PSC Disowns Jacque Maribe’s Government Appointment Amid Controversy

The Public Service Commission (PSC) has disclaimed the purported appointment of former television news anchor Jacque Maribe to a government position, contradicting claims made by Cabinet Secretary Moses Kuria.

In a press release issued on March 14, 2024, the PSC clarified that it had not engaged Maribe for any role within the government, refuting social media posts attributed to CS Kuria.

Chairperson Anthony Muchiri affirmed that neither Maribe’s appointment nor any request for her employment had been processed by the commission.

The statement emphasized that any vacancies would be filled through a competitive recruitment process, should the need arise.

Maribe’s speculated appointment stirred controversy, considering her tumultuous past, including her association with the highly publicized murder case of businesswoman Monica Kimani in 2018.

Despite being acquitted of involvement in the murder, Maribe faces prosecution for allegedly misleading the police during the investigation.

The former news anchor’s potential rise to a government role raised eyebrows, particularly due to the absence of public advertisement for the position and her criminal record. Speculations suggested that Maribe’s connections with CS Kuria and President Ruto’s aide, Dennis Itumbi, may have influenced her purported appointment.

The PSC’s announcement coincides with the sentencing of Maribe’s former fianc√©, Joseph ‘Jowie’ Irungu, to death for Kimani’s murder.

While Maribe awaits her legal proceedings, the uncertainty surrounding her professional future persists, exacerbated by the PSC’s denial of her alleged appointment.
