Popular Kikuyu Radio Presenter Njogu Wa Njoroge Joins Ruto's UDA Camp
Popular Gikuyu vernacular radio presenter Njogu Wa Njoroge, has joined Deputy President William Ruto's United Democratic Alliance (UDA).
The renowned media personality, who has declared his interest in the Nakuru Senatorial seat, was unveiled on Thursday, January 20.
Ruto's allies lauded Njoroge for the move and wished him the best in his political career.
"Kazi ni kazi Njogu Wa Njoroge. You are a great and highly talented son of Rurii. Wishing you the best in your political endeavours. Karibu sana bro," Kiharu Member of Parliament, Ndindi Nyoro, wrote.
"Njogu Wa Njoroge, welcome to The Hustler Nation. May your dream to join Parliament come true," Dennis Itumbi stated.
After joining Kameme FM from KBC in the 2000s, Njogu rose from a sports presenter to a morning show host before joining Royal Media Services' Inooro FM in 2006.
Njogu survived a purge by Mediamax Limited Network in October 2019 when Kameme TV retrenched most of its employees.
He later tendered his resignation and was hired back for the radio channel, a station he is most familiar with.
He then rejoined Kameme FM a few years later and exited again for Gukena FM, owned by Radio Africa Group, in 2014.
Njoroge quit Gukena FM for Kameme FM in 2019 and later joined Kameme TV, which is also owned by Mediamax.
So far, at least six media personalities have expressed their desire to vie for political seats in the upcoming General Election.
