Veteran Catherine Kasavuli is one of the media personalities slated to return to her work in Kenya Broadcasting Channel (KBC). The channel has been in a wave of new re- launch that is expected to employ the once iconic personalities back from retirement.
Picture: Badi and Kasavuli.
She first aired news on the channel in the year 1985, when she was 59 years old. Catherine has signed a contract and is set to comeback after a seven-year sabbatical.
The veteran is not the only one expected to comeback. Pauline Sheghu, Badi Mukhsin, Tom mboya, Cynthia Nyamai and Fayaz Kureish are also expected to be back. Many others have made the shortlist and we will be seeing faces from years back, back on our televisions.
They will be anchoring primetime news on weekends while the others will work on weekdays. The current anchors will be working on other news bulletins or take other roles including being news reporters.
Kasavuli has worked for Citizen TV, KBC and KTN. She is also the first female news presenter in the country. Most of these veterans worked for the channel while its name was still Voice Of Kenya ( VOK).
These leaves us with many questions than answers. Our youths have been promised jobs by the government over time but contrary to that old folks are pulled back from retirement to their jobs. A youth is expected to have met certain years of experience but yet they are not given opportunities.
