Citizen TV’s Jacque Maribe resigns

This comes a few months after Ms Maribe was released on bail by the High Court following her arrest as a suspect in the murder of business woman Monica Kimani who was found murdered in her apartment in Kilimani.

During the bail ruling, Justice James Wakiaga restricted Jacque Maribe from reading the news, conducting interviews and making comments related to the murder trial until the case was concluded.

She later on returned to work as a news editor at Citizen TV.
