Jacque Maribe Is Mentally Fit For Trial, Say Doctors


In line with the court order given by Justice Jessie Lessit, tests have proven that Jacque Maribe is indeed sane and therefore fit to face trial for the murder of Monica Kimani. It now remains the burden of the prosecution and witnesses to prove that she was involved in the death of the businesswoman alongside her fiance, Joe Irungu.

Ms Maribe has been in remand at the Langata Women's Prison as she awaits the plea hearing set for next Monday. Joe Irungu is also in remand awaiting the same hearing.

Their neighbour, Brian Kassaine was released on Thursday this week after reports emerged that he had agreed to testify against the two in exchange for dropped charges, which included handling an unlicensed firearm.

The battle lines have been drawn as the defence tries to prove, beyond reasonable doubt, and poke holes into the prosecution's case to allow Ms Maribe to either go free or get a reduced sentence.

Mr Irungu had already undergone a mental test and was proven to be ready for trial. He will be represented by lawyer Cliff Ombeta while Ms Maribe will be in the hands of lawyer Katwa Kigen.
