Former Citizen TV news anchor Jacque Maribe on Sunday 9 August narrated how her life and her career came to an abrupt end after being arrested in connection to the murder of businesswoman Monica Kimani.
The mother of one who was speaking during her first episode of her new show dubbed The Hot Seat, emotionally narrated how her career came crumbling down when it was at its peak.
She went on to compare the moment to driving at a high speed and then hitting the emergency brake.
“Jacque is at the peak of my career until then all of a sudden you just don’t know how. Life just happens and it’s like you are driving on such high speed and then you have to take an emergency break,” she recounted.
Maribe who was arrested and charged alongside her then-boyfriend Joseph “Jowie” Irungu mentioned that 2018 was a good year as everything was falling in place including being a senior female reporter until the incident happened.
“Again being a female senior political reporter, it was an interesting journey having risen like that, and all of a sudden you feel like everything is falling into place and making so much sense until one day you have no idea what the world just decides to do. Literally a standstill. Have you ever felt like your world just stopped? “
“And you stop breathing, stop understanding what is going on around you and I know you know what I’m talking about that happened in 2018 that basically just brought my journey as a journalist to a halt so unexpectedly,” she said.
She noted that could not give too many details on the topic since she was not legally allowed to speak about the case. However, she hoped that she would be able to have the conversation with her fans in the future.
She explained that from the incident in her life, she had learned that life can change at any time and become extremely difficult to understand how it works.
