If I ever had a reason to fear men, this story of Maribe got me suspicious of everyone I come across. I want to believe Jackie is innocent and she did what she did to cover up Jowie bcz of love and fear of bad publicity and losing her job. I don’t think she knew Jowie had killed someone. I feel for her and even more for Monica and her family. This is bad and the way I see this judge Nzioka sioni akimwachilia. Woi. Mungu wangu and her dad is a pastor.
Jacque Maribe’s story makes me reflect so deeply about the concept of being co-creators of the situations we experience.
They say love drives you to kill with, for, or abet murders your beloved commits, but sometimes it isn’t love.
Sometimes it’s the consciousness we enter into relationships with.
Sometimes it’s our attachment style that becomes our ultimate undoing.
Sometimes we are so desperate to fix this singlehood thing that we staunchly turn our heads when redflag 1, to 1,000,000 show up.
No matter how much we claim Jowie made her do it, the law will probably view it differently. That she was an adult with agency, and she chose to abet a murder.
She chose to go back to the Newsroom and report the murder she had participated in with a straight face.
I wish she’d loved herself and her career and CHILD enough to rat this man out to the cops.
I hope and pray she closed her lips because she was under duress, that the man threatened to end her …because otherwise
Interestingly, if she’d been the main killer, the man would have thrown her under the bus at 5.00am. Men perfected the art of self preservation millennia ago. In ride or die situations, it’s mostly the women who die.
The weirdest bit is that even after all the drama, another woman picked up this man and played house with him.
I don’t even know how that ended, or if it ended, but it goes to show where the collective consciousness of the women in this country is.
We don’t really like admiting that we have the power to stay away from problematic males.
We love the ‘He ruined my life’ saga a little too much.
If there was a pill I’d recommend to all women and girls in love, I’d call it:
ME FIRST, ALWAYS.
