Janet Mbugua speaks on earning Sh800,000 monthly salary at Citizen TV

She has finally let the cat out of the bag.

This is because there was a rumour that she got poached from KTN to Citizen TV and offered a plump salary of Sh800, 000 per month.

She has finally spoken on earning 800 Gs at the Royal Media Services TV Station.

“No.” She said refuting the high 6-figure salary on Talk Central “It’s so sad. I would be rocking up in here in a Lamborghini and being like ‘You can’t tell me anything.”


She then went on to reveal how she landed the plum job at Citizen TV. “It’s crazy coz I had gone to South Africa and then I came back, I wanted to be back in Kenya. I kept in contact with Farida Karoney; you know who was my boss at KTN. And she said that ‘If you come back let’s talk.’ and that’s it. When I came back we had a conversation and I said I want to be part of the next elections and that is why I am back in Kenya’. And the process was that. I got in but it wasn’t 800,000 Shillings. That was so crazy! I remember people treating me a certain way because that was what they thought.”

“I am not sure where it came from. It’s very strong today.” She said about the rumour which continues to plague her till today.
