Media personality Janet Mbugua recently revealed that she was sexually harassed on several occasions while she was working as a journalist.
Speaking during an interview with Radio Maisha’s Esther Mwende, the former Citizen TV news anchor recounted how some of her colleagues and former politicians would often ask for sexual favours.
The mother of two explained that some of the people who approached her were aware that she was married and had children but that was not enough to stop them from satisfying their sexual desires.
However, Janet – who resigned from Citizen TV in April 2017 – often turned down their advances by telling them to their faces that it was not possible.
“How many politicians, how many colleagues in the media have approached me? So many. Did I say yes? No. Even when I was married and had kids they approached me. I just used to say point-black that I have a family,” she explained.
Janet went on to add that she was not ready to fatten her pockets and destroy her marriage and family as a result of her actions.
“It’s a choice. I just said that even if they can give me all the money in the world, what will happen to me? There is no credibility I’ll have,” she added.
