Exclusive: Dennis Itumbi’s heartwarming poem to Jacque Maribe

After surprising Citizen Television anchor Jacque Maribe with a large birthday cake live on air, the Director of Digital Communication in Office of the President of Kenya, Dennis Itumbi, went an extra mile and composed a heartwarming birthday poem for her.

Jacque Maribe on Friday, December 18 celebrated her birthday to much affection from renowned personalities such as NTV’s Larry Madowo, social activist Boniface Mwangi, among others.

Mr Itumbi’s poem, obtained exclusively by Citizen Digital, describes the full of life Jacque as a cheerful woman whose “beauty shines through her smile”.

Below is a transcript of the poem:

“Sometimes when the sun rises

And its rays go through her window

And her beauty shines through her smile

Then there’s only one thing we can say

May Jacque Maribe live

Not only to experience deep kisses of love

From nature and man

But also to stand in rain

And within the sun rays

And walk towards days of freedom, long life

And may she laugh hard

May God keep her and bless her

Happy birthday Jacque!”

“You are a statement of possibilities, Jacque”

This is not the first time Dennis Itumbi is extending well wishes to Ms Maribe.

In October, 2015 the Digital Communications personality congratulated the golden voiced media personality for being named as Janet Mbugua’s replacement on prime time news, Monday Special.

Janet, who is still on maternity leave, took time off the screen to welcome her first born baby Ethan Huru Ndichu.

Praising Ms Maribe’s career journey, Itumbi said: “You are a statement of possibilities. Your brand may not be understood at times, but one thing is for sure, you have been patient, hardworking and focused. You fight for your space; it is never handed over to you.”
