State House’s secretary of Digital, Innovations and Diaspora Communications, Dennis Itumbi has given his two cents on the whole situation involving Jacque Maribe.
In a statement on his Facebook page, Itumbi revealed that he has spoken with Ms Jacque and she is willing to speak with the police but will tell her story on her own.
“I have spoken to her and she will obviously tell her story to the police. She will tell her story. I have not asked for details, those details belong to detectives I’m sure she will narrate what she knows and is sure about,” he wrote.
Itumbi mentions that he believes that Jacque genuinely fell in love with Joe “Jowie” Irungu, the two connected and were still learning each other, only that her story turned out differently.
“Jacque, in my view is the reflection of a girl next door, who is in love. What perfection and satisfaction to feel like you are a part of another being. To have inner wings that you flap in awesomeness because your emotions are on a high only described by a combination of adjectives. What is wrong with love? Nothing. Loving someone and offering your entire life, body and spirit to them unconditionally, is the highest form of human sacrifice,” he continued.
Itumbi urges everyone to give Jacque time for her to share her story as she will do so when she is ready. He also urged Kenyans to pray for her.
“Having spoken to her, I am convinced she will tell her story of love to the police in detail. For like you and me we all have our stories, some more intense than even hers,” he wrote.
The former blogger also sent his condolences to Monica Kimani’s family.
