The twins will replace the late Badi Muhsin who died on October 8, 2021, after a short sickness.
They will present the 'Dira Ya Magwiji' bulletin which airs on Saturdays at 7pm, alternating with Pauline Sheghu. Previously, Jamila served at NTV, hosting The Property Show, while her twin sister Wanjiru was a communication and marketing consultant at Diamond Media.
Between the years 2006 - 2008, Wanjiru served as a business news anchor at KBC.
Then again, Jamila was a host at K24 TV in 2015 before joining Nation Media Group. She hosted Faraja show at the Mediamax-owned station.
The national telecaster re-launched in June 2021, spending millions to bring back veteran news anchors and revamp its studios. KBC Editor-in-Chief, Samuel Maina, affirmed that the changes were informed by the changing landscape in the media industry.
"The market has been longing for these anchors. The corporation chose to offer them a chance to deliver our products to Kenyans. They are likewise very experienced and will also be training our upcoming news anchors to sharpen their anchoring skills.
"(KBC has) invested a lot in hardware and software, a modern television anchoring set, and as such we will completely begin broadcasting on High-Definition technology unlike before where we used to combine HD and SD. Its big-time for us, he expressed.
Some of the people who made a return incorporate Catherine Kasavuli, Pauline Sheghu, Harith Salim, Tom Mboya, Cynthia Nyamai, Fayaz Kureish, and Topi Lyambila among others.
