Why 35-year-old Janet Mbugua has left social media

Former Citizen TV news anchor Janet Mbugua has taken a break from social media.

Though she shared it’s not permanent, the mother of two didn’t reveal when she might be making a comeback.

“It’s been such an incredible week! A lot of it spent online and now it’s time to be present offline, at least for a bit. A huge thank you to you who’ve participated in such key conversations around social issues, particularly on health and gender rights,” she posted on social media. 



“A special thanks to those who’ve signed and shared my petition. Let’s get more signatures on there! The more the voices, the better the progress. I’m bummed that I won’t make it to the Women Deliver Conference in Vancouver this year, due to unavoidable circumstances. For our national champions going, like @nicelengete and @josephinekulea among others, make us proud! To all of you, Happy Madaraka Day 2019, see you all soon!”

Janet might just be taking a rest from her busy schedule which has seen her travel to different parts of the country. She needs the rest.
