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.

Missing Links In Monica Kimani’s Murder As Police Struggle To Nail The Biological Identity Of The Killer Admitting Jowie Is A Hard Nut

Published

on

Jowie when he appeared in court.

Detectives continue to patch holes in the murder so foul of Monica Kimani in her apartment even with prime suspect Joseph Irungu aka Jowie and his fiancée Jacque Maribe having taken plea against the murder they’ve been formally charged for.

Missing links in the case which the police described was work of a highly trained assasin who left just enough trails and was smart enough also to throw off the cliff investigators.

Detectives, for example, wondering why Ms Kimani did not struggle as her hands were tied behind her back and her mouth taped shut.

Police are struggling to figure out if Monica was drugged as the two had been taking wine together. Her body did not have injuries consistent with a big struggle against an assailant according to police reports.

There were also no signs of struggle in the apartment, as one would expect. A source privy with the scene analysis told journalists she was tied like a goat before her throat was slit.

Police do not think she was tied in the bathroom, a police source speculating to journalists that she might have been trussed up in the bedroom and taken to the bathroom and killed.

The drugging angle would be consistent with the profile of the killer that the police have: A meticulous planner and trained killer who thought about the crime seriously in advance and covered his tracks, including disguising himself in a kanzu and stealing an identity card for use in getting into Ms Kimani’s apartment.

Assuming that the killer acted alone and was known and trusted by the victim, then the most likely explanation for the lack of a struggle is that he either tricked her to allow herself to be tied, or just drugged her.

Detectives said they were still trying to conclusively figure out the motive of the murder, and that DNA results were still being analysed.

As it stands, police are relying on circumstantial  evidence and fingerprints dusted from Ms Kimani’s home, wine glasses and furniture have shown that Mr Irungu was in Ms Kimani’s Lamuria Gardens flat, quite probably on the night of September 19. However, the forensics team has not given the DNA results yet.

“It will take time before we can really ascertain the biological identity of the killer,” a detective, who is privy to the investigation told the nation. “We are relying on circumstantial evidence for now, but we have not been successful in getting any important information from the main suspect in our custody. He has not helped much. All he says is that he was not involved in the murder. He is very guarded.”

For now, the source said, detectives have not been able to conclusively establish where Mr Irungu’s main residence or central place of operation. The house believed to have been his previous residence in Nairobi’s Buru Buru Phase 2 estate is currently occupied by another man.

The murder weapon used to slit Ms Kimani’s throat has also not been found.

Determining the biological identity of the killer will need DNA analysis and more so with the killing weapon which is not in the picture. Circumstantial evidence can be punched down by lawyers and even though the DCI exudes confidence that they’ve met the threshold, proving that it was indeed Jowie who slit Monica’s throat is the hurdle.

Police are however said to be in pursuit of a second suspect said to have been with Jowie that night and the murder weapon which could give a major breakthrough in this case. On the night Jowie was arrested he reportedly bragged to the police that the case won’t go nowhere going to cast questions as to just how much he knows and his silence and non corporation with the police can only mean he’s guilty or covering up for someone seemingly more powerful and buying time to evade the net.

Britam’s Plan To Use The Courts To Stifle Competition From Cytonn Has Fallen Apart

Published

on

Britam Group managing director Benson Wairegi

In a new twist of events, the Court of Appeal yesterday issued orders stopping Britam’s attempt to use the courts to distract its competitor, Cytonn.

It has emerged that Britam might not have lost Ksh1.2 billion under the watch of its former employees, as they claim. Instead, records show that the money was spent on various Britam projects in the country.

Bank records in possession of our investigative desk show that the money that Britam accuses four of its former employees stealing was wired by Britam’s own Fund Administrators from Standard Chartered Bank in Mauritius to Chase Bank in Kenya to different accounts held by Britam and its then Subsidiary, Acorn.

The money was meant for different projects which were initiated by Britam in conjunction with Acorn Group Limited. Acorn was Britam’s partner in real estate development, and even they (Britam) had shares in Acorn.

The money wired from Mauritius was acquired from investors. Mauritius was the preferred destination because of its tax treaty with Kenya hence avoiding double taxation. However, Britam group did not want the projects done for BAAM investors, they wanted the projects done for Britam directors, a move that former employees firmly resisted, hence the attempt by Britam to punish the four, a move that the court of appeal stopped yesterday.

The disbursements were signed by Shiv Arora who was the Investment analyst for Britam, Elizabeth Nkuuku who held the position of a senior portfolio manager and Edwin Dande, the then Chief Executive Officer (CEO). The Investment Committee had already approved the five projects, in which the Ksh1.2 billion was to be used on.

As stated, only three executives authorised the transactions, putting in question why Britam decided to include Patricia Wanjama in the suit. Sources within Britam intimated to us that the owners of Britam, working through the previous DPP, Keriako Toniko, decided to manipulate the justice system to punish the Cytonn four, who exited Britam to form their own company.

We are in possession of bank statements showing how Britam used the money:

The first Ksh9.9 million was disbursed to Edenvale Developments LLP, a student housing project sitting on a 0.4 acre piece on Jogoo Road, Nairobi.

Another Ksh42.2 million was disbursed to Starling Park Properties LLP, a real estate project on a 0.7 acre piece of land on Gitanga Road, Nairobi, now called 67 Gitanga on Agwings Kodhek.

The third Ksh43.3 million disbursement was made to Crimson Court Developments LLP a real estate project on Riara Road, Nairobi.

Sinopia Properties LLP received Ksh150 .7 million, a project sitting on a 202.9 acre piece of land located in Ollolooitikosh Town.

The final Ksh915.4 million disbursement was made to Mikado Properties LLP a a real estate development sitting on a 28.4 acre piece of land in Mavoko on Mombasa Road.

This case is important to the market because it is about big corporates trying to keep their position by manipulating the Justice system. For a company that is also owned by IFC, Swiss RE and Africinvest, it’s surprising that international investors would be part of bribing the system to so that they dominate the market.

Next we shall explain to you how Britam issued fake statements to investors in their unit linked education policies. Our mole at Britam informed us that the DCI has been investigating Britam about their Mauritius Ponzi Scheme run by previous shareholder, David Rawat.

While at it, we would like the Director of Criminal Investigations to also investigate these fake unit linked education insurance policies Britam has been peddling to Kenyans using teachers as their agents.

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.

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.
