Former Citizen TV news anchor Jacque Maribe has finally confirmed that comedian Eric Omondi is the father of her son Zahari.
Ms. Maribe on Thursday posted photos of herself and Omondi attending their son’s graduation. The five-year-old is set to join lower primary next year after his graduation from nursery school.
“Family first. Happy graduation day, Zahari. We, mum and dad @ericomondi, are proud of you,” Maribe captioned the photos.
Omondi also shared the pictures on his Instagram timeline but did not put any caption to it.
Until Thursday, there were contradicting reports on who is the father of Maribe’s son although it was widely claimed Omondi was the dad. Others claimed blogger Dennis Itumbi was the father of the boy.
The two celebrities had remained tight-lipped as bloggers and Kenyans online speculated on who is the father of Maribe’s child.
“I know the baby daddy; however, it is not a good time to reveal him, Jacque Maribe is undergoing a difficult time,” Omondi told The Nairobian last year in reference to Maribe’s murder charge.
Maribe and her fiancé, Joe Irungu alias Jowie, were last October charged with the murder of Kenyan businesswoman Monica Kimani. Maribe was freed on bail but Irungu remains in remand pending trial.
