Janet Mbugua reveals she doesn’t mind being around alcohol despite being a teetotaller

Two months ago, Janet Mbugua, an author and philanthropist, revealed that she had been sober for almost two years. She has been getting questions about her life without alcohol and her journey to sobriety.

Mbugua says that she did not have a dangerous drinking habit, but she wanted to quit because she was afraid it could escalate. She used alcohol to cope with stress and bad days.

Mbugua says that she will continue to attend events where alcohol is served, and that she does not condemn people’s choice to drink. She will often be seen at these events with a juice or mocktail in hand.

Mbugua encourages anyone who is struggling with alcohol to reach out for professional help.


Janet Mbugua is sober and has been for almost two years. She quit drinking because she was afraid it could become a problem. She still goes to events where alcohol is served, but she doesn’t drink. She encourages anyone who is struggling with alcohol to get help.

Janet Mbugua Shares Her Journey To Sobriety

Media personality and philanthropist Janet Mbugua recently shared her journey to sobriety, almost two years after quitting alcohol.

Mbugua said that she made the decision to quit alcohol on her own, without any pressure from anyone or anything. She also said that she did not set a deadline for her sobriety, as she wanted to give herself the time and space to heal.

In a candid video on her YouTube channel, Mbugua revealed that she is excited to have reached this meaningful milestone. She also talked about the importance of discipline and self-compassion on the journey to sobriety.

Mbugua said that she refrains from putting unrealistic expectations on herself, as she knows that discipline does not come easy or naturally. She also said that it is important to be patient and kind to yourself during the healing process.

Mbugua’s decision to share her story is an inspiration to others who are struggling with alcohol addiction. Her message of self-compassion and discipline is a reminder that sobriety is a journey, not a destination.

Janet Mbugua Shares Love Poem She Wrote For Ex-Boyfriend 18 Years Ago

Former news anchor Janet Mbugua shared a love poem she wrote for her ex-boyfriend 18 years ago on her Instagram account on August 8.

The poem, which is titled “The End of Us,” is about Janet’s heartbreak and the end of their relationship. She wrote the poem in 2004, after she and her boyfriend broke up.

Janet shared the poem with her followers, saying that she was surprised at how deeply she had been invested in her feelings for her ex-boyfriend 18 years ago.

“Another original poem from my collection. Feels like I’m sharing a super vulnerable piece of me online,” she wrote.

Despite feeling vulnerable, Janet said that she was also excited to share her poetry with her followers. She said that most of her poems are about love, lost love, passion, and relationships.

Janet’s followers were supportive of her decision to share the poem, and they praised her for her honesty and vulnerability.

One follower commented, “Thank you for sharing this beautiful poem. It’s so raw and honest, and it really resonates with me.”

Another follower said, “I’m so glad you shared this poem. It’s beautiful and heartbreaking, and it reminds me of a time in my own life when I was going through a similar heartbreak.”

Janet’s decision to share her poem is a reminder that it is okay to be vulnerable and to share our emotions with others. It is also a reminder that love is a powerful emotion that can both bring us great joy and great pain.

Janet Mbugua shares sweet poem she’d written for her husband Eddie Ndichu

Janet Mbugua is a tireless traveler who uses her platform to raise issues that are important to her.

The first is menstruation. She wants to eradicate the discrimination against girls. She is revealing a very personal thing in the interim.

Janet posted on Instagram about a highly romantic poem she once penned in which she declared her eternal love for an ex-boyfriend. The former Citizen TV presenter is emotional as she remembers the love poetry she has ever written for an ex-lover.

“I found some poetry I wrote, between 2005 and 2007… In fact, the document has over 30 poems! It’s taken me back in time; so many of them are about love, lost love, passion, and relationships…so now I’m trying to think back and figure out who I was then, what I was thinking, dealing with. Who I was with!

This is one of the few I’m posting as I figure out what to do with the rest ???? Don’t laugh! Try not to ???? I was simply expressing myself 🙂 And clearly letting go of lost love!

#mafeelings#poetry#partsofme#love#loss,” she captioned her slight embarrassment.

And the poem was:

Funny I would think that two years ago,

I was the one thing you were certain of.

We were the heart of everything was a flirt,

You were gentle

I was the spoilt one

where you would spend

Funny, we thought we’d stay

Only to throw it all away

Strange that our paths crossed when I was up in arms

You were rational, I’d lost my mind

You were convinced that I was your kind

You talked and charmed me. I looked away

I knew I’d turn back and made you stay

Strange that we stood side by side

Only to find ourselves in this collide

Surreal, so surreal that it’s been two years

You moved on, I moved out, I stood alone, You fell in love

I remember everything

You’ve made it her world

Almost as if we never were

Janet Mbugua discusses her journey raising sons

Janet Mbugua recently travelled to the coast to celebrate her birthday.

She needed some time alone away from her hectic routine because she was burnt out.

“I was dealing with something that was difficult and I didn’t know I was dealing with it, and so what this has allowed me to do is just be comfortable with the fact that vulnerability is actually a strength and it’s good for you. But it took me a long time to kind of put that in my mind.”

She was discussing her journey from the media to being a gender/menstrual rights advocate on the Working Smart and Living Well podcast, which was featured on Agenda Women.

The former media celebrity was dealing with a lot of problems.

“I think the last time I was vulnerable was probably last week around my birthday. I allowed myself for the first time ever to get in touch with myself. Coz I hadn’t had space, parental burnout, this burnout, work burnout, allow yourself two days, it is not the end of the world.

“And then I got vulnerable with myself and you know had to come to that place where emotions were let out, but it was within a space safe space, and it allowed me to be vulnerable because I’m like now you know it’s okay to be vulnerable.”

“They could not stand watching me on TV” Janet Mbugua opens up on how Kenyans bullied & mocked her for being a pregnant news anchor

President Kenyatta himself announced to have quit Twitter following the harsh insults from KoT. Okay, imagine a whole president quitting social media because of cyber bullies – so what do you think a common Mwanainchi would do?

Well because of the same cyber bullying the number of suicidal cases have gone up; that’s because at sometimes some of these experiences end up causing too much damage hence the easy way out….suicide.

Some of the celebrities who have faced cyber bullying include Mulamwah, Boniface Mwangi and Janet Mbugua among others. For this r reason, Janet a Mbugua recently spoke to Aljeezera opening up about her experience with cyber bullies. Bet y’all didn’t know this but – Janet’s first pregnancy was not so easy!

Bullied for being her pregnant

According to Janet Mbugua, most of the people  who picked on her always targeted her pregnancy. For some reason, most felt she didn’t deserve to stand infront of a camera, pregnant and reading news….making it feel like being pregnant is a sin.

  As a news anchor, reporter, presenter, and as a woman on its own, there is always something that will come at you, unfortunately.


Every day it was hateful, spiteful messages saying you are too pregnant to be on TV. Or we can’t stand looking at you when you are reading the news like that.

Having faced the wrath of angry bitter kenyans Janet Mbugua joined Be Kind Online to help fight cyber bullying; and although this is a ‘disease’ that can’t be killed easily – I guess it’s time it was tackled different.

Eddie Ndichu finally denies divorcing Janet Mbugua, but are they still together?

Rumor has had it for a while now that Janet Mbugua and husband, Eddie Ndichu no longer live as man and wife. The Marriage institution being the hardest and struggling field man has ever dealt with – we honestly can’t judge these two – that is if they parted ways.

Eddie Ndichu with wife, Janet Mbugua divorcing?

For about 2 years now we have not the spotted the couple together and after the Ndichu brothers scandal at Ole Sereni – netizens confirmed that Janet Mbugua’s marriage had already drowned; but being a media personality – she had no option but to lay low.

However thanks to Mpasho who recently spoken to a source close to Eddie Ndichu – we’ve learnt that Janet Mbugua and Eddie still remain as man and wife….. on paper that is because they haven’t divorced yet.

Denies divorce rumors

Former journalist Janet Mbugua

From what we know is that the Eddie’s source denied the divorce allegations by getting defensive and demanding to be shown any proof suggesting either Janet or Eddie filed for divorce case.

Even if you go to court, there is no story like that filed. If indeed the story is correct, please give me the details of where you got the story from.

Just him demanding to be told who is spreading story confirms there is indeed a filed divorce case but problem is – there is a leak somewhere.

I mean why else would he ask about the source of the divorce story when he knows journalists do not reveal sources? Ethics.

Anyway responding on whether the couple is still together, Eddie’s source said;

Getting to the details of whether they are married or divorced, that is a matter Eddie and Janet can address. One thing I know is they are not divorced.


Janet Mbugua leaves netizens drooling with never seen before bikini photo, flaunts thick figure (photo)

So it hasn’t been an easy year for former Citizen Tv’s news anchor Janet Mbugua; that is thanks to husband, Eddie Ndichu’s scandal at the Ole Sereni hotel.

However life hasn’t as bad as we thought that is judging from her latest photo where she is seen rocking nothing but a black bikini. Yes, the old ‘covered up’ Janet Mbugua is no longer hiding her curves from fans; as she recently stepped out looking hotter than most of these wannabe socialites on Instagram.

From the photo, we can all agree that Janet Mbugua has become thicker over the years; but the good thing is that her fat always goes to the right places – that is her thighs and the boobs.

Talking about her boobies – did you know Janet Mbugua has a tattoo, no? Well, neither did we.

Janet Mbugua


Captioning the post, the former news anchor wrote;

Love the (beach) bod you’re in because if not you, then who ✨ I’ve got some tales about this December that I’ll come back and share here soon plus an appreciation post for some loved ones next but in the meantime, I really hope y’all are keeping safe and sanitized. COVID19’s vengeance this time around is next level!  Get vaxxed. Get double-vaxxed. Do it now ????????

Mummy with the boys

From the other photos taken from her short trip, we understand that she travelled with her two boys and a female friend who might also be a relative.

Hubby, Eddie Ndichu still remains on the low and has not yet said anything since his case was taken up by the DCI. But having seen him eat life with a big spoon – while Janet Mbugua was home with the boys – looks like karma (or whatever) finally served its justice, no?



Janet Mbugua pours out her heart to eldest son, Huru as he turns 6 years

Janet Mbugua is proud of the far she has come with her two sons, Huru 6 and Mali, 3. Of course it hasn’t been an easy journey for her especially now that we know her marriage to Eddie Ndichu fell apart a while ago and being the mum, that means she has the boys living with her.

Anyway despite the failed marriage, Janet Mbugua continues to focus on her kids and career – which explains why she has been low key for the past few months or rather 2 years.

Janet Mbugua with Baby Huru

However one unique thing about Janet Mbugua is that she rarely parades her kids on social media unless it’s a special occasion hence the latest post dedicated to her sons on their birthday.

All grown up

Through her Instagram page, the yummy mummy marked her eldest son’s 6th birthday with a special message where she wrote;

Huru all grown up

I couldn’t ask for a better, brighter gift,Than two wonderful sons, one of whom today turns six! *(Patting myself on the back for that rhyme!) #Happybirthday Huru.
6 already! God keep you and Mali, always. All ways. For all your days #BabyHuruMilestones #HuruMilestones #HuruAndMali #MotherAndSon #SixAlready #MamaBoys #Godspeed ????????

As her eldest son turns 6 years and the youngest 3 years, Janet Mbugua got to unveil their latest photos and boy have they grown.

Huru and baby Mali

The eldest, Huru already has that American height which means he may have taken after his daddy while baby Mali, well…he must be mummy’s boy.

Former TV girl Janet Mbugua shared her take on the horrific video clip of her husband Eddie Ndichu and his twin brother Paul Ndichu being involved in a fight at Ole Sereni Hotel in Nairobi over the weekend.

While reacting to the drama that befell her husband, Janet condemned the incident while calling upon justice to prevail.

”I am sadden by increasing incidents of Gender-Based Violence. Over the last decade, I have joined my voice to efforts to #EndGBV. I condemn all forms of GBV irrespective of who is involved and will continue to speak out against it. We have laws in Kenya and justice must prevail.”

The viral video shared by activist Boniface Mwangi and blogger Edgar Obare also caught the attention of police boss; Hillary Mutyambai after Netizens urged law enforcers to intervene and bring the two brothers to book; following the weekend incident.

In response to the clip during his engage talk on Twitter, he directed the complainants to make a formal report at the nearest police station for immediate action.

“This incident should be reported to the nearest police station for action,” Mutyambai said.

The unfortunate incident

According to the TV girl, she was suddenly on a drip, sipping not such good liquids, all because she had missed something. She was busy taking care of the world, at the expense of her self care.

“As I write this, I now understand more than ever, the importance of being in tune with your body, something I was doing previously and then I let it slip,” jotted Janet.

A situation that has now forced her to take a break from the daily hustles and the multiple runs, having to now take care of that one person – herself.

“I’ll be back when I’m back ” she wrapped up her post. Barely hours later, messages of comfort, love and kind words flocked her comment section, greatly humbling the mother of two for the sacrifices she had given up for the sake of others that were now costing her own being.

Janet Mbugua hospitalized

Sending back the love: “Thank you all for your incredibly kind messages. God bless, stay safe and please look after yourselves. ????????”

Her battle with anxiety

Her message comes barely days after she did a vlog regards unknown facts about her, mentioning how she spends hours thinking a lot, before admitting that she suffers from anxiety. Something she has been battling for a while and hopes to get over, eventually.

“I think I a lot suffer from anxiety and it’s something I’m trying to work on. Hopefully at some point it will be a lot less than it is now,” she opened up.

Media girl, Janet Mbugua

Quick recovery to her!

6 celebrity media couples who parted ways in sad goodbyes

The media industry has housed multiple outstanding personalities over time, some who had to make exits we never saw coming, others whose chemistry lured fans to tune in to this station or that channel only for the end to come too soon.

Be it on TV, be it on radio, Kenyans have had to witness some of the most unpleasant goodbyes among media couples, leaving wounds that might never get healed unless these duos make major comebacks. Let’s start off:

10 Kenyan celebrity journalists who took to self-employment after years of working with giant media corporates

Cases of retrenchments and mass firings from local media conglomerates almost became the order of the day especially after Coronavirus hit.

It is no longer a new tale in the media industry, a lesson that majority of journalists have since learnt and taken steps on in the event that they face redundancy or even for those that already have.

Citizen TV studios

Once bitten, twice shy. Media professionals have now opted for second, third sources of income to sustain their families and even for financial security. However, for those that opted out of the circle or were forced out by unforeseen circumstances, self-employment has become the route to take for them. Lets get right through it.

1. Betty Kyallo

The sassy celebrity journalist has hopped several times in the media industry especially after her exit from her first home, KTN in 2018, to join rival station K24 where she exited in May 2020. Since then, Betty has been all about her beauty parlor business, Flair by Betty among other partnerships.

2. Maalika Kazia

Late August 2020, the young beauty called it quits at KTN where she had been for the last 2 years in what she termed a new step into a different chapter. The beauty is now into content creation on her YouTube channel ‘Maalika Kazia’ where she mainly talks about her personal life.

Politicians and even colleagues approached me for intimacy – Janet Mbugua opens up

It is not news that Kenyan politicians have an eye for most news anchors especially, the young, sassy and charming ones.

It´s not once, or twice, or even thrice, that such news have made headlines in our local media.

Whether dating them for prospective marriage or just sexual favors in exchange for material wealth, it´s been there.

However, what irks most is fact that these politicians do it regardless of the subject´s marital status.

Some might be married, others already have kids and have started a beautiful, blossoming family, but that has been given a deaf ear by these very politicians.

Renowned Kenyan media personality, Janet Mbugua, opened up on her own experience.


Yes, she was married and having kids already but politicians kept approaching her, from all sides of the divide.

Speaking on Radio Maisha, the mother of two expressed:

I don´t want to sit here and pass judgement but I do believe this is wrong especially if it is somebody who has a family. On principle, it´s wrong but at the same time, it doesn´t mean that that woman should be abused, or harassed, or bullied.


However, the multi-talented personality went ahead to clarify that having made mistakes does not mean these women should be treated with contempt, rather advised accordingly.

It´s  human rights violation. She needs to be educated better kwamba that the choices that she makes will come back and hurt her because the day you are older there will be a youngin and you will be kicked out. You can lose your credibility or even your job, you lose everything.

Sharing her own experience, Mrs Ndichu opened up:

How many politicians, how many colleagues in the media have approached me? So many. Did I say yes? No. Even when I am married and gotten kids. I just used to say point-black that, ¨I have a family. Don´t you think what you are asking is wrong?¨.


Because honestly, actions have consequences.

It´s a choice. I just said that even if they can give me all the money in the world, what will happen to me? There is no credibility I´ll have.

“Is it okay to have sex while menstruating?” Janet Mbugua answers

Former news anchor Janet Mbugua is one open lady who likes to share with her fans on all her social media platforms.

During her latest YouTube episode shared on her channel, Janet Mbugua got to educate those asking whether it was safe to get intimate while on their periods.

According to Janet Mbugua this was one of the most asked question and for this reason had to respond to her follows.

Janet responds

Well, the mother of two says there is nothing wrong with having sex when a lady is on her periods; but there are a few precautions people should take.

The lady opened up saying;

“I don’t think there’s anything wrong, I just think you have to take certain precautions, you have to have a towel, you have to make sure that you’ve covered the sheets I guess. Some people find it very messy but I don’t there is anything wrong per say in terms of is it a health risk etc. Just take precautions is what I would say and here is another thing I would say, have your partner wear a latex condom if possible. It will protect against pregnancy and STIs,”

There you have it!

Former Citizen TV Journalist, Janet Mbugua set to make TV comeback on rival station

Veteran journalist, Janet Mbugua makes TV comeback on rival station after calling it quits from Citizen TV for a while now.

Early today, rival station, NTV announced their newest employee via social media who is none other than Janet Mbugua captioning:

It’s time for a different voice…

NTV reveals that the former Citizen TV journalist will be hosting ¨Here and Now¨ show, set to air every Thursday.

The thrilled mother of 2 also shares this on her social media expressing:

So this is happening! I’m back on TV! With , on Thursdays…

The butterflies in my stomach are REAL, but so is my excitement!


Funny enough, she is both excited but a little shaken to be back, being anxious to make a comeback to her first love.

Not so long ago, soon after exciting Citizen TV in 2017 for a couple of reasons, did the articulate journalist reveal her love and passion for news anchoring.

The opportunity to have been a Broadcast Journalist for 10 years has been humbling and rewarding, with 5 of those years spent at Citizen TV.

I know the moment is right for me to take a sabbatical; breathe, reflect, pursue my passion projects in earnest and spend time with my young family.

It’s more ‘see you soon’ than ‘goodbye’.

She cited it all as a blessing in her life.


The renowned personality might have sent a signal just recently after being part of a panel discussion on Citizen TV talking about the negative effects of smartphones.

Sure enough, as the hosts, Trevor Ombija and Waihiga Mwaura were prepping for a short break, they actually offered Janet the opportunity instead, one she actually slayed.


It is evident that the beauty´s anchoring skills are as fresh as her old days on camera and will therefore not be a disappointment.


Netizens quickly congratulated the media personality, expressing their eagerness to listen to her on NTV.

Janet this is the moment we were waiting for,

you are such an inspiration to us the young people with ambition of being journalists, dope and all the best Janet#role model


Finally the wait is over


It is indeed time for a different voice. Welcome back Janet

Renowned Journalist, Janet Mbugua opens up on what actually pushed her to share her motherhood journey

Renowned Kenyan media personality, Janet Mbugua opens up that negative trolls on social media actually thrust her to share her motherhood journey, publicly.


Mean comments like:

You look disgusting.

You shouldn´t be on TV when pregnant.

You are wearing a dress that is suffocating your unborn child.

These were the trend on her social media pages and she decided enough is enough.

Janet was an angry lioness that had been poked and decided to rise like the Queen she is.

She asked one of her critics:

So what about being pregnant?

How did you come into the world?

Don´t you know you are insulting your mum?

Instead of backlash from fans, they actually turned the tables and applauded the TV siren who then bounced back and shared her motherhood journey.


This journey was shared to a myriad of women from across her social media platform and hasn´t looked back ever since.

However, this that was just but the tip of an iceberg when it came to negative trolls.

She returns to work after giving birth and her boss gives them a stern warning about getting pregnant.

Janet Mbugua recalls several incidences where her boss would be so mean, always jeering at women but she could not stand it.

This is how the endometriosis warrior is now involved in couple of initiatives that stand up for women, even for their maternal health.

Groomyard Barbershop is now open! Janet Mbugua’s twin brother opens his barbershop after quitting employment (Photos)

Timothy Mbugua quit his job sometimes last year to start his own business. It took him months to open his barbershop but now he’s open for business.

Speaking during an interview with Nation in November 2018, Timothy said that he decided to quit employment after realizing he was putting great effort and work on someone else’s brand.

“I spent between 12-15 hours a day working, I figured that working on my own brand for that long made more sense than putting in all that effort to build someone else’s brand. I decided to step out of my field, design and advertising, and try something new, different and fresh,” said Timothy.

Inside view

Timothy’s barbershop – Groomyard Barbershop is located on Dennis Pritt Road, Kilimani. It’s an high-end barbershop, its location just tells you the kind of customers Timothy is targeting.

See photos of the barbershop below:






Janet Mbugua TOTALLY loses her cool…savagely fires at incoming New York Times bureau chief for East Africa

The New York Times has published some disturbing photos of people who were killed at the Ducit D2 Hotel at 14 Riverside Drive.

The horrid photo, on New York Times article titled ‘Shabab Claim Responsibility for Deadly Assault on Nairobi Hotel-Office Complex’, shows bodies of at least three people inside the Secret Garden Café.

Incoming New York Times bureau chief for East Africa Kimiko de Freytas-Tamura has been at the receiving end of Kenyans’ anger.
