrase, “Her world suddenly came tumbling down!”

Jacque had a 2018 that ended with her spending time in remand prison after she became a suspect in the murder of businesswoman Monica Kimani.


Miss Maribe who was one of the premier female political journalists at the time went from hero to zero in the span of a week.

That period in her life has been shrouded in mystery as Jacque has been silent about the salient details of that dark time.

Eric Omondi reminisces about meeting and going on first date with Jacque Maribe

But it seems that she is ready to start speaking and did so on her new YouTube show, The Hot Seat. Miss Maribe revealed that 2018 could only compare to the experience of someone driving at a high speed and suddenly making an emergency break.

The interesting thing is that 2018 had also been the year that she had experienced one of the highest points in her life as she got engaged to Jowie Irungu.

But that joy was cut short after she and Jowie were named as the prime suspects in the death of Monica Kimani that took place a few months later, a topic she said she couldn’t go into as it is still in court.

Jowie Irungu and Jacque Maribe in court

The experience was so bad for her that she had to quit her job as a journalist and take time off.

“Getting into 2018 was a very interesting year for me being one of the voices that could actually be heard and taken seriously in the political sphere and leadership. Again being a female senior political reporter, it was an interesting journey having risen like that and all of a sudden you feel like everything is falling into place and making so much sense until one day you have no idea what the world just decides to do. Literally a standstill. Have you ever felt like your world just stopped? And you stop breathing, stop understanding what is going on around you and I know you know what I’m talking about that happened in 2018 that basically just brought my journey as a journalist to a halt so unexpectedly. It’s something I cannot go into details about because legally I’m not allowed to do that, but I hope it’s a conversation that we can be able to have in the future, what I have learnt from it so far, what as a woman it has meant for me, the changes it has brought. But I can say life can just deal you blows and it becomes extremely difficult to understand what has just happened,” added Jacque Maribe.

Farming to Mjengo: The jobs Jowie should do to get over his love for Jacque Maribe

A few days ago, Jacque Maribe indirectly hinted that she is done with waiting for her prince charming Joseph Irugu alias Jowie to get off prison.

A fan of hers asked her if she is still engaged to Jowie and if the ring she has on is his.

Jacque responded saying,

‘I am still wearing it.


‘I started experiencing pain and blood spots’ Video vixen on Weezdom infecting her with an STI

Well now that there is no hope of bail, here are things that Jowie can engage in while in prison to get over his lost love, Maribe.

1. Farming

Shocking as it might be, farming is good business. Jowie can take advantage and expand his knowledge by joining Kamiti’s farming club.

He might need the skills once out of jail after all kazi ni kazi.

2. Carpentry

Since no guns are allowed in prison, Jowie can learn to use his hands.

Who knows maybe by the time he gets out Maribe might want a man who loves creating cool stuff with wood.

3. Preaching or singing in the club

For those who might not know, Kamiti prison has preachers and singers.

Jowie might try joining the clubs above who knows they might earn him some good points.

He might actually be released for good behaviour (Maybe, what do I know? All that knowledge I have gathered from watching too many thrillers and crime movies).

4. Cook

According to Omar Ismael, 64, a former Manyani inmate. The coveted role of a cook comes with a lot of requirements.

“You must possess an American height ideal for twisting those long mwiko za ugali'(cooking sticks) inside huge pots.

Muscles are a must as you will be cooking ugali for more than 300 people two times a day,” Ismael says.

He added that.

‘Being of good morals and behaviour is also another qualification as you might, in a moment of inspired lunacy, poison all askari jela (wardens) and bully inmates,”

5. Soap making

The soap might be used in or outside the prison. It is sold and the funds used for the prison’s upkeep.

6. Mat-making

This skill is important in crafting products that can be sold.

7. Tailoring

This may include making clothes and other things to be used in or outside the prison.

8. Metal work

This includes making metallic materials whether for prison use or to resell.

9. Mason

In layman’s language, this is kua mtu wa mkono in a building site (mjengo).

Every other day, buildings come up and Jowie might as well do some of this work.

Since Kenyan prisons have no gym, this is the only sure way of keeping his muscles ripped.

Exposed: Here is why we think Jacque Maribe might be preparing to join Murang’a politics

TV journalist Jacque Maribe appears to be positioning herself to dive into politics, if the latest developments are anything to go by.

The women who attended the party are said to have assured her of their support if she decides to go for it.

Maribe’s interest into politics, at a time she is going through one of her most difficult moments in her life, doesn’t come as a surprise.

The TV girl has quite a good number of high ranking politicians as close friends who might have influenced her interest in politics.

‘I panicked and ran back into my bedroom’ Jacque Maribe narrates how Jowie came home soaked in blood

Jacque Maribe and fiancé Joseph Irungu/ Jowie are still in remand over the murder of Monicah Kimani.

We can now reveal part of her confession contained in an affidavit  of what transpired

“I love you and I am sorry”

These were the words Joseph Irungu aka Jowie repeatedly told Jacque Maribe after visiting her home on September 19. In her statement to the DCI, seen by the Star, Maribe said her fiancé came back home on the said day crying and apologized for what she did not know.

They denied the charge before Justice Jessie Lessit on Monday and are expected in court on Wednesday for further directions on their case.

Maribe said

 “I had gone to bed by the time he returned. He came to my room crying and telling me he was sorry.”

I told him my child was sleeping and that he should stop making noise lest he woke the child from sleep. He kept crying that ‘Jacque I am sorry’, but I ignored him.”

After some minutes, Maribe stated that Jowie walked to a closet in her house after which she heard a gunshot.

“I jumped out of bed and went to the closet, and found him lying on the floor. Blood was oozing from his upper left chest area,” she said.

She added that Jowie kept on apologizing to her sending her into a panic mode.Addig that

“He was repeatedly saying ‘I love you. I am sorry.’ I panicked and ran back into my bedroom for my phone.”

Maribe said by the time she came back, Jowie was gone.

“I left the house and ran outside towards Brian Kassaine’s house where I found him lying down.”

Brian is Maribe’s neighbour. He was released on a free bond but ordered to report to the DCI every Thursday.

“Brian’s wife Cate also ran outside to where Joseph was lying. He was still bleeding from the chest,” Jacque told the detectives.

On Monday, Jowie, burst into tears after his mother hugged him in court before his murder charge was read out.

Jowie has been in custody for a month. He and his fiance Maribe were charged with killing Monica Kimani.

Another man who had been detained in connection with the killing was released.

Brian Kassaine is now a prosecution witness. He is said to have helped detectives to piece together the events of the night the crime was committed.

Jacque Maribe finally resumes her job at Citizen TV

Jacque Maribe  has finally resumed work at Citizen, but you will not see her on the screens.

This comes weeks after she was released on a 2 million cash bail.

A source who sought anonymity revealed that she resumed duty yesterday and will be a news editor, who will compile and arrange stories that will run on air.

I am told she was back at work yesterday and will essentially hold her old responsibilities minus going on air.
So in essence she is a news Editor who will compile and arrange stories that will run on air,” our source disclosed.

Kenyans you did not know were related to President Uhuru Kenyatta

kackie maribe

Jacque not being on air, is one of the conditions given when she was released on bail by Justice James Wakiaga. She is also not to conduct interviews on matters related to the case.

Last month, she was allowed to access her house to pick the things she needs, but her car and iPhone are still being held as investigations are ongoing.

She had been arrested with her fiancé Jowie in connection to the murder of Monicah Kimani at her home in Kilimani.

Jowie is still in remand in Kamiti Prison.

After being released from prison, this is what Jacque Maribe wants to do

Jacque Maribe is back and she is not messing around. She is ready to defend her innocence.

She was incarcerated for close to a month after the police linked her to the murder of Monicah Mwangi.

In a fresh application to the court, Jacque wants Director of Public Prosecution (DPP) Noordin Haji and Director of Criminal Investigations George Kinoti to avail her house and all the documents the prosecution intends to use in her trial over the murder of businesswoman Monica Kimani.


Through her lawyer Katwa Kigen, Jacque has accused Haji of acting in contempt of court by refusing to allow her to have her house as well as witness statements relating to her trial.

“It is an absolute violation that despite explicit court orders, provision of law and undertakings by the prosecution, that materials have not been supplied to Ms Maribe on timelines provided and that the default has persisted for long,” said her lawyer Kigen.

Jacque has written three letters to the DPP and her lawyer has had several telephone conversations and exchanged messages with State lawyer Catherine Mwaniki, who is representing Mr Haji in the case.

She has also made multiple visits to their offices.

The journalist says none of her letters have been responded to, so there is no commitment on the part of the prosecution to hand her the rented house in Lang’ata Royal Park estate in Nairobi.

She also wants her Toyota Allion car and her black iPhone.

When she was freed on bond on October 30 by High Court judge James Wakiaga, she was granted access to the house as well as the disputed case documents.

She argues, however, that she has not been given a good reason for the delay or the breach of the court order, a circumstance that she says amounts to automatic infringement of her rights.

The journalist notes that all her clothes and accessories, including an automated teller machine card, medical cards, books and medication for her child, remain locked up in the house.

She says she has been forced to beg for clothes, accommodation, transportation and a phone.

Jacque also notes that her child has been subjected to the criminal justice process and inconvenience.

She dismisses claims that she would be unavailable for the trial, saying she willingly surrendered her house, car and phone to police before any search warrant was availed.

“Unless the court intervenes, the DPP and the DCI will continue using the advantages of their public, statutory and constitutional advantages to despise and violate Ms Maribe,” Mr Kigen said.

As a result, she has asked the court to disqualify the lead prosecutor Catherine Mwaniki from the case if found in contempt.

She argues that the prosecution might have delayed in supply of document “because the materials show no culpable evidence against the applicant, yet they have maintained to the public the posture of being sterling having resolved the crime(s) at hand and having established culpable parties on an objective measure.”

“The materials will show the unjust malice against the Applicant in being charged for public spectacle than for the merits and any culpability in the case.”

Jacque wants Ms Mwaniki, the alleged contemnors, punished or disqualified from being the lead prosecutor in her trial.

“Punishment(s) be meted out to the contemnors for their imprisonment for a period of up to six months and or a fine of Sh200,000 or otherwise as the court may deem fit, just and fair for the integrity of the court proceeding…” reads a section of her application.

Meanwhile, a court has allowed Citizen TV journalist Jacque Maribe to access her house in Lang’ata.

Jacque’s application to have the DPP charged with contempt of court will be heard on February 28, 2019.

Irungu had initially said Wakiaga shouldn’t hear his case because he has shown open bias and already assumed him guilty before evidence is tendered.

Jowie was always know for being a buff guy who took great care of his looks. But appearing in court today, Jowie’s left arm is still in a sling and his eyes look sunken.
