Later in the day, it was spotted along Lang’ata Road enroute to Galleria from Lang’ata Cemetery before diverting towards Rongai at 3:26 pm.
About an hour later, the car was seen heading to Yaya Centre in Kilimani the second time that day.
Minutes before midnight struck, Maribe’s car was seen along Mbagathi Road towards T-Mall then shortly afterwards rerouting to Mbagathi Hospital.
By 4am that night, the vehicle had been captured near Villa Rosa Kempinski, Kenyatta Avenue and back on Lang’ata Road heading to Madaraka.
At 7:15am on September 20, Maribe’s vehicle was seen near Bomas of Kenya.
Last month, a witness was put on the spot over a strange “come help me sleep” text from Kimani’s phone. In his defense, he claimed their relationship was merely platonic and was astonished too.
The 24-year-old was found dead at her apartment in Lamuria Gardens in Kilimani shortly after she jetted from South Sudan.
