In an exclusive Interview with SDE, Kirigo reveals that she received the news of her sacking TV with shock as she never imagined that she could be fired from the TV station at that time.

According to her she knew that some people would be laid off but she never pictured herself in that shoe.

“My lay-off came as a bit of a shock to me as I did not see myself leaving Citizen TV any time soon. Well, I knew that some people would be laid off but I did not give it much thought as I was focused on making myself better in my job,” Kirigo Opens up.

The unexpected unfolding of events forced the media personality to travel abroad to spend some time with her relatives

"What I actually dreaded came to be a reality. In that shock, I wasn’t sure how to react.  But there was no going back for me. I had to move forward. I have some of my relatives abroad and they invited me over to spend some time with them and I considered it a way for me to take my mind off things,” Said Kirigo.

She added that she took the exit as a learning experience and since then she has learnt to dedicate most of her time to herself.


The hard times away from the TV screen pushed Kirigo to start her own online show dubbed The Girls Table.

“Yes, my show is currently up and running and I have shot four episodes already. It is basically an online show that mostly targets women and women empowerment. I decided to do an online show as everything is moving digital and the reach is bigger and further.” Added Kirigo
