Maribe detained for 10 more days to allow police conduct further investigations

Citizen TV news anchor Jacque Maribe has been detained for 10 more days to allow police conduct further investigations into the murder of Monica Kimani.

Maribe was arraigned at the Kiambu Law Courts on Monday in connection with the murder of Ms. Kimani, who was found murdered in her apartment in Kilimani, Nairobi.

The court directed that she be detained at the Gigiri Police Station, where she spent the weekend after being arrested on Saturday.

The prosecution had asked for 14 days to detain the TV anchor, arguing that the investigations required more time as DNA samples need to be collected as well as more statements from Maribe’s friends and colleagues.
