EXCLUSIVE: Why Jacque Maribe Has Quit Citizen TV

TV anchor Jacque Maribe has reportedly stepped down from her position at Citizen TV.

According to multiple sources who spoke exclusively to Kenyans.co.ke, Maribe was given an ultimatum to either resign or face the sack.

In October 2018, Royal Media Services (RMS), Maribe’s employer, came to her defense after she was charged with the murder of Monica Kimani at Lamuria Gardens Apartment, in Kilimani Estate. 

RMS Group Managing Director Wachira Waruru stated that Maribe was still their employee and supported her release on bail. 

She was charged together with her then-fiancé Joseph Irungu, alias Jowie. 

After spending a few days in remand, she was released on Ksh1 million cash bail and was granted an alternative of Ksh2 million bond or three sureties of a similar amount. 

According to the terms and conditions on her bail, Maribe was ordered not to read news or comment on any matter concerning the case. 

She was also told not to make any contact with any prosecution witnesses either directly or indirectly until the final determination of this case.

More so, she was not supposed to participate in an interview or interview anyone who is in any way associated with this case.

Jowie is still in remand after being denied bail on more than one occasion. The hearing of the case resumed on June 25.
