  • Renowned news anchor Ken Mijungu unveiled his law consultancy firm and opened up on his plans three days after being axed from NTV.

    Speaking to Kenyans.co.ke, Mijungu detailed some of the ventures he is aiming to shift his focus on after he was relieved of his duties at Nation Media Group.

    Mijungu revealed that he started the Ken Mijungu Legal Law Consultancy firm back in 2015 but took to Instagram to 'unveil' it and plans to concentrate on it before making a comeback on the screens.

    The firm offers consultancy services to Kenyans on buying and selling property, immigration, imports and exports of goods.

    "For lawyers apart from going to court there is a number of things we do, the firm can advise on conveyancing, how to go about it, I also advise on finance, immigration like the documents needed to travel.

    "I have also been doing imports and exports, if for example, someone wants to export vegetables or fruits to China or the UK, I advise on what documents you need and how to obtain them," explained the anchor.

    A number of media houses have also been courting Mijungu since his NTV exit on Friday, July 3, as he revealed that two mainstream companies have approached him.

    His love and passion for media will see him return to the industry should he get a lucrative offer on the table as he believes his race is not finished yet, he reveals. 

    The CNN African Journalist Awards Special Commendation 2011 awardee is also aiming to focus on his executive car hire business Execar-tive CarHire that he started in 2010.

    "The business just deals with luxury brands which I have been doing since 2010, took a break and resumed in 2013, I also do imports on behalf of buyers.

    "I have one V8 (Land Crusier), one Range Rover, One S-Class and E-Class (Mercedes) but if you need five for your wedding I can talk to (Dr.) Kingori who owns two luxury cars," he noted.

    Mijungu stated that he was overwhelmed by the positive messages he received since his firing but noted that being prepared with side hustles has made him handle the redundancy better.

    With journalists maximising the potential of digital platforms, Mijungu revealed that he had received an offer from abroad to start a YouTube channel.

    "If you look at the tweets that came in on Friday there is a gentleman who is ready to sponsor up to $25,000 (Ksh2,665,000) for Debarl (Inea) to establish something on YouTube.

    "I have not thought about it but when I do it will not be anything journalistic. There are a lot of people who need free [legal] advice so I might be taking questions and giving solutions online," he explained.
