Sad day as broadcaster Njoki Ndegwa of Jambo Radio passes away in Dallas, Texas

Published

on

Popular Diaspora Radio show host Njoki Wa Ndegwa is Dead. Ms Ndegwa, one of Kenya Diaspora pioneer  Radio show hosts and the proprietor  of Jambo Radio Network (formerly Jambo Boston Radio) passed away Friday in Dallas, Texas.

“It is true she has passed on,” a family member who spoke to this reporter Friday evening said. “We thought we were ready for any eventuality but I guess nobody is really ever ready for death…I can tell you the news of her passing has shattered me and the rest of the family,” she added.

Njoki had been ill for some time, having being diagnosed with breast  cancer in 2014. Later in  October 2016, doctors told her that she had Metastatic Brain Tumors, following which she underwent treatment and several surgeries at Parklands  Hospital in Texas.

In September 2017, she lost her voice and mobility  due to aggressive Metastatic Brain Tumors.

Njoki  Wa Ndegwa required Chemotherapy,  24 hour bedside homecare services,  rent, medical supplies and specialized breathing machine.

Two weeks ago, friends, family and well wishers got together for a well attended fundraiser in Texas. Another harambee had been scheduled for this Sunday at Ushindi Church in Lowell, Massachusetts. It was in Boston, MA, that  she initially set up her broadcasting station.

As soon as the news of her death broke, her family, friends, Kenyans in US and fans from around the world took to social media to express shock and disbelief.

Before coming to the U.S., Ms Ndegwa was a successful radio personality in Kenya, working for popular radio station which broadcasts in Kikuyu language, Kameme FM .

Once here, she thought she’d be a nurse, but quickly discovered her future wasn’t in medicine, choosing instead to follow the path she knew best…broadcasting.

Her friends urged her to go back to Kenya and resume her successful radio career at Kameme FM, but Ndegwa thought, “why not be a Kenyan radio host in Boston?”

The station did well but she later moved to Texas where she set up her equipment and continued with what she did best; connect people through her radio shows. This she did until she got ill.

 

Watch a BBC documentary focusing on Njoki’s work as a radio presenter:

On Friday night, Timothy Ndegwa, the CEO of Mykenyanlink Network, a close friend to the deceased wrote on Facebook: It’s a sad day at
#JamboRadioNetwork

I remember this day vividly. The last photo we took in Atlanta on June 18th 2017 around noon. The last time I saw you standing on your feet. Three months later you were bed riden never to walk again. Several times I visited with you in the hospital and at home. You struggled but stayed strong. We communicated through gestures. The smiles and noding were affirming. I am honored to have been a partner with you at Jambo Radio Network.
May your soul rest in peace.

Jane Njenga: It’s unbelievable, very sad.
John Wachori: Iguru ria maundu mothe Ngai Ithe Witu ni mwega. Na eekaga uria we onete ati niwega. We bless His Holy Name.

Confusion as Raila re-edits his Twitter Bio 4 times within 12 hours

Published

It seems Nasa leader Raila Odinga also has difficulties making up his mind – at least on who exactly he is to his Twitter followers.

Mr Odinga has edited his Twitter bio at least four times since his ‘swearing-in’ at Uhuru Park in Nairobi on Tuesday afternoon.

Minutes after the event, he changed his bio to read “President of the Republic of Kenya.” This did not last long as he risked losing his verification badge.

Twitter rules lists “intentionally misleading people on Twitter by changing one’s display name or bio” as one of the reasons users can lose the cherished badge.

Hours later, he altered the bio to read: “This is the official account of His Excellency Raila Amolo Odinga, leader of the Nasa coalition in Kenya.”

He still was not done.

The former Prime Minister changed his bio late in the night to read: “This is the official account of His Excellency Raila Amolo Odinga. Sworn in as the People’s President on 30/1/2018.”

Kumbaff!!! Jeff Koinange responds to claims that Lilian Muli is carrying his baby

Published

on

The speeches of former President Mwai Kibaki were always filled with memorable funny off the cuff remarks such as Mavi ya kuku, Kubaff, Bure kabisa and Hakuna haja.

These phrases albeit not in the mainstream caught steam once again yesterday after popular TV personality Jeff Koinange clapped back at a troll in style to a mention that he allegedly impregnated fellow Citizen TV anchor Lilian Muli.

 Smoking in a one word response, Koinange responded with “KUMBAAAAAFFFFFFFFFFF!!!!!!!” to the amusement of his over 1.2 million followers.

It all started after one Babu Mmoja claimed that Koinange was the father of Muli’s second baby, a position that seemingly did not sit down well with the Hot 96 radio host.

Lilian Muli is pregnant according to a reliable source close to the sassy TV queen. She is keeping all the details on the matter under wraps and has a son Joshua Munene from her previous marriage.

Jeff Koinange on the other hand also has a son, Jamal Mbiyu Koinange, and is married to Shaila Koinange, a Kenyan of Asian origin.
