Why Dennis Itumbi display of love for Jacque Maribe has surprised Kenyans

By Akello Odenyo | October 26th 2018

Bold technology guru has wowed Kenyans, more so women, with his display of love for Jacque Maribe in and outside court.

 “And therefore take the present time, with a hey, and a ho, and a hey nonino, for love is crownèd with the prime.” - William Shakespeare

The beginning of the Monica Kimani murder case birthed another story featuring one of the accused, TV journalist Jacque Maribe, and Jubilee Party digital warrior Dennis Itumbi.

From the day the news anchor and her fiancé, Joseph Kuria Irungu alias Jowie, were charged with the murder of Ms Kimani, Mr Itumbi has been the one constant face in the courtroom.

Both seem to bring out the best in each other. From the downcast girl who clung to her dad in a police station, the Maribe appearing in court now is bold, smiling and confident.

At the touch of love, they say, everyone becomes a poet, and in times of trouble, the poem becomes the love.

On the day of her first court appearance, despite her boyfriend sitting next to her, Mr Itumbi gave her a deep hug (see pictures) before extending a similar but lighter courtesy on the man.

And on Wednesday, Itumbi hopped into the dock and sat next to her. On social media, Itumbi has penned a plethora of poems for Maribe, so much so that he is now the man every woman would want in her corner.

With every post, he is winning legions of admirers, especially among women, as he has stuck out his all for Maribe. On Wednesday, just before her bail hearing, Itumbi penned a scintillating verse “from the depth of a soul that has always connected...”

“Situations come and go, but our friendship will outlast fake headlines, rumours, false accusations, social media updates, the blog frenzy and even the unfair comments thereafter…

“But here’s my hand, No matter what happens, I know I will be there to whisper my reservations, I know I will be there to cheer you up, I know I will be there to watch you dance in victory!”
