CITIZEN TV’s Jacque Maribe arrested over murder of Monica Kimani after new evidence; to be arraigned in court.
“She is now in custody as a suspect in the murder,” Director of Criminal Investigations George Kinoti said
Ms Maribe, a Citizen TV anchor, was earlier questioned on the matter, to corroborate a statement by the main suspect, 28-year-old Joseph Irungu, who is her fiancé.
Mr Irungu will spend 10 more days in remand, a Kiambu court ordered on Wednesday.
Detectives also want to establish who owns a gun and a bullet which were found in her bedroom and which have since been taken for examination.
On September 28, Ms Maribe arrived at the Kilimani Police Station shortly after 2.30pm, accompanied by lawyer Katwa Kigen and members of her family.
She spent about 30 minutes at the Kilimani Directorate of Criminal Investigations offices before being escorted to the DCI headquarters on Kiambu Road.
Detectives also examined Ms Maribe’s car, a Toyota Allion believed to have been used by Mr Irungu to visit Ms Kimani in her Lamuria Garden’s apartment on the day she was murdered.
