Jowie Tried To Kill Himself When Maribe Told Him The Relationship Was Over Dad Reveals In New Twists

Published

on

Jacque and her father Maribe escorting her to the Kikimani police station for questioning.

New details continue to emerge on the trending amdnmost complex murder in town. Jacque Maribe’s dad has raised fears over the life of her daughter should she confess against the prime suspect Jowie who was also her fiancé.

In a new deal, Maribe’s legal team had plotted to negotiate a deal and turn her into a state witness but it won’t be as smooth. Her dad, Mr Maribe now says her daughter’s life will be put in danger and forever live in fear should she testify against Jowie given that he has his accomplices roaming free and would pounce on her daughter. This comes at the backdrop that Jowie’s foreign partners flew in the country on his arrest in a bid to save him backed with local shadowy characters.

Mr Maribe admitted that Mr Irungu was his daughter’s boyfriend, but claimed they were not in good terms.

On September 20, a day after Ms Kimani’s murder, Ms Maribe had a major fallout with Mr Irungu at an upmarket bar when he went to pick her up, according to the father’s version of events. It was also this bar that Irungu mentioned in his statement. He was just from the murder scene supposedly.

Mr Maribe claimed that his daughter wanted to end the relationship. “She asked Irungu to return her car keys and ATM card. Even when they went back to the house, Jacque threw some of his clothes out. The man threatened to kill himself after Jacque said she would leave him. He borrowed a gun and shot himself,” Mr Maribe claimed.

But Mr Maribe said he did not know what prompted the argument between the two but speculated that it may have been “normal issues that young relationships face”.

Initially, the news anchor had told police that Mr Irungu was shot by a gang outside her estate in Lang’ata. But when asked why the daughter gave contradicting information to police regarding the incident, Mr Maribe attributed it to love.

“She may have felt responsible for his attempted suicide. At that time, she did not know about Monica and her connections to Irungu,” said Mr Maribe.

Mr Maribe, a two time Kiharu constituency parliamentary aspirant, said he knew Mr Irungu since he had visited his home with Ms Maribe twice or thrice but he had no idea where he worked. “She is an adult and I was not following much about their relationship. I even heard of their engagement over the media,” said Mr Maribe.

On her status at the police station, Mr Maribe said he visited her on Friday and that she was in good health, relaxed and “her conscience clean as she was innocent”.

She said given the way he brought her up, she was “disciplined” and not the type of a girl who could sit down to plan any crime, leave alone murder. “If she had bad manners, she could not have reached to the levels where she is right now,” he said of his daughter’s career.

Jowie drove into Monica’s apartment in Maribe’s car, used a fake ID which is said he picked from Maribe’s gate in Lang’ata, police are also saying the knife used in the crime scene was from Maribe’s kitchen and the suicide attempt that would later be reported as a shooting by thugs happened right in her bedroom and a live bullet left.

Just what indeed was Jowie’s intentions by leaving all the trails to Maribe and dropping everything at her doorstep. It can only be speculated that she was either an accomplice or smartly fixed in the murder by Jowie. Nothing is clear as the more time moves, more script shifts, however, what’s apparent is Maribe would’ve naively implicated herself in the murder thinking she was hiding a suicide attempt from a domestic brawl not knowing of the murder or maybe she did.

It can also be speculated that reason for Maribe asking out could’ve been linked to infidelity and that’s why he tried to introduce a crime of passion angle by leaving trails to Maribe in the crime if at all that was the case. He’s described as a manipulative and psychopath who could do anything.

Britam Risks Losing Billions As Court Rules In Favor Of Cytonn Over Unsubstantiated Fraud Claims

Published

on

 

Back in 2014 Britam accused four of its former employees of theft of billions of shillings, to the tune of kes. 8 billion, and sought to file criminal complaints about them. Britam said that the theft was discovered after audits done by accounting firm KPMG and law firm Coulson Harney.

The four former employees refuted this claiming that no such theft had happened and wrote to Britam asking them to disclose the said reports to prove their innocence. Britam, however, refused to disclose the audit reports and the four former employees then filed a lawsuit in the high court in 2016 seeking to compel Britam to disclose the audits.

After three years of litigation, the judge ruled and ordered that indeed Britam must disclose the said audit reports if they are relying on them to allege theft by its former employees. Additionally, the judge found Britam’s conduct so unbecoming that it also slapped Britam with the penalty of refunding the accused former staff with the cost of the lawsuit.

Contacted for comment, our source at Britam says that the board is furious with the CEO, Benson Wairegi, why he filed frivolous lawsuits just for the sake of trying to kill competition from former staff. The new investors IFC and Swiss RE are apparently unhappy with Mr. Wairegi and want to see him fired by the end of the year.

The stock has tanked by over 75% since he lost his team to Cytonn and is now trading at below IPO price. Our sources tell us that the new investors, IFC, Swiss Re, and AfricInvest are frustrated because they’re sitting on paper losses, having bought the share price at kshs. 15 and now it is trading at below 9 bob.

When we contacted a source at Cytonn, she said that “all their games shall come to a sudden and painful end. We are going to go after them for billions of shillings for damages. They are the ones with really big legal issues. The judge was very clear in his ruling. And we can assure you, the so-called forensic audits don’t exist, they have just fixed themselves with their lies”

Sooner or later the market will realize that this is the biggest corporate lie ever perpetrated by a listed company to investors and in plain sight of regulators and international shareholders like IFC and Swiss Re.

Our investigative desk obtains the ruling below.

Iringu said they were also investigating to see if the company conforms to taxation laws.

The KRA official said ongoing investigations which will take about a week will reveal if the company has been evading tax and to what extent. She appealed to KRA officials at the country’s border points to be vigilant in order to ensure no illegal goods get access to the Kenyan market.

‪DCI Recommends Charges Against Five Local Banks Over Involvement In The NYS II Heist As DPP Haji Forms Team To Review Files‬

Published

on

DPP Noordin Haji.

Trouble looms for banks and officials who were involved in the illegal NYS II transactions a scandal that saw Sh8B embezzled. DPP Noordin has issued a statement on the progress following investigations on the marked banks by the DCI.

DCI investigations as directed by the DPP on the criminal culpability has found five banks liable; Standard Chartered, KCB, Equity,Co-Op bank and DTB all have a case to answer. The banks violated restrictions that govern banks in Kenya by facilitating flow of proceeds from crime and money laundering.

Investigations established that the Standard Chartered Bank received a total of Sh.1,628,902,000 between January 2016 and April 2018 out of which Sh.588,558,000 was suspiciously transacted by bank’ Officials without reporting to the Financial Reporting Center as opposed to the POCAMLA regulations.

KCB according to the investigations had received Sh800M of which Sh148,397,000 was suspiciously transacted by bank officials without sticking to the POCAMLA regulations.

Equity Bank received Sh.886,426,904 and that Sh264,200,000 and USD58,000 was transacted without adherence to the regulations.

Diamond Trust Bank which is currently under prove over involvement in helping Dusit terrorists launder their money for the attack, is in the frying pan as well. Investigations reveal that, the bank had received Sh.164M out of which Sh27,946,298 went without being captured by the regulatory board.

Co-Op Bank received Sh.250M and suspiciously transacted Sh.25M without reporting. DPP has since constituted a team of senior prosecutors who’ll review the files and give recommendations in the next two weeks.

DTB had been fined Sh56 million by CBK while Co-operative Bank will pay Sh20 million. The five banks handled a total of Sh3.5 billion from NYS with StanChart handling the largest transaction worth Sh1.6 billion followed by Equity Bank at Sh886 million, while KCBprocesses Sh639 million. The same banks involved in the NYS I are also the ones being chopped over NYS II. It seems the fines never worked so the punishment this time should even be heavier.
