Anne Ngugi transitions from TV to Radio

She will co-present the BBC Swahili programme, Dhira ya Dunia, with Dinah Gahamanyi, who has been at the station for nine years



Veteran Swahili TV anchor Anne Ngugi has debuted as a presenter of BBC’s popular news programme Dhira ya Dunia.

The veteran TV Swahili news anchor will no longer be on your screens as we had initially indicated. However, her fans will nevertheless be happy to once more connect with her, but this time through her sweet intonation. She went on air on Monday.

Ngugi, formerly of KTN and K24, will co-present the BBC Swahili programme with Dinah Gahamanyi, who has been at the station for nine years. Listeners can bank on a great combination from the two veterans.

Most of Ngugi’s fans greeted news that she had landed a lucrative job with joy given her past struggles including being sacked by Mediamax while five months pregnant with twins and raising a special needs child.


KBC news anchor-cum-reporter Roncliffe Oditi has also joined the British broadcaster, which is strengthening its regional bureau based in Nairobi’s Riverside area.

In the process, BBC has also embarked on massive recruitment of African journalists, especially Kenyans.


Some of those who have joined it include Larry Madowo, who left NTV to become its Africa Business Editor and Celestine Karoney, who left China’s CGTV to head its sports segment. Others are Lynne Wachira (sports), Michelle Ngele (news) and Michelle Katami (sports).

Business Today is the leading independent online business website in Kenya. Started in 2012 by a veteran business journalist, it has a huge following both in Kenya and abroad. It covers various business and related issues. Email editor at: [email protected]
