Jowie back on Instagram? Jacque Maribe’s photos deleted

Published

Who is running the Instagram account of remanded suspect in Monica Kimani’s murder, Joseph ‘Jowie’ Irungu?

This is the question Kenyans are asking after Jowie’s account ‘registered unusual activity’ on Friday, November 29, after almost a year of dormancy.

Remanded at Kamiti Maximum Prison since September 2018 after being charged with the murder of the business woman alongside his fiancé Jacque Maribe, Jowie’s account had consequently since his arrest been inactive and frozen in time.

On Friday, however, Maribe’s photos were deleted from the page and an image of Jowie all smiles with an unidentified woman posted.

Maribe, a former Citizen TV anchor, was on her part freed on a Sh2 million bond in October and, according to a ruling by Justice James Wakiaga, barred from reading news or conducting interviews on matters related to the case.

Judge Wakiaga in his ruling stated that the prosecution did not prove that the media personality would interfere with witnesses.

“Based on the materials placed I am unable to agree with the prosecution that Maribe will interfere or abscond court or act in any manner prejudicial,” ruled Justice Wakiaga.

Jowie surprised the broadcast journalist at a city restaurant on July 30, 2018, after he went down on one knee and proposed in a romantic moment attended by among others Hot 96 presenter Shiks Kapienga and media personality Terryanne Chebet.

Published

on

This year’s Madaraka Day celebrations, which had been scheduled to be held in Kisii on June 1, will be marked virtually in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Given that public gatherings have been banned and Kenyans advised to observe social distancing, the government has put in place mechanisms for a virtual celebration which will be streamed through all media houses and social media platforms.

In a circular to all regional commissioners, Interior Principal Secretary Karanja Kibicho said the virtual celebrations will run from 8am and will culminate in the live address by President Uhuru Kenyatta from State House, Nairobi.

He said the prevailing situation, with regard to the Covid-19 pandemic, has made it difficult to have public gatherings to mark the day.

Since the Covid-19 pandemic started, President Kenyatta has been holding national events at State House. This includes the Labour Day celebrations on May 1.

The Madaraka Day production will be packed with entertainment and documentaries that highlight Kenya’s culture and development milestones, he said.

 

“This is therefore to ask you to advice the public to remain at home and follow the celebrations on radio and television,” directed Mr Kibicho.

Sources said that Kisii County might host the Mashujaa Day celebrations on October 20 if the pandemic will have been contained.
