Former Citizen TV news anchor Janet Mbugua has announced that she is taking a break from social media.

In a post she shared on Instagram, the mother of two announced that she was only taking a break, after having a great week.

She went on to thank the people that have supported her in her petition on menstrual health and for signing the petition that will be sent to parliament.

Janet Mbugua leaves social media

She also promised to comeback sooner than people expect.

It’s been such an incredible week! A lot of it spent online and now it’s time to be present offline, at least for a bit. A huge thank you to you who’ve participated in such key conversations around social issues, particularly on health and gender rights. A special thanks to those who’ve signed and shared my petition. Let’s get more signatures on there! The more the voices, the better the progress. I’m bummed that I won’t make it to the Women Deliver Conference in Vancouver this year, due to unavoidable circumstances. For our national champions going, like @nicelengete and @josephinekulea among others, make us proud! To all of you, Happy Madaraka Day 2019, see you all soon! #TimeOut#BePresent,” she wrote on Instagram.

Petition

In a petition to Members of Parliament, Janet Mbugua called on the legislators to improve on the Menstrual Health Management (MHM) Policy in Kenya to ensure all women in Kenya are receiving adequate MHM services. 

In a statement, the media personality demanded more action ahead of the Menstrual Health Management Day that was on Tuesday last week, to ensure all menstruating women and girls, whether in workplaces, in the communities, or at homes are supported.
