In a well written Instagram post, Ms Kwamboka has explained why Maribe is being charged as an accessory to murder of Monica Kimani.

Legal perspective

“ACCESSORY TO A CRIME In criminal law, helping or contributing to a crime is as criminal as actively and actually commuting the crime. You can be criminally prosecuted along with the perpetrator (the person who did the criminal act) for 1. Coming up with the idea2. Commanding someone to commit a crime3. Hiring someone to commit a crime for you4. Instigating a crime5. Giving advice on how to commit a crime6. Covering the crime, whether before or after it’s done” shared Ms Kwamboka.

Advice

“So what do you do if you are aware that your partner is about to commit a crime or has committed a crime to avoid being an accessory avoid prosecuted?1. Make a report to the police. 2. Convince the ‘criminal’ to go forward. Do not try to be ride or die or you will be riding together to prison. In case you failed to make a report here are some of the defenses 1. Mistake of fact; where you a genuine mistake as to what you friend or partner did or was about to do. E.g they asked to borrow a knife and you give them thinking they are going to chop tomatoes but they butcher their wife with it. 2. Abandonment; if you stopped offering you help on time and therefore making it hard or impossible for the principal to commit the crime.3. Withdrawal; ‘ I didn’t help because it was wrong, and I tried to take away the gun so he wouldn’t kill her” shared Ms Kwamboka.
