Media personality Jacque Maribe has opened up on challenges she faced after she was involved in a highly publicised murder case in 2018.
Speaking during an interview with True Love Magazine, Maribe said that most of her female friends deserted her and did not want to be associated with her.
The mother of one noted that she was part of a girl group thet received massive admiration on social media.
While in custody, Maribe said that some of them issued public statements disassociating themselves from her.
She disclosed that only two of her friends stood by her when the world was literally against her, adding that they are the only friends she has to date.
She added that her family was the greatest beacon of hope who never judged or questioned her guilt or innocence.
Maribe further accused some of her media colleagues of falsifying information surrounding the whole case.
The journalist recalls being zombified at some point where she could listen to everyone talking in her ears, and all she could hear is noises from all directions.
Maribe also spoke on her experience in prison, saying that during her 17-day stay at the Lang’ata Women’s Prison, other remandees were uncomfortable engaging with her, with the perception that she was a rich celebrity.
She, however, bond with them with time and some even got to tell her stories that led to their arrests.
Although it was tough, Maribe said she tried to be optimistic about it, and they would even make each other’s hair sometimes and laugh their escapades off.
Maribe and her ex-fiance John Irungu are facing charges of murdering businesswoman Monica Kimani, after her body was found lying lifeless in her Lamuria Gardens home on September 20, 2018.
