As @Micymas and many accusers opine Ms. Maribe was an accomplice and got off easy. I have been in toxic relationshits, I am telling you they have the capacity to make you do things you can not even imagine.
I don’t see Maribe as an angel but then neither are we, we have all done alot of dumb shit in a moment of weakness. You think you can’t lie to the police for the ‘love of your life’? Bro! Then you have never been in love.
As a fan of true crime I find myself recreating crime scenes in my mind. Like I imagine myself in her shoes. It’s late in the night, Jackie is probably not very sober herself, here comes Jowie shooting himself with Kasaines gun right after burning his kanzu disguise, btw the common thread wasn’t the kanzu or his khaki pants, it was the red cap. Being fashionable can send you to jail but I digress. So Jowie needs medical assistance and p3s must be filled. They have to come up with a good story because the true story sounds so absurd.
Officer, my fiance here came home and started burning a kanzu and other personal effects in the backyard in the middle of the night. We had a quarrel and I told him to hand over my car keys, house keys and ATM cards because I was done with him. He then shot himself in the arm. I had my child to think of, so I acted calm and compliant to get him out of the house. We even put wheat flour paste on the wall to hide the bullet. We then came up with a story about being shot by thugs.
I mean, it was the witching hour, the woman was scared, not that sober and sure as hell had no clue that her fiancee had come from slashing his side chick’s throat in her bath tub. She only remembered being dragged out of a club in Kilimani where she was partying with one Sonko Mike Mbuvi by an emotional Jowie. She thought it was a lovers’ tiff.
Shit got real when a story she read on the lunch hour bulletin turned out to be the nexus of the events of the bizarre night she had just had with Jowie Irungu. She was flabbergasted. Bewildered and felt like she was in a badly scripted play.
I can never judge Maribe because even though I have never lied to the police or done illegal shit that involves the government, I have done some pretty crazy things under the influence of love and probably other substances such as lack of enough sleep. I just thank God that if I dated a mercenary I didn’t know about it. A woman can be dating Lucifer himself and not even realize it.
The saga of Jowie has a recce guy called Jennings who drove him to the scene of the crime. It has a deceased money laundering queen at the center of it. Who willingly signs up for this kind of thing? Not with a cushy job and good connections. She thought she had it all. A hot fiancee who knew how to take her to Nirvana and propose Infront of her envious girl squad.
Weuh. Talk about everything going to shit in no time. Btw I have never understood this fiance shit like how Shiro or Shiko Muriuki was a fiancee to a man she’s been with for a decade. Some people have two marriages and a divorce in that time.
If you have never been in situation don’t judge. Hujaishi hujaumbwa. I pray that Jackie seriously reevaluates her life and turn over a new leaf. She has been on a steep learning curve. Binadamu tumeumbiwa majaribu. So utamcheka yeye kesho makubwa zaidi ya kupate.
