Citizen TV Journalist Jacque Maribe was yesterday treated to a sweet birthday surprise from her friends, colleagues at Royal Media Services and her family.
Ms Maribe who was appearing in court yesterday for the mention of the murder case against her was first surprised with a cake from her parents and friend moments after leaving the court.
The supportive parents together with Bashka (Maribe and Joseph ‘Jowie’ Irungu best friend) handed her the cake, leaving her speechless.
Upon arriving at her workstation, the mother of one was again treated to another huge cake and joined by a number of her colleagues.
On the other hand, Maribe and fiancé ‘Jowie’ surprised Kenyans when they appeared in court earlier in the morning for the mention of their case.
They were seen embracing each other in public for the first time since their indictment.
The relationship between Jacque and Jowie became rocky after they were linked to the murder of Monica Kimani in her Kilimani apartment on September 19.
It also emerged in court that the prosecution was yet to supply both Maribe and her co-accused, Irungu, with statements from protected witnesses in order to prepare their defence.
