Jacque Maribe sent to Lang’ata Women Prison




TV journalist Jacque Maribe has been sent to Lang’ata Women prison by Justice Jesse Lessit.

Maribe will be held at the facility until Monday morning when she will appear in court again to take a plea.

While at Lang’ata, Maribe will also undergo a mental assessment at Matheri Hospital to establish if she is fit to face the charges.

Maribe’s Lawyer Kagwa Kigen tried to intervene and have the judge reduce the time she will stay behind bars before plea taking but Justice Lessit stayed put.

Her co-accused Joseph Irungu will also be detained at the Industrial Area police station.

The two lovers are being charged with the murder of Monica Kimani who was killed on September 19.

The two will appear in court on Monday, October 15.

Earlier, it was an emotional moment on Tuesday morning as TV journalist Jacque Maribe and her lover Joseph Irungu alias Jowie were arraigned in court.

Sitting at the dock, Maribe was overwhelmed by emotions and could be spotted shedding tears.

As her lawyer Katwa Kigen whispered to her ears, the ex-news anchor could be seen wiping tears off her cheeks.

The moment was the same as her mother hugged her and possibly consoled her; Maribe’s eyes were watery, heavy with tears

Omosh reveals his pay while starting out at Tahidi High



Comedian and actor Joseph Kinuthia popularly known as ‘Omosh’ from his role in Citizen TV’s program Tahidi High has opened up about how he landed the role and how much he was being paid per episode.

Before joining the program, Omosh was a garbage collector but in 2005, his elder sister Naomi Kamau told him to try out for the Tahidi Auditions.

“I worked as a garbage truck driver for five years until 2000,”  he said in the interview with Nation.

“Naomi always told me I had something special as an actor as she had watched me since childhood…I became ‘Omosh,’ a smart-aleck, know-it-all watchman and with my years working in the garbage dumps in the slums of Nairobi, I could not have been better suited for this part.” 


While many actors in Kenyan have always started with a low amount, Omosh was lucky to be paid a considerable amount of money after enlisting.

“I was only getting paid 3,000 per episode, but I was giving the part the very best I could.” he said.

CNN’s Richard Quest speaks on being gay during Nairobi tour



CNN anchor Richard Quest has opened up to being gay and has urged Kenyans embrace same sex relationships.

Quest was on Tuesday interviewed by Capital FM where he explained that he chose to live in New York and London because they have no restrictions on who one chooses to love.

They are both cities that people in this country can admire, would aspire to be in and would look forward to visiting. There is a reason why I live in those cities…There is a reason why those cities attract the talent and wherever because we can live our lives as we wish. We can love who we wish,” he said.

The journalist said Kenya should embrace same sex relationships to allow people to live and work freely and compete with other nations.


I am obviously going to be advancing an agenda that says there should be at least the decriminalization of same sexual activity. It is straight forward, I am not gonna mess around with that one. That is obviously my belief…I do not for a moment, doubt the sincerity of those people who are against me on this issue.

And I can respect their point of view, I merely say that in this day and age, if you want to succeed, if you want Kenya to be a thriving, vibrant modern economy, you are going to look at this in a different way and ask yourself what is it about these very successful places that we need to at least try to attract. That is the way you do it. You let people live their lives, love who they want and the way they wish,” he said during the interview on the morning radio show.

“All in all professionally, I know the work I do here every day is better because I’m honest about who I am,” Quest said in his show.
