Adding a touch of humor, Mijungu shared a funny anecdote from their time on set together, reminiscing about the time Rubadiri mispronounced his name as “MenKijungu” instead of Ken Mijungu during a live broadcast.

“Hang in there!” Kenyans hilariously console Ken Mijungu after thugs sweep his house clean a second time

Ken Mijungu is an angry man after witnessing burglary at his home on two consecutive occasions, the first incident was a subtle move but the second time, thugs swept his house clean!

Having just lost his NTV job and trying to find his niche in the legal space, in the face of dark times due to Covid-19, Kenyans are at the least bit impressed by such kind of inhumanity.

Media personality, Ken Mijungu

Taking to social media, a dear Mijungu penned:

Lightning don’t strike twice but thieves do, so the first time they broke my reinforced glass window with a sledge hummer or equivalent, carted away all electronics.

Same time, same place, they return but this time, bigger and “better”.

Weeks later they came with a pick-up, or Canter truck and carried away everything else, even ripped curtains off!

This did not leave no shallow wound in Ken Mijungu who is currently counting losses with rooms empty you’d think he’d just relocated.

Others took it on a light note.

Boss Moves! Ken Mijungu reveals his next big project after he was fired from NTV

Ken Mijungu was unfortunately among the fired news anchors from NTV Kenya. The journalist then confirmed rumors about his exit from the station in a post shared on his social media pages.

He went on to thank everyone he had been working with a post where he wrote:

The axe fell @NTVnewsroom and I was on its way. 7 years in those corridors summed up in a two-page letter of termination. We live to fight another day. Thanks to God, He remains the greatest, thank you @ntvkenya for the opportunity and thank you for always staying tuned.

Ken Mijungu fired

However unlike some of his colleagues, Ken Mijungu already had a plan B that will not see him go broke in a few months; or even years, that is if he is now venturing into law permanently.

Law firm

As seen on his latest post, it appears that the former NTV news anchor is now planning to join his law firm identified as Ken Mijungu Legal Consultancy; The firm will not only deal with Immigration, Finance, Property, imports and Exports but any legal matter a client has.

He accompanied his post with a short caption from the scriptures where he wrote;

Ken Mijungu’s law firm

Believers will always be believers Matthew 6: 26-34

Ken Mijungu and Dennis Okari

Although he remains best friends with Dennis Okari; the sad part is that these two will no longer be working together like before.

Rumor has it that these two men also started attending the same church and since then, they have become closer than ever.

This was proven by Mijungu who came out to bash Betty Kyallo for not appreciating Dennis Okari on her post; where she talked about Ivanna’s health scare back in 2019.

According to Ken Mijungu Betty and her family should have acknowledged Dennis Okari’s presence at the hospital; instead of making him look like a deadbeat dad.

Ken Mijungu fired by NTV

NTV news anchor Ken Mijungu is among the 50 Nation Media Group (NMG) employees who have been sent home in a move that was necessitated as a result of the decline in revenues due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

In a Twitter post, Mijungu, who is a trained lawyer, thanked  NMG for giving him an opportunity to work at NTV, he also showed his gratitude to his fans and supporters for always staying tuned.

Ken Mijungu

He was, however, shocked that his 7 years of service to the media house was summed up in a two-page termination letter that was handed to him earlier today.

Earlier this week, NMG sent out a circular to its staff that stated that the media house will be realigning its business and gravitating towards a digital strategy.

“It is an extremely difficult decision in view of the prevailing circumstances and we understand the impact this will have on those affected and their families. The exercise will be carried out with utmost respect to our affected colleagues and in adherence to the Kenyan labour laws,” the statement reads.

The layoff comes at a time when most media houses are downsizing to survive the COVID-19 pandemic disruption. About a fortnight ago, Mediamax sent home nearly 100 employees while Royal Media Services sent home about 50 staff.

“That Somali guy took care of the baby in absence of her biological father!” Mercy Kyallo claps back after Ken Mijungu’s tribal statement against her sister’s new man

The Kyallo’s are quite disappointed with Ken Mijungu and Dennis Okari’s latest move on Betty Kyallo.

Apparently Ken Mijungu decided to call out Betty Kyallo for not giving her ex, Dennis Okari any credit in her latest post where she opened up about her daughter’s condition that saw her get admitted at the ICU for one month.

In the post, Betty Kyallo narrated how she faced a tough year but all in all was grateful to have made it this far. However turns out that Ken Mijungu felt that Betty Kyallo should have at least thanked Dennis Okari and his wife who also joined them at the hospital and even contributed some money to baby Ivanna’s hospital bill.

Shame on you Ken Mijungu

In his post, Mijungu also happened to mention about Betty Kyallo’s new lover – a statement that very many Kenyans viewed as tribal!

Betty’s sister on the other hand refused to stay quite as she opted to respond to Mijungu’s post. According to Mercy Kyallo….the so called ‘Somali guy’ has actually been playing the role of a good father to baby Ivanna!

According to her, the Somali guy has proven to be more of a father to Betty’s daughter than Dennis Okari will ever be!

“They stole from me and now want to kill me to cover it up” NTV’s Ken Mijungu cries out

Ken Mijungu has once again found himself in precarious situation. The NTV anchor was recently being pursued by police together with his colleague Larry Madowo and his boss Linus Kaikai.

The three moved to court to block police for arresting them over their comments about government crackdown on media. Just when Mijungu thought he was out of the woods, two people start ‘hunting’ him.

The NTV anchor has raised alarm about two men he says are out to kill him. Mijungu exposed the faces of the assassins on his twitter handle.

“The two crooks who want to kill me Delano Longwe Kiilu of phone numbers 0712044555, 0727934001 and Saleh Wachuli Mung’ang’a of phone numbers 0724341808 and 0724726514,” Ken Mijungu tweeted.

They want to silence me

Mijungu says the two men together with other accomplices stole from him. He explains that they want him dead so that they can cover their crimes.

“Good people two days ago i asked you to help me inform some people here to call me, Thank you for your inboxes and contacts. They did and i have since gathered more about them. They masquerade as professionals, they are white collar thugs. Emotionless, empty souls who will see you go to your grave and feel nothing. Together with West European Group S.A.R.L
Weng Fu Limited, West European Group S.A.R.L, Coast Development Authority, Kwale County Government they have conspired to kill me. The man behind this is one Delano Longwe Kiilu of phone numbers 0712044555, 0727934001 and Saleh Wachuli Mung’ang’a of phone numbers 0724341808 and 0724726514. Through their fictitious company shelter Solution limited, they stole from me and now want to kill me to cover it up. If i wake up tomorrow, i will post all the messages, voice recordings and Whatsapp chats. In the meantime call them and plead for my life if you can. Thank you,” Ken Mijungu explained.


Human right groups stop police from arresting Larry Madowo, Linus Kaikai and Ken Mijungu

Last evening plainclothes officers were at Nation Center to arrest Larry Madowo, Linus Kaikai and Ken Mijungu. News about the impending arrests sent panic within media circle.

NTV and several NMG journalists sounded the alarm about the impending arrests on social media. Apparently police were right outside Nation center waiting for the three to come out.

Linus Kaikai was to be apprehended over his statement that the government is muzzling the media. Larry Madowo and Ken Mijungu were also being sought for openly speaking about government shutdown of NTV and Citizen TV.

Human right groups spring to action

Human rights crusaders and journalists rushed to Nation Center after word went round that police were waiting to arrest Kaikai, Madowo and Mijungu.

The presence of human rights groups and journalists stopped the police from making the arrests. The shutdown of the TV stations has sparked fears the government is rolling back media freedom.


NTV’s Ken Mijungu responds to claims he’s being targeted because he’s from Migori County

Ken Mijungu has been warned that he’s being targeted for doing his job. The NTV anchor learnt that he was a target through social media posts.

Kenya has been divided between two political affiliations. You are either Nasa or Jubilee because currently there is nothing like being neutral.

Even some journalists have openly picked sides. Journalists who to try to be neutral are being trolled and threatened based on their ethnicity or who between Raila or Uhuru people think they support.

All I do is my work

Ken Mijungu has found himself in an awkward situation for being neutral. The NTV anchor was recently trolled after it was established that he hails from Migori County. Some people however says Mijungu is being threatened because he is openly challenging the system.

Mijungu says he doesn’t understand why anyone would target him. He states that he would challenge anyone for the truth because that’s what matters to him.

“I don’t know why someone would think I am targeted and bring it to my attention. All I do is my work, I don’t entertain mediocrity on my shows and I call anyone exhibiting such out. I think that is what our viewers want. For me it’s not his Side and the other side. It’s the true side. On being targeted I believe only God offers true protection to us and to me,” Ken Mijungu said.



NTV anchor Ken Mijungu threatens to resign within 7 days if his demands are not met

On Sunday 8th October 2017 will be a moment of truth as NTV anchor Ken Mijungu will either resign from his job or turn a blind eye to his promise.

Mijungu threatened to resign if the Inspector General of Police Joseph Boinnet does not take action against General Service Unit (GSU) who raided University of Nairobi hostels and clobbered students protesting the rearrest of Embakasi East MP Babu Owino.

On Thursday September 28th anti-riot police stormed into University of Nairobi hostels and harassed and senselessly beat up students. Several videos surfaced online showing police police frogmarching, beating and generally harassing students.

Mijungu’s threat came before Boinnet was interviewed on NTV by Linus Kaikai on Sunday October 1st and denied that there was police brutality in the service.

“As a Kenyan citizen I am taking a moral high ground on police brutality. After watching several of the video especially of the police tear gassing students in their hostel, I am asking the IG Boinnet to take action on the police within 7 days, arrest and prosecute. If he doesn’t I will resign. There is no moral obligation to continue reporting on the same thing time and again without translating to something. It’s useless and frustrating,” wrote Mijungu on social media.

Another victim was NTV Swahili editor Francis Mutegi, his car was also clamped despite bearing a sticker indicating that it’s driven by a person with disability. Persons with disability are allowed to park anywhere in the city centre.
