Yesterday she showed that she wasn’t done impressing and inspiring. The mother of 4 debuted a new look.


I don’t mean fashion-wise.

I mean body-wise.

Julie, 45, is happily married to businessman Tony Gichuru and displayed a radically different body to the one we have grown accustomed to the last couple of years.

As you can see above, many celebs like Caroline Mutoko, Victoria Rubadiri, Grace Msalame and Lulu Hassan were left in awe at the feat she had just managed.

Her rapid weight loss reminds me of that of Tanzanian actress Wema Sepetu. Late last year she showed off a much slimmer body, after years of struggling with weight issues.

Some believed that Wema had cosmetic surgery done so she could achieve the look.

Miss Sepetu insisted that her weight loss had been due to eating better and taking appetite suppressors.

Julie’s weight loss will certainly motivate some women to lose some weight…Ama?
