Anne Kiguta opens up

Anne is a proud mother to two fast-growing kids whose life she hardly if ever talks about in public spaces because her rule is one: “home life is also my very valued private life and I’d like to keep it that way.”

Details she let out during her recent one-on-one Q&A online session with fans, giving fans a glimpse of her flashy home space.

Anne let her fans throw in questions about her that they are curious about from her culinary art, to her admirable gardening skills, even matters parenting.

One fan threw in the question of her two boys, asking to see the adorable babies but a frank Kiguta responded;

“Gosh, so many of you have said this but we’ll have to let you down on that one my loves.”

Sharing a background photo with her children admitting;

“I’m rather traditional and so I’m vehemently against it. My babies are still too far young, including the eldest, to be on social media. In fact, I really regret having posted my eldest at all.”

Drawing the line between who she is in the public space and who her children are personally.

“Mummy already has a pretty public life. They deserve their privacy,” she stated.

Wrapping up admitting that discussions around her kids are like sacred moments for her and cannot really share much about it.

The beauty was previously in a relationship with President Uhurus nephew Jomo Gecaga, where they sired twins before partying ways, something she attested as one of the best decisions she ever made.

Regardless of the spaces they work in, their professions, their choice of industry or even their age. Let’s dive right in.

Anne Kiguta finally responds to pregnancy rumors (Screenshots)

Soon as news went viral of Anne Kiguta’s unusual bulging belly, fans flocked social media, some congratulating the lass on the development, others trying to unveil the man responsible.

However, the news remained unconfirmed until she spoke today, thanking everyone for the lovely messages and warmth during this time.

Confirming she is expectant of two once more and could not hide the elation in her, thanking God for the golden opportunity.

Guys some PERSONAL news. It’s true!!I’m expecting two baby burgers!! Twins again!! I serve a mighty God! God is faithful (sic)

The no-nonsense K24 journalist was left in shock after news of her pregnant again struck the airwaves because she just can’t remember how she even got expectant in the first place.

And who knows by Sunday we may be having a watermelon. All in all #GodWins Thanks for the Love & concern.

Before bashing the reports as “Fake News!”

She called out Kenyans for not even giving her the chance to just eat to her fill and not have to explain why her belly is unusually protruding.

Gosh can’t I have gluten and be left in peace! Jezoos!

Kenyans savagely asked her to accept the blessings instead of denying the claims, but this was her response:

Flashback Friday! Photo of the gorgeous Anne Kiguta before the fame and money

Anne Kiguta has definitely come from so far and just like most celebrities who have it to the top; Miss Kiguta worked hard to get to where she is right now.

Just a few hours ago Willis Raburu who is friends with Miss Kiguta went on to share a never before seen photo of the lass back in her campus days.

Judging from her pose on the photo, Willis Raburu claims that this is where ‘Punchline’ her show began.

Humble beginnings

In a well detailed post, Anne Kiguta thanks Willis Raburu for sharing this photo as it reminds her of the struggles she faced before getting where she is.

According to Kiguta, the photo was taken when she was she was working for Hope FM – where she had been earning peanuts which couldn’t cover her bills leave alone bus fare.

Through her Instagram page, the lass went on to write;

Thank you @willisraburu for reminding how far I’ve come!! I was 18. First job at Hope Fm. Really earning peanuts. No what’s less than peanuts? Half a peanut? That’s what I was earning. I’d leave the Daystar Athi River campus, drop off at Airport view estate and literally walk all the way to NPC valley road… actually it was more like run! Why walk, because I had choose between the luxury of getting on a bus or a cab or saving that fare. The bus would get to Nairobi at 5:30pm & I’d be in studio at 6:30pm. Always exhausted but just so thankful to be on air and having the time of my life with this guy! I could cater for my little expenses with my few shillings from this gig. Like most of us I wasn’t born with much more than a loving and decent family. And like my family I had to learn how to work for any little thing I had. And I always have. Sure we were not “poor” in the sense that my parents could afford to take me school and I went to some pretty good schools but bottom line- you had to work”

Jomo Gecaga fuels breakup rumor with Anne Kiguta as he appears in public with Lola Hannigan (Photos)

Rumors about Anne Kiguta’s breakup with Jomo Gecaga started when she deleted his photos and video from her Instagram account in May 2018.

Kiguta had posted a video of Jomo and her first born daughter, Wairimu from her previous relationship, having a daddy daughter moment and wished him a Happy Father’s Day On Father’s Day in 2017.

Jomo, who is president Uhuru Kenyatta’s nephew and personal assistant, is the father of Anne Kiguta’s twins. The two are however alleged to have gone their separate ways all because of Lola Hannigan.

Hanging out together

Jomo and Hannigan have been spotted together once again. The first time the two were seen together was when they flew together in a private jet to attend Nana Gecaga’s 40th birthday celebration in Malindi.

Citizen TV gives strongest indication Anne Kiguta is leaving the station

There have been rumors that Anne Kiguta will be leaving Citizen TV but no one has confirmed it quite yet. But if the station’s recent action is anything to go by then Kiguta is surely on her way out.

Kiguta was assigned the Monday Special news bulletin during the recent rebranding of Citizen TV. But now the station has replaced the mother of three from her Monday prime time slot.

Speculations are rife that Anne Kiguta will be joining K24 soon and now it appears Citizen TV is well prepared for her exit, to fill her position.

Citizen TV has been running promos indicating Yvonne Okwara and Hussein Mohammed will team up to host Monday Special news bulletin.

K24 is set for a major re-launch and now it’s clear that Anne Kiguta and Betty Kyallo will be unveiled together at the station. Betty quit KTN towards the end of July.

Citizen TV has also lost two other journalists – Waihiga Mwaura who joined BBC and Jacque Maribe who has been a guest of the state ever since she was arrested in connection with the murder of Monica Kimani.

Another nasty breakup? Anne Kiguta hints her relationship with Uhuru Kenyatta’s nephew has hit rock bottom

Uhuru Kenyatta’s nephew and Personal Assistant (PA) Jomo Gecaga might have serious issues with his baby mama Anne Kiguta if the hint from the Citizen TV anchor is anything to go by.

For starters, Jomo is the father of Anne Kiguta’s twins. The Citizen TV anchor gave birth to twins (a boy and a girl) on July 1st 2016 at Nairobi Hospital. Anne has another daughter from her previous relationship.

Anne and Jomo have kept their relationship under wraps for the years they have been dating. The Citizen TV anchor only posted a video of her baby daddy on social media in June 2017 to confirm they are an item.

Trouble in paradise?

Anne has since deleted Jomo’s video that she posted on her IG. The video showed Jomo and Anne’s eldest daughter playing together on Father’s Day.

Anne’s decision to delete the video has sparked speculations that all is not well in her relationship with Jomo Gecaga. Recently Anerlisa Muigai deleted her boyfriend’s photos from her IG and later on confirmed they broke up.

Anne Kiguta flaunts her beautiful natural hair that will leave most women jealous, we can bet on it! (Photos)

There is special about a curvy woman, with dark or brown skin who knows how to take care of her natural hair.

Whether you like it or not, most men detest weaves and prefer seeing their women rocking their natural hair but due to the pressure of always trying to look ‘modern’ women will always wear the fake hair!

Well, Anne Kiguta also like to wear weaves and truth be told – very few have seen her wearing her natural hair.

However I bumped into one of her Instagram videos and managed to get screenshots of her stunning natural hair that looks like a big Afro!

Her natural hair has left many questioning why she even wears fake hair when she has such beautiful natural hair underneath.

As expected the mother of three did not respond but you can take a look at her hair in the photos below.

Doesn’t she look lovely!

Local celebrity parents who have twins

Delivering and raising twins is one of the hardest things ever but as much as it seems as a full time job, we have celebrities who have managed to pull this off. Well, this could be because the best things come in twos.

Below is a list of celebrities who have had the gift of raising these adorable multiples;


This former actress also known as Barbara Chepkoech left many talking after photos of her baby bumps emerged online. She actually had the biggest baby bump many had never seen in their lives. Even before she announced that she was expecting twins, it was a but too obvious not to see it. Anyway, she welcomed her babies about a year ago and they keep getting cuter as they grow older.

Grace Msalame

She is undeniably the hottest mom in town and I bet she knows it too. Grace Msalame and Paul Ndichu have always been praised for having such adorable baby girls that always turn heads whenever they step out. It is also undeniable that they are following into their mothers footsteps, judging from the photos and videos shared by the former TV queen on her gram.

Dj Kaytrixx

Though lately he has been keeping a low profile. DJ Kaytrixx and his wife Sue Musati welcomed their boys a couple of years ago joining the list of celebrities with double blessings. There boys are now all grown and keep taking after their dad who happens to be among the most successful DJ’s in the country.

Anne Kiguta

    The photo Anne Kiguta shared to reveal she welcomed twins

She is now a mother of three lovely kids and as much as we know the Citizen TV’s news anchor has been keeping her family on the low. A year ago she shared an adorable photo to announce that she had delivered twins (boy and girl) and though she has never unveiled their faces, there is no doubt they look just like her.

Is president Uhuru’s nephew the father of Anne Kiguta’s twins?

On Father’s Day Citizen TV’s Anne Kiguta shared a video of her eldest daughter playing with Uhuru Kenyatta’s nephew who she also tagged in her Instagram video as she celebrated him on this special day.

The photo Anne Kiguta shared to reveal she welcomed twins

This left many questioning whether he was the man who fathered her twins but since she did not respond, her caption was enough to prove that she was willing to celebrate Jomo Gecaga for being an amazing father to her babies.

Judging from how her eldest daughter was interacting with him looks like they are pretty much close and could be living like a family now.

Anyway, the mum of three has been keeping her life on the low since welcoming her twins (boy and girl) and though she is among the well known media personalities, Anne Kiguta chooses to lay to avoid people unlike most news anchors. Check out her post below;
