Celebrated media personality Janet Mbugua is returning to the screen with an all-new show on NTV.

Her return comes two years after she called it quits at Citizen TV.

Janet told Nairobi News in an exclusive that despite working as an anchor for a decade, she is still jittery.

“I am so jittery and that shows that I care about the product. A mentor once told me, the day you stop being nervous you should be worried,” she said.

NTV Production Manager Mercelline Maroma told Nairobi News that the new show dubbed, “Here and Now”, will be centered on the youth and will tackle social, economic and political issues they are facing.

GIVE YOUTH A VOICE

“We want to give the youth a voice and have a sober conversation on what is going on in their lives,” said Ms Maroma.

Here and Now” will start airing next week on Thursday night and it will have the host and a panel discussing various issues affecting the youth.

Ms Mbugua, who runs her own YouTube channel where she shares details of her life with her fan base of more than 30,000 subscribers, disclosed in 2017 that she took a break from TV to spend time with her young family.

She has been the ambassador of  the ‘Help A Child Reach 5’ campaign sponsored by Lifebuoy. She is also the founder of Inua Dada Foundation.

A Chilean military plane board 38 individuals is reported to have gone missing just after takeoff from the country’s south for a station in Antarctica. It is believed to have crashed.

Crew members aboard C-130 were seventeen, and the others were passengers.

Chile air force statement on Tuesday added: “all national and international air and maritime means available in the area are continuing the search (for survivors) in the sector where communications were lost with the aircraft.”

The aircraft lost contact about over an hour after taking off. The plane took off Monday at 4.55 pm (19:55 GMT) from an airbase in Punta Arenas in Chile’s far south and contact was lost at 6.13 pm.

The onboard members were to sort logistical support roles at Chile’s Eduardo Frei Antarctic base — the country’s largest, the Air Force said.

The crew was as well being flown to examine the base’s floating fuel supply pipeline and carry out any anti-corrosive measures at the facility.

“The plane did have a satellite positioning system, but it did not appear to be working during the early morning search, “said Eduardo Mosqueira, Commander of the Fourth Air Brigade.

President Sebastian Pinera’s country has been facing severe civil unrest in decades. He said in a tweet, he would fly to the southern city of Punta Arenas with Interior Minister Gonzalo Blumel.

This is the latest occurrence in the country.
