Jacque Maribe’s celebrity friend comes to her defence

One of Citizen TV’s Jacque Maribe celebrity friends has come to her defense online.

Journalist Terryanne Chebet over weekend urged her Instagram followers not to be judgmental on the murder charges hanging over Maribe, in a subtle defense to her troubled friend.

And on Monday, Chebet denounced rumours on social media that she has been summoned by police for questioning in connection to Maribe’s arrest.

Chebet is among the circle of close friends in Maribe’s life, having been part of her highly publicized engagement to Joseph Irungu aka Jowi.

Jowi engaged Maribe after few months of dating and was arrested last week in connection to the gruesome Monica Kimani’s murder.

Maribe was arrested over the weekend after a series of questioning and house searches by the police.

Chebet on Sunday shared a caption in a subtle support to her friend writing; “Here’s to a blessed week to you all. ❤ Let us show a little more kindness, a lot less judgement. ??.”

Maribe’s other close friends include radio presenter Shix Kapyenga, TV director Monica Kiragu and former presenter Kirigo Ngarua. None of them has come out to show support of their friend so far.

The five friends have been pictured celebrating together including Maribe’s engagement party and Chebet’s birthday in Mombasa.
