Jacque Maribe’s family and friends are celebrating after she was released on 1 million shillings cash bail.
The mother of one and her fiance Jowie have been in remand since September 2018 after they were arrested.
Granting bail to Maribe, the judge considered several factors, key among them the need for her to go home and care for her four-year-old son given that should she be found guilty, she will be facing the death sentence. Secondly, the judge noted that although she was arrested 10 days after the murder of Monica Kimani, the journalist did not in any way try to interfere with evidence or witnesses.
Jacque Maribe must not make contact with any of the prosecution witnesses.
She shall not have a TV discussion relating to Monica Kimani’s death
