  • Former Inooro TV news anchor Monica Kagoni has narrated that she went back pleading for a second chance, just five months after she resigned from the Royal Media Services stable. 

    Kagoni, together with other journalists, called it quits at the station after they landed a lucrative deal with Mt Kenya TV.

    They would soon realise that they had made a huge mistake after the station failed to pay them for five months.

    "I have to admit that I made a mistake. At the time, I was offered a lot of money by the station and because my husband and I were going through some financial difficulties, I opted to take it.

    "However, after just two months of working at the station, things went south and so after about five months of no pay, I quit. I felt that someone had ruined my career," she narrated.

    Desperate and in a financial crisis, Kagoni pleaded with Inooro TV managers for another opportunity but it was too late.

    "At the time, I was so bitter and felt that my former bosses should have given me a second chance, bearing in mind that I had done so much while still at the station," she stated.

    During the same period of time, netizens were trolling Kagoni and her fellow journalists for their decision to quit, blaming it on their hunger for more money.

    "Those comments were really hurtful because it is a time that I was going through so much...," she stated.

    After months of beating herself for the mistakes that she had made, Kagoni pulled herself together and started her own YouTube show 'Metha ya Kagoni' 

    "Yes I ruined my life, yes I made a mistake but I knew that I needed to forge forward and that is when I decided to take my Youtube shows seriously."

    As time went by, it became popular and with each show, her subscribers increased.

    The channel, which mostly deals with human interest stories, has so far attracted 66 thousand subscribers.

    Kagoni advises the youth to trust the process to success as well as be consistent in their work in order to achieve their goals.
