Here are 10 incredible TV characters that Kenyans missed the most

Guess what’s ready to rock you all over again? That’s right, television is finally back, thanks to the TV channels playing mellow this time. The three giants are really back and ready to either keep you busy or boring. Anyway, it depends entirely on the basic TV equipment used. As can be expected, as always, they are poised to restart the boom.

And for the record, the stations went on14. February On Valentine’s Day, of course, no less. You can always trust the government for Valentine’s Day surprises…LOL. Right now, after a few weeks of dismay, deliberation, endless boardroom meetings, and social media cheers, the dinosaurs have decided to hit the airwaves again.

And in the last few weeks of being away, whether we admit it or not, we’ve overlooked quite a few Kenyan TV faces. Even on our social media media, we missed these faces. Big time. Check out the list below, read and act like you didn’t miss it!

1. Larry Madowo

How could we not miss him? Larry is a Kenyan journalist and newscaster specializing in current affairs and technology. It’s just so good that you shouldn’t miss it. Despite the fact that social media always loves to hate him, we can’t help but admit that he was greatly missed for just those few weeks that we haven’t seen him. Larry is one of Kenya’s most ubiquitous television faces having worked for other major networks before working for Kenya’s NTV. He’s loud, lively, active, always-on-the-go, inventive, brash, sassy, ??and seductive, so I just don’t think anyone would step out and say “I never noticed your absence” because he is exactly that what television needs. He was really missed and many are very happy that he doesn’t have to miss him again. And as for his haters, it’s time to pick up your hate wallet and start hating him again.

2. Janet Mbugua

She’s sexy and I know it… and she’s been missing. In addition, their Monday special show, like Gichuru’s Sunday Live, was also one of the most watched Citizen TV news stories. Twitter showed the result every time the show was on. In case you are wondering why she was missing, she basically serves as a sex symbol, especially for millions of thirsty Kenyan men. However, it is also because she is indeed a lovely TV presenter whose beauty brings so much color to so many Kenyan homes. Of course, the icon is on, so enjoy watching!

3. Raila Odinga

Of course, it’s not surprising to see RailaThe list. Well, Raila wasn’t missed because he’s as good a TV presenter or actor anyway, but because Kenyans have nothing to do with politics. You love politics. Granted, no other Kenyan politician has the ability to influence, delight and capture Kenyan audiences better than the enigma himself, Agwambo. He indeed has an attractive and engaging personality and is in fact the reason why Kenyan newspapers are doing sales.

4. Victoria Rubadiri

While I didn’t miss her personally, I have reason to believe that she was missed by many of her admirers since she has so many of them.

5. Mohammed Ali

A TV face affectionately called “Moha” by his legions of Diehards isn’t really your everyday TV face. As such, he is not a frequent TV face and sometimes he can go out for a month or more. Although we don’t get to see the sight of his face every day, like Madowo does, we still miss him. His very important Jicho Pevu segments in their own right are a real delight and we can’t help but talk about them for months. That’s why we just missed this slim, brash kid.

6. Jeff Koinange

Jeff is a Kenyan journalist and talk show host (Jeff Koinange Live) since October 2013 for KTN. From 2001 to 2007 he was the Africa correspondent for CNN and CNN International and from 2007 to December 2012 he was the chief reporter for the television channel K24. Jeff is the absolute TV star as well as a rock star. He really changed television interviews. And let’s not forget that he’s the same one who dramatically threw an iPad into a pool during a LIVE show! He’s also the same for his animated episodes of JKL, stomping on stage with a fire extinguisher for effective melodramatic effect. So tell me why we won’t miss him.

7. Julie Gichuru

Who couldn’t miss the super brilliant, super beautiful, super beautiful, super fashionable, super adorable and super smart TV face? Not to mention their TV hosting experience? You are amazing! Well, the Sunday live show on Citizen TV was one of the most watched news stories before the channels shut down. We have grown to like them deeply and even adore them. She was undoubtedly missed!

8. Shaniqua

She is now the latest sensation on Kenyan television. She stars in the wild celebrity “Jameni” show on KTN, which airs every Thursday. Their antics, mannerisms, street slang and sudden outbursts of comedy at their unfortunate victims really captivated the Kenyans. In fact, many don’t miss the show every Thursday just so they don’t miss the new political/social skits that would be coming. More importantly, they love to see what madness Shaniqua was up to now. She has been positively compared to Tyler Perry’s Medea, and you might even call her the Kenyan Medea! We’re glad you’re back, Shaniqua.

9. Njugush

Kenyan clown with a great sense of humor…who couldn’t miss a character like this? Anyway, Njugush is this slender little clown who is cracking our nerves at this KTN show. REAL HOUSEWIVES FROM KAWANGWARE and also on Hapa Kule. And causes many to love him even more with his very effortless comedic skills. His wildly funny and electrifying comics are truly mind-blowing. The guy is playing puns on himself… man! you are an entertainer Njugush is undoubtedly the reason why we even watch these shows. Honestly, he was missed, wasn’t he?

10. Lilian Muli

Are you wondering why she made the list? We have three good reasons. Firstly, she’s not dated, secondly, she’s got a curvaceous body, and finally, she’s a tabloid. She’s just the girl we all wish we could meet, right? To be honest we missed the sight of her gorgeous body and that’s enough to get her properly on the list.


Aside from the named faces, Kenyans, however, missed the usual unscripted news creators that popped up on our screens every time. Of course, those weirdos who would star in parody performances like Bull’s Eye, Heka Heka , and Truth Gauge. Kenyan missed those normal drunks acting silly in Kiambu… We missed those news that politicians and all their stupid political shenanigans and anecdotes were doing. We missed people like “Jose The Witnesser” who would make us laugh with their very funny eyewitness messages. We’ve missed those sporadic, abrupt jokers and comedians that we’d turn into memes and internet trolls overnight. We missed the madness… The thrill of Kenyan TV. We missed the laughs… From those clueless comics.

Welcome back giants!
