Five reasons why Jacque Maribe was arrested

Published

on

TV anchor Jacque Maribe was yesterday arrested and detained at Gigiri Police Stataion in relation to the gruesome murder of Monica Nyawira Kimani last week.

With the prime suspect in being her fiancé Joseph Irungu, Maribe is likely to be charged with being an accessory to murder and illegal possession of a firearm.

With Maribe currently behind bars, here are some of the events leading up to her arrest:

Conflicting statements

On the night of September 20, Irungu had told police he had picked Maribe from a club in Kilimani and driven to their house in Royal Park estate, Langata.

Irungu told police they arrived in the estate at about 1.30am when he spotted three men standing outside and after taking Maribe into the house, he went back to the gate to check what was happening and that is when he claims to have been shot.

Maribe told police she was drunk and drove him to Nairobi West Hospital where he was attended to and sent home. The two also told police they went to Nairobi West Hospital and Lang’ata Hospital the same night seeking treatment for the gunshot wound.

Later, one of their lawyers told a court that the couple also went to Kijabe Mission Hospital.

Live bullet

Earlier in the week when detectives visited Maribe’s house, the team recovered a live bullet from under the bed, but not a pistol.

They said they had been informed that Irungu has been using at most shooting ranges in the city. Irungu, according to the police, has been claiming to be a licensed firearm holder but that is not the case.

Burned clothing

Investigators found burned clothes behind Maribe’s house which they took for forensic analysis to determine whether they are the ones Irungu wore on the day of Monica’s murder.

However, the white robe Irungu was wearing when he visited Monica is yet to be found.

Gun discovery

Detectives found a gun they believe was used by Irungu in a house neighbouring Maribe’s.

The firearm was found in the possession of one Brian Kasaine in an estate in Lang’ata and was taken for ballistic tests to determine whether it matched the bullet found under the journalist’s bed.

Maribe subsequently denied knowledge of how the live bullet ended up under her bed.

Should the ballistic tests confirm the pistol found yesterday matches the bullet, she will be charged with unlawful possession of a firearm.

If convicted, Maribe faces not less than seven years and not more than 15 years in jail.

Parliament’s most silent MPs

Published

on

Your legislator may be among MPs and Senators who have never uttered a single word at the floor of the August House despite Kenyan representatives being among the highest paid parliamentarians in the world.

According to the Annual Parliamentary Scorecard for the third Session of the 12th Parliament released yesterday, a total of 21 members did not utter a single word during the entire session.

Of the 21, 19 are from the National Assembly with two being from the Senate. Male legislators dominate the list.

MPs who have never uttered a word at the Plenary include Nakuru Town West MP Samuel Arama and his Kapseret counterpart Oscar Sudi who while being vocal in other matters outside the August House, find no words inside parliament as legislators debate serious issues concerning their constituents.

The other silent MPs include Abdi Tepo (Isiolo South), Abdi Shurie (Balambala), Ahmed Gaal (Tarbaj), Johnson Naicca (Mumias West), Amin Deddy (Laikipia East) Geofrey Kingagi (Mbeere South), James Gakuya (Embakasi North), George Aladwa (Makadara) and John Owino (Awendo).

The rest are Stanley Muthama (Lamu West), Gideon Konchella (Kilgoris), Justus Kizito (Shinyalu), Alfred Sambu (Webuye East) and James Mukwe (Kabuchai).

Rose Museo (Makueni), Beatrice Kones (Bomet East) and Amina Gedow (Mandera) were the silent women in the House.

BEST PERFORMERS

In a report released Wednesday morning by  Mzalendo Trust, a Parliamentary monitoring organisation, the best performing MPs at the National Assembly were Millie Odhiambo (Suba North), David Sankok (Nominated), Wilberforce Ojiambo (Funyula), Robert Pukose (Endebess) and Benson Makali (Kitui Central).

The leading lights at the Senate were Ledama Ole Kina (Narok), Moses Wetangula (Bungoma), Aaron Cheruiyot (Kericho), Ochilo Ayako (Migori) and Getrude Musuruve (Nominated).

Millie Odhiambo, Jacqueline Oduol (Nominated), Jennifer Shamala (Nominated), Ruweida Obo (Lamu) and Sophia Noor (Ijara) were the top-performing women in the National Assembly.

The scorecard, released annually, aims at enhancing transparency and accountability and is based on members’ contributions in Plenary as captured in the Hansard.

“Every so often, we get queries from members about the performance of their MPs. The scorecard is therefore a way of enforcing the social contract between MPs and the electorate, as they exercise delegated authority on behalf of the citizens,” Mzalendo Trust Executive Director, Caroline Gaita, said.

VIDEO: Jalang’o exposes Churchill Show’s Financial Secrets as Comedienne Zeddy spills more beans

Published

on

Felix Odiwuor, popularly known as Jalang’o exposed information on the popular Churchill Show that had been hidden from many Kenyans.

During a Candid interview with fellow comedian Zainabu Zeddy, the two laid bare their opinions about the Churchill show.

“Let me tell you something Churchill will never reveal, and comedians cannot understand. People see a packed audience and think he has made a lot of money. The tent in which the event is held doesn’t cost less that Ksh3 million,” Jalang’o explained.

Jalang’o who is a close friend of the show host advised comedians to use the platform as a gateway to better things because they could not depend on the show’s allowances to change their lives.

“Performing at private functions and clubs can earn you Ksh 50,000 but you can’t earn that money on Churchill Show because it’s not there,” Jalang’o stated before breaking down the event’s costs.

He then further went on to disclose that running the whole show cost around Ksh5 million.

Jalang’o added that for Churchill to meet the operation cost, it would require at least 5,000 people to pay Ksh 1,000 each for tickets.

“Do you know that sometimes half of the crowd would attend the show for free?” Jalang’o posed to Zeddy.

The radio presenter added that on some nights, Churchill would be lucky to make even Ksh 200,000. He explained that a lot of money would be used to hire chairs, accommodation, lights and stage equipment as well as the technical crew.

He challenged that if the host were making as much money as people thought then he wouldn’t need to work as a presenter at Classic 105 FM.

Zeddy on her part stated that Comedians were also suffering since one was only paid if their sketch was aired on TV.

“Comedians would perform for months and never air, how do you expect them to make a living yet sometimes they have incurred costs to perform,” she wondered.

“The audience during the live recording usually get to see up to 15 performances and wonder why only a few are aired,” the comedian added.
