Forensic detectives in Nairobi on Thursday impounded Citizen TV anchor Jacque Maribe’s car to search for evidence in the murder of a woman in Kilimani.

The whereabouts of the journalist remains unknown but her car was towed to Kilimani police station for forensic examination.

Ms Maribe’s fiancé  Joseph Irungu is the main suspect in the gruesome murder of Monica Kimani.


Police have been looking for Ms Maribe and believe the Toyota Allion is the one that the suspect used on the fateful night, when he is accused to have killed Monica.

Police also visited the deceased’s house in Kilimani for further dusting.

Maribe’s fiancé Joseph Irungu, alias Jowi, was arrested on Tuesday in relation to the murder and detained for ten days as detectives said they also wanted a statement from the journalist.

During Monica’s requiem mass in Thika on Thursday her brother claimed Jowi had wanted an affair with his late sister.
