Prior to their appointment, Jamila hosted the Property show on NTV while Wanjiru worked as a communications consultant at Diamond Media.
The twins will replace experienced Kiswahili presenter Bahdi Muhsin, who died on October 8, 2021.
Bahdi made a comeback in the Kenyan media world in June 2021, when KBC changed its name, after a 19-year hiatus. He retired in 2002 after serving for nearly three decades at the broadcaster.
The 67-year-old was killed when he traveled to the coastal region for an interview for Dira ya Magwiji.
According to his brother Hafidh Muhsin, despite the bad weather, Bahdi was doing well when the couple had lunch on the day in question before going to their room to rest. He was unfortunately found dead shortly after.
During his long service in the Kenyan media, Bahdi was awarded the Order of the Great Warrior (OGW) by retired President Mwai Kibaki in 2011. Great Swahili author Wallah Bin Wallah also recognized Bahdi as one of the best country's Swahili news presenters.
