Unknown to many, the 39-year old anchor was making waves on television years before hitting legal age. Aged only 8, she started hosting a weekly children's show known as Children's Variety on the state-owned Kenya Broadcasting Corporation (KBC).
Citizen TV journalists: Inside sources at RMS indicate that prime targets are editorial director Linus Kaikai and news anchor and talkshow host Yvonne Okwara.
Yvonne Okwara could be the iron lady of TV journalism in Kenya today – the no nonsense TV host who rarely smiles when interviewing guests on TV or presenting a show.
At the Kenya Broadcasting Corporation (KBC), formerly Voice of Kenya (VOK), Okwara used to earn Ksh500 per episode.
Okwara will replace Annitah Raey, who will now host, Sizzle on Hot, a programme that airs Monday to Friday from 10 pm to 1 am
The new programme is seen as part of a strategy by Citizen TV to maximise use of its rich outlay of talent following spectacular raids on its rivals
