This comes a few days after the mother of two announced that she had taken a break from social media, but did not reveal when she would return.

Quitting Citizen TV

Janet Mbugua’s return to the screens comes about three years after she quit the Royal Media Services-Citizen TV, a place she had called home for more than five years.

In a rather lengthy post on her website, Janet explained that her departure served as time to recuperate and find herself while she worked on her other projects.

The opportunity to have been a Broadcast Journalist for 10 years has been humbling and rewarding, with 5 of those years spent at Citizen TV. For that I’d like to thank Farida Karoney and Wachira Waruru, who have believed in me through and through. I know the moment is right for me to take a sabbatical; breathe, reflect, pursue my passion projects in earnest and spend time with my young family. It’s more ‘see you soon’ than ‘goodbye’” read part of her post.

Kenya Red Cross

The TV personality also took up a job with the Kenya Red Cross Society where she was in charge of Communication and Advocacy.
