Thursday October 18, 2018-It seems, beleaguered TV journalist, Jacque Maribe, has decided to save herself from the looming death sentence following the murder of Monica Kimani, telling Jowie to carry his own cross.
This is after she dissociated herself from the main suspect, Joe ‘Jowie’ Irungu, who is also her fiancé.
In an affidavit responding to the prosecution's application to deny her bail, Maribe said she was an innocent lover and should not be held responsible for Jowie’s actions.
She noted that her bail application should be considered on its own merit without factoring in her fiancé’s conduct.
Maribe regretted the prosecution's decision to charge her with murder on account of her relationship with Irungu even when there was no evidence placing her at the crime scene.
“Irungu was my fiancé as at then and in the circumstances I definitely communicated with him.”
“It is most unfair to use the communication between me and him in the given circumstances of our then existing relationship as a reason to deny me bail,” said Maribe.
She further claimed she was not home at the time the prosecution claims Irungu burned some clothes to allegedly destroy evidence.
“Any of his actions are not necessarily sanctioned or attributed to me.”
“I was not there if there was any burning.”
“I personally was not aware and did not endorse or authorise any burning of anything,” she said.
