"Judicial Service Commission is pleased to announce the appointment of Sophia Wanuna as Deputy Director and Head of Directorate of Public Affairs and Corporate Communication at the JSC. The appointment took effect on 29th April 2023," the JSC announced.

This comes just days after she resigned from KTN following her 11-year stint at the station.

"As I celebrate my birthday today, my heart is full. I appreciate all the wonderful colleagues I had the privilege to work with as a journalist. Grateful for those who have watched me over the years. For the hundreds that I hosted on TV, asanteni sana. A new chapter now begins," she said.

She attended Mirithu Girls High School in Ndeiya village, Kiambu County, where she was a strong protestant and served as the chairlady of the Christian union movement.
