Jacque Maribe and Joseph Irungu remanded for seven more days.

Television journalist Jacque Maribe and her fiancé Joseph Irungu will spend another week in remand after the court set bail hearing for next week.

On Wednesday, Justice James Wakiaga directed the probation office to file a pre-bail report in court ahead of the hearing on October 24.

The report from social workers will inform the judge’s decision when deciding whether to deny them bail.

Judge James Wakiaga asked the two to report back in court on Wednesday, 24th, October for the mention of the murder case.

“We will hear the application on from 11.30am,” Wakiaga said.

The judge said if need be, the accused may submit any supplementary affidavits before the date.

Maribe wanted the court to release her to take care for her four-year-old son.

However, it is the prosecution that has to convince the court that there are compelling reasons to deny the murder suspects their freedom.

The two are accused of murdering Monica Kimani on September 19 at Lamuria Gardens Apartment, Kilimani.

The court directed that Mr Irungu, who was to undergo surgery on his left arm, be taken to Kenyatta National Hospital.

Among people who were in court to give Ms Maribe support apart from her parents are Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria and former PSCU director Dennis Itumbi.

Justice Wakiaga has, however, warned the media against reporting what has not be tendered in court.
