Detectives were on Wednesday evening looking for television journalist Jacque Maribe as investigations into the murder of a woman last week in Nairobi’s Kilimani neighbourhood gathered steam.
Detectives on Wednesday visited her house in Lang’ata but did not find her. She also did not pick calls and colleagues at work said she was last seen in office on Tuesday.
Ms Maribe is the fiancée of Mr Joseph Irungu, the prime suspect in the killing of 28-year-old businesswoman Monica Kimani, who was found dead in her apartment last week. Her throat had been slit and her hands bound together.
Mr Kuria was arraigned in Kiambu on Wednesday and detained for 10 more days at Muthaiga Police Station.
In his statement he said he had been with Ms Maribe on the night Ms Kimani was murdered. Police are looking for the journalist to corroborate the alibi of her boyfriend.
