Jackie Maribe and Dennis Itumbi
Rumour had it that the TV presenter was so romantically involved with Dennis Itumbi who serves as the Director of the Digital Communication in the President’s office. The duo have been intimate friends as well as long-term job mates. What caused many think that the two were lovers was a photo that went viral of the two kissing in public. Furthermore, on one afternoon of 18th December 2015, Mr Itumbi surprised the lady with a happy birthday cake while she was still live on TV reading the lunchtime news. However, as it turned out Jackie Maribe engaged to someone else news confirmed that the two are just friends.
Jackie has always kept her dating life very private, and it is why Kenyans are so responsive to speculate when she is seen in public with a man. Grapevine alluded that comedian Eric Omondi was her baby daddy, a story that they both rejected saying they were just close friends.
Jacque Maribe and Eric Omondi
Jacque Maribe has similarly been linked romantically to the top comedian Eric Omondi. Omondi confirmed they had a connection. “Yes, I have had a relationship with Jacque Maribe,” Eric Omondi said in an interview.
The affair became apparent after the two were spotted in several social venues looking in love. However, it was when Jackie’s all-white birthday when the issue came to the surface.
Helpless to conceal their burning fire, the duo locked lips, kissing passionately paparazzi’s seized the moment. Eric later played the episode down saying theirs wasn’t a romantic kiss.
“I did it because it was her birthday,” Omondi said back then. After being asked if he is Jacque’s baby daddy, he said, “I can’t talk about that.” Eric Omondi says the duo are no longer an item adding that he moved on.
After Jacque Maribe was held for being a murder suspect, Eric Omondi clarified on claims that he is the father of TV journalist Jacque Maribe’s son.
Eric said that he knew who the baby daddy was, but this was not a great time to reveal him. “I know the baby daddy; however, it is not a good time to reveal him, Jacque Maribe is experiencing a difficult time,” he said. Eric’s words came after a close friend to both Maribe and him said the comedian was the birth father of her son.
This friend said that the moment Eric Omondi broke up with her, she was hugely affected. The friend also confessed that Eric has been footing child support bills since the baby was born in May 2014.
