Edith Kimani became a frequent face on our TV screens after winning a popular TV presenter competition on KTN. She climbed the ladder to become the face of Primetime news and now, girl is international.
Edith Kimani is now a presenter at an international TV station, DW. For the big achievement, she thanks Larry Madowo for pushing her to be her best and Janet Mbugua, her soon to be sister in law, for creating a path for her in the wilderness in media.
to the @officialjanetmbugua‘s who came before me, who faced the wilderness and charted new paths - thank you.
To the @larrymadowo’s who challenges us to be more, do more, know better - thank you.
But most of all Edith Kimani is grateful to her fans. Those who believed in her and voted for her.
It’s a job I got through public voting, and so I naturally feel accountable to my viewers- particularly Kenyan ones.
For the opportunity I thank you. Every day I work hard to build on ‘The Presenter’. I know how important journalism is and I don’t take the global position I now have at DW for granted
Edith is in a Thanksgiving mood because today marks 10 years as a journalist. A job she loves, enjoys and one that challenges her.
It’s fitting that this post marking my 10 years in journalism was taken by the Baobab tree- native to Africa and famously adaptable.
My job has made a little baobab out of me.
The work brings me joy.
Gives me access.
I absolutely love it.
Time flies so fast, just the other day she was a newbie in the journalism game and now she is celebrating 10 years and is a mentor to younger journalists. Since she found her poison in terms of her career, we wish all the best.
