Joe and Maribe

Jacque Maribe was in court today with the man she used to call her fiance Joe Irungu. The appearance was to set a date for a bail hearing.

The T.V anchor may not have spoken a lot but the affidavit that her lawyers presented for her spoke volumes. In it, she calls Joe her fiance but uses the term was meaning they are most likely no longer an item.

Ametemwa kama uji wa jana? Does Jacque Maribe’s affidavit show that she has dumped Joe Irungu?

But that wasn’t the only bombshell in the affidavit. In it, she claims that her life is in danger. In section 14 part VII the affidavit reads:

That otherwise, my life is in danger from 3rd parties and reference to annexure MO9 (a) and (b).

She then goes on to speak about an incident when she was booked at Gigiri Police Station. The affidavit reads:

The concern I had in Kiambu was with regard to one Mr. Kennedy, Kenneth Omondi booked into Gigiri Police Station where I was. he was brought in (i) Seemingly to ask me questions about what I knew about the murder. (ii) The said Kennedy, Kenneth Omondi (K.K Omondi) was booked in on Sunday 30th September 2018 and to the best of my knowledge captured in the Gigiri occurrence book.

The affidavit then adds how the said Omondi and the Chief Inspector Maxwell Otieno are from the same CID establishment. Jacque also explains that other people who were in the cells with her warned her of Mr. Omondi.

After Mr. Omondi introduced himself to her, he repeatedly asked her questions that were not in the public domain. The affidavit also claims that apart from Mr. Omondi knowing a lot about her case, he also enjoyed special treatment in the holding cells unlike anyone else.

That Mr. Omondi was allowed to eat food from Java which he always wanted to share with Jacque but she would always refuse.

The affidavit cites many other examples of the special treatment that Mr. Omondi was accorded in the cell, concluding with the suspicion that Mr. Omondi must have been a plant put in by Chief Inspector Otieno to gather evidence from her.
