Mwalimu King'ang'i gives Janet Mbugua a tempting offer after she left Citizen TV

In mid-March this year, we broke the news that Janet Mbugua was leaving Citizen TV after spending half a decade there.

She revealed that it was time for her to take a sabbatical so that she could ‘breathe, reflect, pursue her passion projects in earnest and spend time with her young family.’

“Sometimes life forces you to reboot, whether you want to or not. Am I scared? Sure. A little. Anxious? Yes. Excited? Very! Broadcast has not just been my bread and butter, but the Ying to my Yang as far as career goes. My go to. My comfort zone. Stepping out of all that familiarity, albeit momentarily, can shake ones equilibrium a little…but that’s not unusual. But, I’m a closet Life-ist who’s ready to own that. Life is too short. Better to live it absolutely!” part of her goodbye post read.

She didn’t reveal where she is going to but unverified reports indicate that she had landed a lucrative deal with Redcross Society as a communication and advocacy director.

Other than the said job at Redcross, it seems that Radio Africa would like to have her too. Speaking this morning on Classic 105, Mwalimu King’ang’i broke the news of her leaving before adding that she is very much welcome at Classic 105. "Hapa iko Kazi." He said before telling Maina that she would be very well suited for a position on the screens of Bamba TV or Kiss TV.

“I love her presentation.” He said while commending Janet for the good work she did at Citizen TV.
