SEE ALSO :Jowie admitted to hospitalAccording to police, Irungu was using Maribe’s car when he was seen driving in and out of the compound of Monica’s apartment block. Images of the car captured by surveillance cameras on the roads he used from off Denis Pritt Road to his residence in Lang'ata show the driver was in the company of another man whose identity police are searching for. Another team of detectives has been in Juba, South Sudan, since Sunday. Monica stayed and worked in Juba and police want to retrace her movements and activities. The team is investigating what she carried when she left Juba for Nairobi on September 19. They also want to know what she did for a living, her earnings and any other activities she could have engaged in.

Maribe was said to have been in low spirits when police visited her yesterday at Lang’ata Women's Prison and did not want to talk. According to an officer involved in the case, Maribe became a suspect under the law that states that everyone is a party to an offence who actually commits it, does anything to aid any person to commit it or abets any person in committing it. “Where two or more persons form an intention in common to carry out an unlawful purpose and to assist each other therein and any one of them, in carrying out the common purpose, commits an offence, each of them who knew or ought to have known that the commission of the offence would be a probable consequence of carrying out the common purpose is a party to that offence,” the officer said. “An accessory after the fact to an offence is one who, knowing that a person has been a party to the offence, receives, comforts or assists that person for the purpose of enabling that person to escape,” said the officer citing the law. Mr Kinoti was said to have personally interrogated Maribe as part of efforts to crack the case. Director of Public Prosecutions Noordin Haji said he had independently reviewed the evidence so far on record before deciding to charge Maribe and Irungu.
