Through a post on her blog, she reflected on her 10-year career as a broadcast journalist and thanked all those who made it possible for her
“I’d like to thank Farida Karoney and Wachira Waruru, who have believed in me through and through. 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” said Ms Mbugua.
She however hinted of making a comeback soon.
“Sometimes life forces you to reboot, whether you want to or not. Am I scared? Sure. A little. Anxious? Yes. Excited? Very! Broadcast has not just been my bread and butter, but the Ying to my Yang as far as career goes. My go to. My comfort zone. Stepping out of all that familiarity, albeit momentarily, can shake ones equilibrium a little…but that’s not unusual. But, I’m a closet Life-ist who’s ready to own that. Life is too short. Better to live it absolutely!”
Ms Mbugua announced her resignation on Monday night during the Monday Special bulletin hat she co-hosts with Hussein Mohammed.
