Yes! It came as a surprise to many. Well, we called Awinja for a comment, and the ever smiling and funny actress did not hesitate to answer. We all know that pregnancies are basically eventful and many women go through a harrowing experience during pregnancy. Also, apart from mood swings and weird cravings, there are those whose pregnancy takes a toll on their health but for Awinja, she hasn’t experienced such.

“I’m one of those lucky women. I haven’t experienced any morning sickness. I don’t have cravings when it comes to food, I eat anything. I have had the easiest pregnancy so far.”


The radio presenter whose show on Qwetu Radio is ruling the airwaves is 6 months pregnant and she says that she is really looking forward to having the baby. She is excited.

“I will leave it to the child to decide when he/she gets older.” 


Pregnancy is not going to affect Awinja’s career. They shoot a lot of episodes which will run when she is on maternity leave, she will be on TV and that’s why you won’t miss her.

“It is official.”
