Who was Catherine Kasavuli?

A news anchor from Kenya was named Catherine Kasauli.

At the Voice of Kenya, afterwards known as KBC, Kasavuli started her career as a radio continuity announcer in 1980.

After hearing her read from the Bible and pray during the meal, her uncle guided her on how to fill out a job application. When that happened, she had just turned 18.

Kasauli would switch to television at the company later in 1985. Kasauli enrolled in the Kenya Institute of Mass Communication after working for two years without professional training.

March 1990 saw Catherine join the founders of KTN, the country’s first privately owned television station. She introduced live broadcasting and altered the pre-recorded format of the channel.

Before leaving KTN in 2007 to join Citizen TV, owned by Royal Media Services, Kasavuli spent 17 years there.

She was a part of the massive exodus that saw several notable news anchors, such as Swaleh Mode and Louis Otieno, leave the TV station run by the Standard Group for Citizen TV.

Later, she held the position of corporate affairs manager at Citizen TV’s parent company, Royal Media Services. To work on a project, Kasavuli stepped away from the spotlight in 2015.

At the end of July 2021, eight years after leaving television, Kasavuli triumphantly returned to Kenyan television screens as the Kenya Broadcasting Corporation’s weekend news anchor (KBC).

Despite being a well-known public personality, the always-smiling, soft-spoken anchor chose to keep her private life a secret, unlike her successors in the Kenyan media sector.
