Popular radio presenter speaks on going broke despite having a six figure salary
She learnt the hard way
Carol Radull who is one of the most established female sports journalists revealed that she always went broke despite earning a handsome salary, while she worked for international media houses like the BBC and Reuters, in an interview with SDE.
Radull said that she started earning so much money at a young age and she would take her friends out most of the time without saving a cent.
“I started earning good money when I was very young. Despite earning a six-figure salary, I was not saving. I would walk into a bar with almost 20 friends and shout ‘peweni!’ My account was always at zero every end of the month.” She said.
The Kiss 100 sports presenter said that after she lost her job, she only had Sh4,000 and her sister helped pay her rent for six months as she tried to get back on her feet.
“I had a savings account which had Sh4,000 by the time I lost my job. I was a spendthrift. If you ask me what I did with the money, I wouldn’t know because I did not save,” she said.
