Jacque Maribe might be wishing that this week from hell would not have happened. And this week might have started the week that past but that would be naive to say, I posit.
Jacque I believe got it wrong when she started dating the man called Joe Irungu aka Jowie. He was a man who posted images of himself in military gear and was a man who seemed to be friends with the who is who.
And Jacque seems to have bought this image hook, line and sinker as the two got engaged earlier this year. That facade was destroyed this past week when Jowie as he affectionately known as was implicated in the murder of Monica Kimani, that happened this past week.
This whole affair reminds me of a one-time media darling Esther Arunga. Her career and subsequently, her image went down in a ball of flames when she got involved with her husband Quincy Timberlake.
Below are the parallels between the two:
Both were news presenters
Esther and Jacque both had stellar careers in the Television departments at KTN and Citizen television. They had earned millions of followers and admirers.
Both were warned initially about their guys
Their were murmurs and complaints about the men the respective ladies were dating when they began to.
But both the women went headlong into their relationships, eff the haters!
Both were way out of the leagues of their guys
The ladies were at the top of their game in the television industry when they both dated the men.
The men in this case, Joe Irungu and Quincy Timberlake both had sketchy pasts with claims that Quincy was a conman.
Why would such eligible women waste themselves with men like these? Only they know.
Both got into trouble because of the men they dated
Esther got into trouble when she started dating new man Quincy Timberlake. From then on it was a spiral for the news presenter with her joining a dodgy church and then quitting her wonderful job.
Let’s not forget that the couple lost a child because of Quincy foolishness in Australia.While Jacque might not have quit her job, she is now a person of interest in the murder of Monica.
All because of the man she was engaged to.
Both went to great lengths to support their respective men
Jacque’s car was used by her fiance, Joe Irungu on the night of the murder. It was even claimed that she helped drive him to hospital after he sustained a gunshot wound.
At the height of her scandals, Esther a trained lawyer sued her own parents after they were understandably concerned with her state of mind. Talk about going to bat for your man.
