Five reasons why Jacque Maribe was arrested



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.

INCREDIBLE VIDEO: You won’t believe what this baby is capable of



A Video of the rosy-cheeked toddler pulling herself up climbing walls zipped across the Internet this week, drawing millions of views on Facebook in just a few days.
Her parents, Rachael and Zak Farmer, are competitive climbers who always hoped she’d join in the family pastime. Ellie was climbing with her mother throughout her pregnancy and has been a fixture at their local gym in Flagstaff, Arizona, her entire life.
“She’s really been part of the climbing community since birth,” said Zak Farmer, 31. “When she was first opening her eyes, she was at the gym, seeing climbers climb.”
Ellie was climbing before she could walk and scaled her first wall around 8 months.
“I kind of imagined when I had Ellie that she was going to be this calm baby, and we’d always go hiking in the woods, and she’d watch the butterflies go by,” said Rachael Farmer, 28. “That’s really nice, and we definitely have those moments together, but she is a really active kid.”
Her father built an 8-foot climbing wall in the bedroom beside her crib. (Now, because she’s such an ace climber, it stands beside her toddler bed.) Ellie is typically at the gym with her parents about five days a week, and some of that time is dedicated just to her interests: hanging, gripping and scrambling up kid-size walls.

Eko Dydda’s troubled marriage



Kenyan gospel rapper Eko Dydda has finally been exposed by his wife, Cynthia Ayugi, for cheating on her with a friend after months of denial.

Two months ago, the rapper was reported to have kicked his wife and the mother of his two sons out of their home after she confronted him over an affair with another woman.

The rapper however denied the claims by posting a video of himself, his wife and their two sons with the caption:

“Dida ambia wasee wa rumours Psalms 23, What is bound in heaven is also bound on earth.”


He would later do an interview with Edaily where he once again dismissed the rumours.

“You know me. I cannot dare do all that which is being alleged online. My wife and children are with me and I do not know where the rumour came from,” he said.

But from his wife’s latest claims, it is clear that their marriage is now on the rocks over claims of infidelity.


In a recent post, Ayugi accused her husband of cheating on her with a friend, stating that she is not going to remain silent anymore.

“Breaking someone’s marriage is not Godly. I invited you as a friend, today unasema ambia Eko not to bring me home because love yenu haita grow. It’s not a battle @EkoDydda you don’t have to hide it anymore your ‘Dope’ is free to love you, sometimes it’s healthy to walk away. Na leo ndio ile siku I will not hide it for fame, money. I will stand with the truth and will never lie to people,” she wrote.
