Mike Njenga is a Kenyan reporter who has worked for the biggest media house in the country. His journey to becoming a well-known face on Kenya’s screens was not an easy one. At one moment, he was so broke to the point of embarrassment. In an interview, he once recalled how a priest made hurting remarks on him because of his dire situation. So hurtful were the remarks that he has not failed that humiliation to date.
“Some years back, I was performing at a certain church. I used to do sound for that distinct church and sometimes would sleep at city hall on days we held meetings there. I was extremely broke. One Sunday, I went & borrowed open shoes from my cousin. I did not have money to buy shoe shine. So, I used a sponge soaked in water to wipe the dust from the shoes,” he narrated.

The news commentator then went on to narrate how the pastor called him and other ministers and switched out at them for not dressing properly while on the pulpit. He went on to say that some of them were wearing open shoes as if they were on the shore. What hurt more was that he had borrowed the funds to go to church that day and it was not his wish to dress badly, he just didn’t have the money.

Anyway, the reporter has come a long way since then and many know him for his news offering skills. His flow with words, demure & overall style has made him a beauty of many Kenyans.
