Dennis Ole Itumbi, the bold technology guru has wowed Kenyans, more so women, with his display of love for Jacque Maribe in and outside court.

“And therefore take the present time, with a hey, and a ho, and a hey nonino, For love is crownèd with the prime.” William Shakespeare

The beginning of the Monica Kimani murder case birthed another story featuring one of the accused, TV journalist Jacque Maribe, and Jubilee Party digital warrior Dennis Itumbi. From the day the news anchor and her fiancé, Joseph Kuria Irungu alias Jowie, were charged with the murder of Ms Kimani, Mr Itumbi has been the one constant face in the courtroom.

Both seem to bring out the best in each other. From the downcast girl who clung to her dad in a police station, the Maribe appearing in court now is bold, smiling and confident. At the touch of love, they say, everyone becomes a poet, and in times of trouble, the poem becomes the love.

On the day of her first court appearance, despite her boyfriend sitting next to her, Mr Itumbi gave her a deep hug (see pictures) before extending a similar but lighter courtesy on the man. Know if news is factual and true. Text  And on Wednesday, Itumbi hopped into the dock and sat next to her.

On social media, Itumbi has penned a plethora of poems for Maribe, so much so that he is now the man every woman would want in her corner. With every post, he is winning legions of admirers, especially among women, as he has stuck out his all for Maribe.

On Wednesday, just before her bail hearing, Itumbi penned a scintillating verse “from the depth of a soul that has always connected…” “Situations come and go, but our friendship will outlast fake headlines, rumours, false accusations, social media updates, the blog frenzy and even the unfair comments thereafter… “But here’s my hand, No matter what happens, I know I will be there to whisper my reservations, I know I will be there to cheer you up, I know I will be there to watch you dance in victory!”

The full poem exudes an energy and warmth that every woman desires, especially in the kind of situation Maribe finds herself in. It’s a warmth that can even be felt in their gazes. Before then, he had penned a similar poem, this time addressed to Maribe’s child, but singing her praises. Itumbi’s ‘friendship’ with Jacque didn’t start yesterday. They were good friends long before she met, fell in love with and got engaged to Jowie.

Friends say Jowie was quite the bolt from the blue that swooped down and won her heart. At the time, Itumbi put on a brave face, wished her well and moved on. The resurgence of his affection in court, however, has all the signs of a love-struck man – one completely taken by Jacque’s beauty. In 2015, Itumbi shocked many when he stormed a live TV show to deliver a surprise birthday cake for Maribe.

It was a romantic first in Kenya’s broadcast TV history. No wonder Maribe, who was winding up the Citizen TV lunchtime news, wept. Itumbi later took to social media to crown the day with what he does best – poetry. Friend or more than friend, Itumbi’s comportment in the face of Maribe’s predicament is pushing the ceiling for men. And women are praying for more Itumbis in their lives.

Arrangements are in place for fans and counterparts to next week mark the 22rd anniversary since the death of Congolese musician Pepe Kalle Yampanya.

The burly baritone voiced singer who collapsed and died on November 29, 1998 in Kinshasa will be remembered as one of the entertainment greats with his Grand Empire Band.

Most of his fans will remember him for some of his popular tunes like ‘Roger Milla’: (dedicated to Cameroonian soccer legend Roger Milla), ‘Moyibi’, ‘Pon Moun Paka Bouge’, ‘Bitoto’ and ‘Amour Pedre’.

Notably, he recorded several collaborations with his long-time counterpart Nyboma Mwandido, who lives in Paris, France. Both had performed together in the early 1970s in Kinshasa.

Though there are no special shows arranged due to the Covid-19 pandemic, some of his former band members including the Kinshasa-based Lofombo Godo will dedicate online shows to him. Lofombo, who is a bass guitarist and producer, also had a stint with the Delta Force band.

Most of the former band members of the Grand Empire Bakuba settled in Europe after Kalle’s death. Among them were Papy Tex (of the ‘Kanda ya Nini’ hit song fame), Elvis Kunku, Ebuya Doris Djuna Mumbafu and Kinanga Boeing.

Jacque Maribe: I suffered two miscarriages before I got my son

Former Citizen TV news anchor and media personality Jacque Maribe says she lost two pregnancies before she got her son Zahari.
Zahari’s father is comedian Eric Omondi.
In an interview with True Love Magazine, Ms. Maribe said she battled infertility and suffering miscarriages was tough for her as she did not know what was wrong.

What made things worse and what made the media personality think she would never get a child was a disclosure by the doctors that she had suffered from the septate.
A septate uterus is a deformity of the uterus, which happens during fetal development before birth. A membrane called the septum divides the inner portion of the uterus, at its middle.

The condition was to be fixed through surgery but luckily she did not go through it.
“We were lucky we found out earlier so I was told I had to undergo surgery to get rid of it and give ourselves a period and wait and now the baby would have at least enough space to carry to maybe 30 something weeks and don’t have to get to 40. I remember I panicked and I said I’m not gonna do this,” she said.

“It took a while, I can’t remember how many years it was and every day I used to pray and ask God ‘what is too hard for you? I don’t have to have this surgery if you want you can make that thing elastic by whatever miracle but just make it elastic, create space.”

Bien Baraza’s wife Chiki Kuruka has for the first time revealed that she met her husband through a friend, Emmanuel Jambo.

Chiki showered Emmanuel, a celebrity and award-winning photographer with love, thanking him for being the best friend one can ever have.

In a length post, the fitness coach-cum-radio presenter wrote,

A story of friendship. Dear @emmanueljambo, You are the force behind so much of what is my life. You introduced me to my husband, you drove me for hours to find my dog, you found us our house. I have cried to you countless times, and laughed with you even more. You are to me, the definition of goodness in this world, and to say I love you doesn’t even come close to the admiration I have for your heart, the respect I have for your soul and the excitement I have for the blessings that will certainly come your way. Happy birthday to my brother, my friend, my family. More Whiskey, more awful dancing, and more picture perfect moments to come. ❤.
