Some Kenyans believe that in this day and age, female TV anchors who are curvy and beautiful are being favored over those who are less “blessed” regardless of their skill and education.
Popular lawyer Ahmednassir Abdullahi who is known to speak his mind, seemed to fall in this section.
According to the well-paid lawyer, TV stations in the past had women who were beautiful but still had brains, now, he believes, they are just curvy and beautiful.
“We have many professional ladies for (instance) Anne Soy, Beatrice Marshall, Sophie Ikenye, Catherine Wambua, with foreign media and judged on their professionalism while our local TV girls seem to be hired on the size of their bosom and beauty,” he said Twitter.
Ahmednassir’s sentiments were led by an interview he watched of renown journalist Catherine Wambua Soi who works with Al-Jazeera. According to the lawyer Soi understands her work.
