TV personality Janet Mbugua has said one of the reasons she stopped working as a presenter was that her son, Huru could not recognize her as his mummy.
Janet who has worked with Capital FM, Citizen TV among others was speaking during an interview with Betty Kyallo.
‘I was going through a lot when I decided to take a break. I was going through burn out. I also did not have a relationship with Huru.
Yes I would interact with him but the nanny did most of the stuff. There is a day I wanted to hug him but he turned away from me.’
At that moment, Janet knew she had to make changes in her life.
‘He was more familiar with the nanny that he was with me.
For six months I put my projects in order.
I made sure I had projects that would sustain me for two years even if I left TV.’
On marriage, Janet advised,
“Take your time and make sure you are ready. This is because you can be good being in love but you don’t need to be married. Sometimes it’s not easy.”
On friendship she said,
‘I keep my circle of friends small and intimate and that is how I like it.’
