Was Jackie Maribe Appointed Communications Director for the Office of the Deputy President?

This tweet claims that former television anchor Jackie Maribe has been appointed Director of Communications at Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua’s office.

News of this appointment sparked conversation on Twitter with some congratulating Maribe and others questioning how this will affect the ongoing case.


Former television anchor Jackie Maribe is one of two people accused of the gruesome murder of businesswoman Monica Kimani at her home in Lamuria Gardens in Kilimani. Maribe and Joseph Irungu “Jowie” are accused of committing the murder on September 19, 2018. The prosecution has since called over 40 witnesses to testify against the two with Judge Grace Nzioka directing the parties to file their submissions and appear in court on September 30, 2022 for highlighting the submissions.


Jackie Maribe dismissed the claims through an Instagram story uploaded on her verified Instagram account.

Owing to the fact that Jackie Maribe is a public figure, news of her appointment would have been covered by various local stations but Piga Firimbi found no such reports.


Claims that Jackie Maribe was appointed as the director of communication at the deputy president’s office are FALSE.
