Jacque Maribe sheds tears when she appeared before justice Jessie Lessit to face murder charges against Monica Kimani alongside boyfriend Joseph Irungu.

After the celebrity couple were separated for nearly two weeks as investigations into the murder of Monica Kimani took course, Maribe and Jowie the prime suspect in the case came face to face for the first time in Kilimani court where the duo are to be charged collectively for the murder.

Inside the courtroom was a sharp contrast as Maribe appeared remorseful and regretful while th fiancé who’s the prime suspect seemed to be at ease and could even afford a smile while his girlfriend couldn’t control her tears when the two were charged in consolidation for the murder of Monica Kimani.

DPP Noordin made the decision to charge both the murder dating evidence collected was strong enough to link the two to the heinous act. Earlier, it was speculated that Maribe would be turned into a state witness and testify against her fiancé who’s the prime suspect in the murder.

In a sharp twist of events, DPP made the decision to collectively charged for the murder. In the investigations, police say that on that night, Maribe and Jowie were in the same company and that Jowie while driving Maribe’s car to Monica’s apartment, was captured in a company of someone.

Police also allege that Jowie attempted to take his life by shooting himself inside Maribe’s bedroom following a disagreement that is yet to be detailed. The clothes worn by Irungu at the crime scene were also partly burned and recovered by police at Maribe’s House. It’s aksomdaid the knife used to commit the crime and which is yet to be found, was from Maribe’s kitchen.

Prime suspect Jowie appearing to be smiling when the two were arraigned before the court and charged with murder.

Maribe was initially considered as an accessory to murder by conspiring to mislead investigations, she knowingly lied to the Lang’ata police that Jowie was shot by thugs while in full knowledge of actual act.

Businessman Brian Kassaine who’s also behind bar with his gun having been used by Jowie in the attempted suicide and said to be poised to be charged for being in possession of illegal firearm, could possibly have cut a deal to be a state witness and testify against the murder suspects.

Jacque Maribe is represented by DP’s ICC lawyer Katwa Kigen while Irungu is represented by seasoned criminal lawyer, Cliff Ombeta.

Ms Maribe appears to be distancing herself from the boyfriend Irungu when they both met for the first time in court since arrests.

Updates:

Accusations Emerge That South Sudan Warlord Paul Malong Paid Sh600K For Cleansing Interview As Kenyans Slams Jeff Koinange For Granting The Interview

Published

on

Jeff interviewing general Malong.

Accusations are now flying that the former  South Sudanese army chief of staff Paul Malong could have bribed his way to the screens for a ‘rebuttal’ interview following an expose done by Africa Uncensored exposing his role in looting and causing destruction and blood bath in his country.

Malong strongly denied allegations of embezzlement of public funds or committing atrocities against civilians during the five-year civil war in the country.

A recent documentary released by The Sentry and echoed by Africa Uncensored ‘The Profiteers’ once again reiterated accusations against Malong who is under UN and US sanctions about his wealth and his involvement in the war crimes during the conflict.

 

In a 25 minute interview with the Kenya Citizen TVreleased on Sunday, Malong further said he didn’t take advantage from his position as Governor of Northern Bahr El-Ghazal or profited from his position when he was the chief of staff.

“They did not tell us where I got the money,” he said. He further said the documentary and those who accused him have to prove that he has stolen money, give the details of these accounts and the country where these funds are deposited

“I’m not a rich man I’m just taking care of myself and my family. I have nothing,” he said.

“Northern Bahr El-Ghazal is not an oil producing state and everybody knows that,” so why the accuse me, he wondered.

Regarding the time when he was the army chief of staff, he said the minister of defence is the one who plans the army budget while the chief of staff is the implementer.

I use what is given to me for certain jobs that I’m going to do. if people say I took the tents and sold them that may be, I took ammunition and guns and sold them that may be, (…) but I do not get cash,” he said.

The same for the war crimes and atrocities, Malong said he executed the orders he received from his military hierarchy the army commander in chief President Salva Kiir.

“I was not operating independently,” he repeated.

Also, he dismissed any responsibility for the killing of civilians in Juba following the clashes at the South Sudanese presidency in July 2016.

“During the J1 fight, I was in control of the army more than any time,” he said stressing that the clashes ended at Jebel Kogor.

When asked about the rape of women in Juba, he said it was done by security soldier but not his army.

“I know what happened. It was in one of the hotels and one of the ladies said that the person who had raped her is an agent of security soldier and his name was written,” he said.

General Malong and Malong Jr

On the UN sanction, Malong said “they are missing the point. If they speak about the cause of the war, the cause of war is Salva and Machar. Whatever I did in the army was just orders,” he said again.

The old friend of the South Sudanese president avoided criticising Salva Kiir for his sack from the position of the army chief of staff.

However, Malong said that he was disappointed when Kiir accused him of asking Kenyan, Ugandan presidents and even Ethiopian prime minister to support him to overthrow Salva Kiir.

The South Sudanese tycoon Lawrence Lual Malong Yor Jr. took part in the interview to explain that General Malong was not his father and he is not his relative.

He and General Malong said they would pursue those who continue to repeat such claims in order to prove the corruption of the former South Sudanese official.

It is ironical that General Malong ‘accepted’ for an interview with Jeff to clear his name yet he refused to give John Namu audience during the compilation of documentary to comment on the accusations.

Documentary ‘The Profiteers’ was set to air on KTN but it was cancelled on the last minute in what is speculated to have been as a result of orders given to the station to edit out Malong’s name who was adversely mentioned in the three parts documentary.

It only went to show how well connected and powerful Malong is.

New information emerging is the general could’ve bribed his way to the tv after parting with Sh.600,000 or above. According Steve Juma, a journalist, he was approached by unnamed diplomat who offered sh600K for an interview with the accused general.

Steve says he declined the offer but wasn’t surprised to watch the request materialize when Malong was hosted on Citizen TV.

The allegations.

The controversial interview has been labeled a cleansing attempt and has brought Jeff Koinange under harsh criticism.

Itumbi Shows Up In Court To Prove Strong Friendship With Maribe Has An Handshake With ‘Rival’ Jowie

Published

on

Itumbi shaking hands with Jowie.

If there’s anyone who has stood at least publicly with Jacque Maribe since she got arrested and charged for the murder of Monica, that person is Dennis Itumbi.

The two are rumored to have dated before given several intimate occasions that they shared publicly including a surprise birthday party while she was live on air.

Itumbi has been consistent in standing with Jacque who together with his fiancé Joseph Irungu, have been now jointly charged for murder. The government’s digital strategist has not shied away from expressing his feelings and heartwarming messages meant for his friend Maribe.

While many of her friends have not been seen publicly expressing their support neither showing up at the court, Itumbi and Maribe’s father are the ones captured on camera having gotten closer to the accused and in court during the proceedings in solidarity.

It was a show when Itumbi had the popular handshake with his ‘rival’ Jowie In Court. Jowie is the prime suspect in the murder. A teary Maribe was overwhelmed with emotions when his ‘ex’ showed up to give her moral support.

All factors aside, one thing is clear that we’re surrounded with fake friends who’ll stick around when things are merry and vanish when things go south. You don’t need many friends, keep the small circle with loyal and worthy friends. You need friends like Itumbi who stick around regardless of circumstances.

Museveni is on the spot for dictatorship and reigning terror on his opponents, recently, the bully president nearly killed Bobi Wine who also happens to be a musician and now an MP. Fearing for his growing influence and popularity in Uganda especially amongst the youths, Museveni faked an incident that ended in Bobi’s driver getting killed in what is assumed to have been a bullet meant for the young legislator.
