Family and Background

Anne Kiguta is the last born in a household of four girls, but she was not spoiled as her elder sister did not authorize it. She enjoyed growing up with her sisters and would frequently raid Sophie’s (the third born sister) wardrobe for clothes to slay in invariant if they were baggy. The prominent journalist was very aggressive, which got her into a lot of trouble with her senior sisters. However, raising with them was fun; the elder sister urged her to pursue academics aggressively, the second born is very keen on points, and she borrowed this from her. The third born is very charismatic and understands how to relate to people, and she respects this about her. Her family was staunch Christians who did a lot of philanthropy work, making Anne want to be a lawyer.

Her dad was an accountant, and she credits her dad for standing as her role model in spans of hard work and work ethic. Rising was a tomboy, but her preferred career path pushed her to dress like a professional. She still favors rugged jeans and comfortable clothes. Anne believes in God and accomplishes not understanding how some people don’t. However, she is not a regular churchgoer and prefers small fellowships to big church masses.

Marriage

The TV siren has never been wedded, but she was once engaged to Michael Ngunyi, a dealing and advertising guru. Unfortunately, word out there is that she caught her lover cheating and had to bust off the engagement.

However, Anne admits that she was in an abusive relationship but determined to stay for a while because of her daughter. Her spouse would beat her even in front of their daughter. He whipped her when she was almost to show up live on television at one time. The beating did not stop her from moving to work; instead, she hid the proof with the help of makeup. When the loss continued, she decided enough and left without a backward glimpse. This was the best decision she ever made, according to her.

She was gossiped about having an affair with Jomo Gecaga, President Uhuru’s nephew and private assistant. Speculation began when the two appeared for a film screening in 2015 hand in hand. During Father’s day, Anne published a video of Jomo and her daughter having a great bonding session and hoped him a great Father’s Day. Shortly afterward, she deleted the footage raising eyebrows among numerous fans and entertainment columnists. Everyone was wondering if they had broken up. It is thought that Jomo Gecaga is the father to her twins, a boy, and a girl. In addition, she is a mom to three children.

Career

The TV siren began her career at the age of 18. She then decided to try her luck at a newly started church Radio station and luckily got the job.

She undertook audience research for the station selection of its primary audience and pioneered the establishment of beautiful schedules that air to date.
