Veteran journalist Catherine Kasavuli reacts to Kamene Goro’s ignorant joke on mental health

There is nothing funny about mental health and although Kenyans on social media will joke about anything; at least the celebrities are expected to act more sensitive when it comes down to such matters.

Well, a few days ago Kiss FM’s Kamene Goro shared one of the most unfunniest memes we have since come to see; and this was on mental health. As seen on the post, Kamene’s meme read;

Mental health na hamna akili

Of course when posting it, Kamene Goro was sure fans would find it funny; only to realize that she was on her own. I mean, many people out here are dealing with money related (which she can’t relate with;) and others facing worse situations; only for Kamene to prove how ignorant she can get.

Kasavuli responds

Well, having come across the various stories highlighting Kamene’s ignorant mental health; the veteran news anchor has also come out to speak.

This is probably because back in her days journalists (whether TV or radio) strictly followed the Media ethics; that teach respect for life and the rule of law and legality.

Speaking about the post, Kasavuli wrote;

Yesterday I literally cried when I saw someone joking about #mentalhealth.

These aren’t things to joke about, until it hints home, it hits so different. Ask me.

Adding;

Lets use our platforms regardless of size to raise positive awareness.


Although no one is perfect… I’m pretty sure back in Kasavuli’s time…journalist weren’t getting hired for their foreign accents like those of today.
