Citizen Television former journalist Jacqui Maribe went underground and has been keeping a low profile after her fall from grace to grass in 2019.
Ms. Maribe has been working on building up her YouTube Channel where she posts hard-hitting interviews with the who is who in Kenya.
Jacque who by the time she was the queen of Television had quite a number of friends, with a tight circle, but this all stopped after she stopped working for Citizen Television.
From the look of things, her tight circle of friends deserted her, her clique had members like Monica Kiragu, Terryane Chebet, Kirigo Ngarua and Shix Kapienga all of them had worked for Royal Media but left except Monica Kiragu who is still there.
Maribe went on her Instagram account to thank her sister Monica Maribe for always being there for her and holding her together.
“My sister, Carole Maribe, may you have the abundance of grace you have shown me while unwell. May I repay your kindness? Thank you. Mum wa panicking, dad of coming, and all the friends who checked in,” she wrote.
Someone close to her said she no longer hangs out with her squad as she has a new set of friends.
“Of late she has also not been looking like herself, she has lost a lot of weight. Her family is now her support system,” the source said.
Ms. Maribe was a high-flying journalist whose career was at its peak came crushing after she was implicated when her ex-boyfriend was accused of murder.
In an interview with True Love in 2020, Jacque said that her ‘famous girl squad did not want to hang out with her anymore.
“A lot of my ‘friends’ did not want to associate with me, people who I really thought I was very close to. Some, I heard did public statements. I did not see them, disassociating themselves from me.
These are people who we have been seen going on holiday with, you know, being told we are squad goals.
I will be very honest with you. I have like two female friends, to date, who stood by me from the beginning.
The rest of my friends are guys, but now you come to learn who your true circle is. I don’t want to say I lost many friends because they were not friends, I just gained true ones” she concluded.
