@Jack254__: Citizen TV should give Kimani Mbugua a second chance he used to be an awesome reporter alfu Vijana let's stay away from drugs it's never a happy ending

@kevinFult....The story of Kimani Mbugua, a promising journalist who rose to the limelight at 19, is one sad tale.

Imagine living the best years of your career at a young age, only to be pushed into drug abuse, which ultimately leads you down a destructive path, robbing you of your career and diluting your stardom. It's a very painful journey 💔

I just hope he gets the help he needs, and that his stars will align again. 🙏

@marion_peter10...Trust me, if he is given another chance he will do wonders to his career. He has learned enough.

@Kwashkwaroz_...I hope life gives him a second chance. He deserves it

@real_ag7.....I know this champ from way back in his time at MU Radio, winning the Campus Vibe challenge by then Nation Radio!

Man was destined for greatness but drugs ruined him, such a sad life bana.
