PSC denies appointment of Maribe as Head of Communication at Public Service Ministry

The Public Service Commission (PSC) says it has not appointed journalist Jacque Maribe as Head of Communication in the Ministry of Public Service, Performance and Delivery Management.

In a statement released on Thursday, PSC Chairperson Ambassador Anthony Muchiri clarified that no such appointment has been made, neither has a request to employ her been received by the board.

“For the record, the said position will be filled through a competitive recruitment process should a vacancy arise,” stated Muchiri.

The statement comes in response to assertions by Cabinet Secretary Moses Kuria, who purpotedly claimed that Maribe’s appointment had been made by the Public Service Commission.

“It is true except that I am not the one who appointed her but the Public Service Commission,” Kuria stated.

Maribe’s appointment comes in the wake of her recent acquittal  in the murder case of businesswoman Monica Kimani, who was tragically killed at her apartment in Nairobi’s Kilimani area in 2018.

Maribe had been charged alongside her ex-fiancé Joseph Irungu, alias Jowie.

Justice Grace Nzioka ruled that there was insufficient evidence linking Maribe to the murder, emphasizing that the prosecution had failed to provide substantial proof of her involvement in the crime.
