Inside Jacque Maribe’s Miserable Life After Release

Embattled Citizen TV Journalist Jacque Maribe thought she had breathed a sigh of relief after Justice James Wakiaga released her on a sh 1 million bail last month.

Maribe walked out of the Langata Women’s Prison on 31st October, hoping to take a long warm bath in her Jacuzi at her partial apartment in Langata.

But that was not the case as the prosecution did not hand over her house despite being ordered to do so by the High Court.

Fresh from a nightmare period at Langata Prison, where she had been remanded after being charged with the murder of Monica Kimani, Jacque did not anticipate coming to another prison.

According to an affidavit filed in court, the journalist revealed that she has had to ‘beg for clothes and accommodation’ and ‘borrow’ a mobile phone since hers was taken away.

“It is an absolute violation that despite explicit court orders, provision of law and undertakings by the prosecution, that materials have not been supplied to Ms Maribe on timelines provided and that the default has persisted for long,” reads part of the affidavit.

She has also been denied access to her Toyota Allion Car. Maribe also notes that her child has been subjected to the criminal justice process and inconvenience.

Basically, she has been living like a scout.

This will hower change as the prosecution has agreed to hand over her house. The Prosecutor Catherine Mwaniki, however, told the court her phone and car would not be released yet as they were exhibits in the case. “We are waiting for a report from the Government Chemist, which is not ready, on whether they should release it or use it as an exhibit,” said Mwaniki in regards to Maribe’s car.
