Police want to record a statement from a TV journalist whose fiancé was arrested on Tuesday in relation to the murder of a woman in Nairobi.

Homicide officers investigating the murder of Monicah Nyawira Kimani said they wanted Jacque Maribe to record a statement to clarify a number of issues that have emerged during their probe.

Ms Maribe’s fiancé, Joseph Kuria Irungu, is in police custody following Ms Kimani’s killing. The 28-year-old woman’s body was found in a bathtub in her house in Lamuria Apartments on the afternoon of Thursday, September 20. Her throat had been slit.

Police say the car Mr Irungu was driving when he was spotted in Kimani’s house before her body was discovered is registered in Maribe’s name.

The Toyota Allion saloon car has been detained by the investigators.

“She is not responding to our calls but we have left a message for her, requiring her to come for further clarification. Even her lawyer says she is not responding to calls,” said an officer.

Maribe did not report to her workplace yesterday.

Irungu was also driving the same car at about 1.30am on September 21, when he claimed to have been shot and wounded in the chest by a gunman who allegedly escaped on a motorbike outside their house.

Irungu told police they arrived in the estate at about 1.30am when he spotted three men standing outside.

Irungu told police he took Maribe into the house and went back to the gate to check what was happening. That is when he claims to have been shot.

Irungu said he went back to the house and told Maribe what had happened. 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 Langata Hospital the same night seeking treatment for the gunshot wound. But yesterday, one of their lawyers told a Kiambu court that the couple also went to Kijabe Mission Hospital.

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.
