Edith Kimani’s career has been on quite the upward trajectory ever since she emerged the winner of KTN’s show The Presenter. She is intelligent and eloquent, all necessary ingredients for success as a woman and indeed a journalist. To top that, she is beautiful. The tri-factor.
The fast-rising news girl parted ways with the Standard Media Group in June 2015 to join Deutsche Welle (DW) as an East African correspondent but seems to have been promoted recently and will be leaving for Germany.
Edith who started her career after winning the first season of KTN’s ‘The Presenter’, took to Twitter on January 5 to break the news to her sea of fans, revealing that she will be making a permanent move to DW’s HQ in Berlin – as a news anchor.
After KTN, she moved on to DWTV (Deutsche Welle) and though she was sad to bid her colleagues farewell, she was excited about the new challenges and experiences that were to be had as she charted her new path.
She found love but also success but it would seem not everyone is happy. Some Germans are upset that she was selected to host the Art show on DWTV. They would have been happier if the show were hosted by one of their own.
