Journalist Jacque Maribe was on Thursday grilled by detectives at the Kilimani DCI offices in an attempt to clear her name in the ongoing probe into the murder of Monica Kimani.

In her statement, Maribe admitted that she once saw Joseph Irungu aka Jowie with a gun in her house but had not seen it again after warning him.

She also reiterated that she had never met the deceased before and only came to know of her existence when she read the news of her brutal killing.

Initial investigations revealed that Jowie was seen driving a Toyota Allion registered in Maribe’s name but the journalist stated that her fiancé often used her car to pick her and drop her at work.

It has also emerged that when police went to pick Irungu from their house in Royal Park Estate, he was in the company of Maribe.

The journalist told police that on September 21, 2018, Irungu arrived at her house and said he had been shot and injured.

She then drove him to different hospitals seeking medical attention.

Maribe further revealed that upon learning her fiancé had been linked to the murder of Kimani, she sought refuge at her parents’ house.

A bullet was also recovered at their Lang’ata home and was taken for ballistic tests.

According to Jowie, on the said night, he spotted three men standing outside their house. He entered the house and came out to inquire why they were hanging around.

It was at this point that he was allegedly shot on the left side of the chest although preliminary findings show no shooting occurred at the scene.

Matiang’i: Stop whining, the world won’t end for not drinking this weekend

Published

on

Interior Cabinet Secretary Dr Fred Matiang’i has told off Kenyans for finding fault with his order for the closure of bars and entertainment joints over the weekend to allow for the national census exercise to take place.

Speaking on Thursday morning while addressing the media Dr Matiang’i said that he has heard the plight of Kenyans, but unfortunately he cannot revise the decision that has already been made.

He argued that the exercise only happens once after every 10 years and that Kenyans should be able to ‘sacrifice’ at least two days to allow for the smooth execution of the process.

“We are sorry for the inconvenience caused for the closure of social places. Please bear with us, we cannot revise the decision. But please bear in mind that it is only this once in 10 years, we are not being insensitive,” Matiang’i said.

KENYANS’ REACTION

“The directive to shutdown bars is not a motive to ban drinking, we cannot ban drinking. I am surprised at the reaction from Kenyans. You will think the world is coming to an end this weekend,” he further explained.

The CS gave the order on Tuesday saying that all entertainment spots, including bars, shall be closed from 5pm on Saturday, August 24 until 6pm on Sunday, August 25.

In efforts to remember and honour fallen Kikuyu Benga musician John Mwangi Ng’ang’a, popularly known as John De’Mathew, Murang’a Governor Mwangi Wa Iria has sponsored a music show (mugithi night) on Friday before the singer’s burial on Saturday.

The event, according to the county boss, will give DeMathew’s fans a chance to remember him by playing all his music.

In efforts to remember and honour fallen Kikuyu Benga musician John Mwangi Ng’ang’a, popularly known as John De’Mathew, Murang’a Governor Mwangi Wa Iria has sponsored a music show (mugithi night) on Friday before the singer’s burial on Saturday.

The event, according to the county boss, will give DeMathew’s fans a chance to remember him by playing all his music.

In his career spanning over 30 years, De’Mathew had produced over 50 albums.

He died on August 18, 2019 after his car hit a trailer-truck near Thika’s Blue Post Hotel.

WHOLE NIGHT

Artistes drawn from Mt Kenya region will also attend the Friday event which will be held at Golden Palm Hotel in Kenol town and which will go on for the whole night.

Fans of the late musician have also formed a WhatsApp group where they are pledging goats which will be slaughtered during the event.

According to Governor Wa Iria, the event will remind the Agikuyu people of the life and times of the late De’Mathew whom local leaders regarded as a seer or a Kikuyu prophet.

“We want to remember him by listening to all his songs which play a major role in uniting the Agikuyu community as well as advising and entertaining our people,” the governor said.

BONA FIDE LEADER

According to the governor, the De’Mathew was the bona fide leader of the artistes from central Kenya after the death of Joseph Kamaru last year.

“The late was not your ordinary musician. He took the mantle from the late Joseph Kamaru and as a matter of fact, it is only after Kamaru’s death that a sacco was formed and De’Mathew was appointed to be its chairperson,” the governor said.

Mr Wa Iria was named the patron of the musicians’ sacco known as Tamco Sacco and was instrumental in its formation and operations.

The governor has lauded De’Mathew’s leadership saying seven months after the sacco was formed, they have been able to buy land in Kenol town at a cost Sh8 million. He said he will continue working closely with the artistes to ensure they realise their dream.

The sacco was launched in January this year at Thika Greens in Murang’a where President Uhuru Kenyatta, the governor and other leaders sent their contributions.

MUSICIANS’ SACCO

During the launch of the Sacco, Mr Wa Iria advised the artistes to put more emphasis on investments than offering credit services to their clients to prevent the society from collapsing of as has been witnessed with other similar ventures in the recent times.

During the sacco’s launch, the late De’Mathew said they intended build a recording studio, commercial shops and conference rooms where members will be benefitting from the proceeds on monthly basis.

“We have been mocked and laughed at but we are determined in joining hands and growing together so that never again shall we be seeking fundraisers for the hospital bills and burials of musicians,” he said.

DeMathew will be buried on Saturday at his ancestral home in Mukurwe, Gatanga in a ceremony where the President Uhuru Kenyatta and other leaders are expected.
