Jahmby Koikai narrates how she lost news anchoring job

Former Trend panelist and host Jahmby Koikai has for the first time opened up on how she lost her news anchoring job at KBC, when she had just started.

In a throwback post she shared on Instagram, the Fyah Mummah said that after growing from an intern to a news anchor in the state broadcaster, she got dropped from anchoring schedule because she called in sick so many times.

Jahmby at the time was a weekend news anchor and still suffered from endometriosis but doctors kept on dismissing her condition as normal.

Hey fam...a lil tbt...upcoming tv news anchor. I have tonnes of black outfits. This is because I've always had a crazy flow during my period. In high school, I lost count of how many times my period would be dripping all the way to my legs and me fainting at assembly. The heavy clots during my period were also something that the doctors dismissed as normal. During my tv anchoring days, I called in sick so many times until I was dropped from the schedule. Endometriosis has caused women to become former shells of themselves,” read part of her throwback post.

Jahmby who has been battling endometriosis for many years later on went to work for the Nation Media Group (NMG) where she worked as reggae show host on their then Swahili TV and radio stations QFm and QTV.
