Makena Njeri , the Bold Network Africa Founder has changed name.
The former BBC Journalist has changed her name to read Chris Muriithi.
She also identifies with the pronoun ‘They/Them.’
They/Them is a term used by LGBTQ people as a gender neutral pronoun.
It not clear if Makena is honouring someone by changing the name or she actually wants to be referred to as Chris Muriithi.
The media personality came out as a member of the LGBTIQ+ community in May 2021.
Appearing on TedX, Chris disclosed that it had taken years for they to accept and admit the fact to who they are.
“I remember for the first time in my life after very many years, I looked at the mirror and said to myself ‘I am gay, I am unique and this is my truth’,” Chris said.
