Yesterday, Jowie and Maribe appeared before Justice Jessie Lesiit to take a plea for the murder of businesswoman Monica Kimani, where both pleaded not guilty.

Well, Maribe’s media colleagues have been very supportive during this difficult time and we’ve seen quite a number share encouraging message s on their various social media accounts. Her sister has also been with her through tick and thin.

 Maribe’s best friend TerryAnne took to social media to lash out at those criticizing Maribe, saying it may seem fun trolling someone but it’s not. Jacque has been ridiculed and at one point, she was mocked for appearing in public without makeup the first day she was arrested.

TerryAnne’s message read;

We had difficult conversations about the media industry. Glad I was part of this conversation. Shaming & hating may seem fun but consider that no matter how thick someone’s skin might be, being KIND and empathetic costs you nothing.

She went ahead to tell Kenyans to thrive on positivity because not everyone is not strong enough to handle being trolls.

Positive criticism often works better and just as well. Be the better person. You don’t have to shame someone to make a point. Always know that everyone is dealing with something despite the glam. ✌🏾

Jeridah Andayi, a Radio Citizen presenter told the public should stop being harsh on celebrities or rather media personalities because most of them have a life out there, not just being on the microphones and screens.

She wrote;

I’M IN THE MEDIA. I’M A WOMAN. I’M WELL KNOWN AND SO I FEEL RIGHT NOW WHAT JACQUE MARIBE IS GOING THROUGH. MOST OF THIS IS BECAUSE SHE’S WELL KNOWN AND SO SHE GETS JUDGED FOR EVERYTHING. I KNOW IT. I GET JUDGED ALL THE TIME BECAUSE I’M IN THE LIMELIGHT. WOULD YOU ALL BE INTERESTED IN THIS CASE IF IT WASN’T A MEDIA PERSONALITY? I DOUBT. LOOK HERE, WE’RE HUMAN BEINGS. WE HAVE A LIFE BEYOND THE RADIO MICROPHONES AND STUDIO CAMERAS . GIVE US PEACE. RESPECT OUR PRIVATE SPACE. I SAY THIS FOR HUNDREDS OF MY COLLEAGUES WHO ARE FEELING SO FATIGUED WITH JACQUE THIS JACQUE THAT, MEDIA WOMEN THIS AND THAT. WE HAVE A LIFE BEHIND THE CAMERAS AND OFF THE MICROPHONES. AND OH YES, WE REALIZE THAT WE’RE GREATLY PRIVILEGED TO OCCUPY THE PUBLIC SPACE. THAT DOES NOT MAKE US LESS OR MORE OF HUMANS. EVERY TIME YOU FEEL ENTITLED TO JUDGE THOSE IN PUBLIC EYE, THINK AGAIN!.
