Weuh: Kalekye Mumo reveals why mum warned her against marrying men from Nyanza and Western regions

Being an 80’s baby means Kalekye Mumo grew up at a time when most parents preferred their kids settling down with people from the same tribe.

Marrying an outsider was more like trying to get disowned by your parents; and I believe this is how tribalism in Kenyan was born.

Radio presenter Kalekye Mumo

Speaking during her KM radio show; Kalekye for the first time opened up about her mother warning her against settling down with men from Nyanza and Western region.

From what Kalekye says is that her mum; was afraid of her marrying someone who could not  speak the same language as her (kalekye).

My mum told me once, usiwai leta mjaka, mtu wa western kwa hii nyumba. Afadhali uolewe na muindi. Akasema what she knows of those people, you don’t understand them, what they speak, they are different, you can’t.

Generational teachings

Speaking about this, Kalekye revealed that such lessons always left her in an awkward position; now that she had to ask everyone she was interested where they came from. She went on to add;

Kalekye Mumo with her mum and dad

So, at the back of my head as much as I’ll meet someone, I’ll start to ask them where they are from because that thing was put in my head from when I was a young person. Unagrow ukifikiria hivyo na ukimuuliza sana anakuambia hivyo ndio grandmother yake alimuambia and it was a big deal.

But with time, Kalekye says she grew up and was now able to make her own decisions; without having the judgmental advices passed down to her form her grandmother and mother.

I will still date them, I will still get to know them but in getting to know them, I’m more interested in you as a person, that doesn’t say anything about the tribe, that doesn’t mean juu mmetoka hio area mko hivyo because every different home is different.

With all this said and done- we are still not aware as to whether Kalekye decided to get married on the low; or is just enjoying life like everybody else.

Bado unakaa fiti! New photos of Kalekye Mumo at 45 years prove she is aging backwards

Media personality Kalekye Mumo recently celebrated her 45th birthday but what surprises many is that she keeps looking younger year after year.

Well if you think we are exaggerating this then wait till you see her photos taken during her recent 45th birthday that went down in Coast. If you ask me, Kalekye Mumo actually looks way younger than most of these 25 year old Instagram models surviving on filters.

As she celebrated her birthday, the former Kiss FM host decided to mark the special milestone with close friends and family as seen on the photos shared on her gram.

No family

Despite having the money and good lifestyle any woman would dream; it appears that Ms Kalekye did not have any plans of having a family or kids of her own.

With 50 around the corner – fans should probably accept the fact that this beautiful lady chose to do life on her own; and the best part is that she loves it!

Away from all that – below are just a few photos showing how hot Kalekye Mumo keeps getting; and come to think of it – clearly she is hotter than most of your 20 year old girlfriends.

Lanes! Inside Kalekye Mumo’s jaw-dropping living room (Photos)

It’s no secret that former Kiss FM radio presenter Kalekye Mumo is living the good life; years after quitting her radio gigs. Just like most celebrities she had to accept and embrace change which is inevitable.

So far I understand that she continues to use her social media platforms to reach her fans; and so far, things seem to be working out of her just fine.

Away from that, Kalekye recently shared a few photos showing off her outfit of the day; but what caught most people’s attention is the fancy living room seen in the background. Not quite sure whether this is her apartment; but chances are that it could be.

Judging from the deco seen in that room, we can confirm that Ms Kalekye indeed has some good taste when it comes to her lifestyle.

Family and kids?

While she leads the good expensive life, fans on the other hand cannot help but ask whether  She has any plans of settling down; especially since old age is starting to catch up.

One would expect Kalekye Mumo to follow into her parents footsteps (5 decades in marriage) – but is yet to happen. Well, we cannot really tell what Kalekye is planning in terms of having her own family; but all I know is that life partners from this generation are not the family oriented type.

6 celebrity media couples who parted ways in sad goodbyes

The media industry has housed multiple outstanding personalities over time, some who had to make exits we never saw coming, others whose chemistry lured fans to tune in to this station or that channel only for the end to come too soon.

Be it on TV, be it on radio, Kenyans have had to witness some of the most unpleasant goodbyes among media couples, leaving wounds that might never get healed unless these duos make major comebacks. Let’s start off:

1. Janet Mbugua and Hussein Mohamed

The former Citizen TV’s Monday Special duo split in 2015 while at the Royal Media studios as Janet left for maternity leave but never came back, leaving behind Hussein Mohamed to co-anchor with Jacque Maribe before the two later made their exit as well.

2. Lulu Hassan and Kanze Dena

The tale of Lulu and Kanze is one of best friends who we never ever thought would part until the latter landed a lucrative State House job in 2018 where she has been working since. Meanwhile, Lulu was paired with her beloved, Rashid Abdalla.

3. Kalekye Mumo and Shaffie Weru

Kalekye and Shaffie was one of the most popular and favorite radio duo Kenya has ever heard, with personalities perfectly complementing each other but unfortunately, the Kamba doll had to leave in 2016 as Shaffie paired with Adelle Onyango.

4. Victoria Rubadiri and Larry Madowo

A speculated screen chemistry many hoped would blossom into a love story without an ending, only for Larry to soon after leave NTV for BBC in 2018, where he has since been making major moves.

Olive Kalekye Burrows was one lady who stirred lots of controversy after an alleged screen chemistry with Dennis Okari just after his marriage with Betty Kyallo had started becoming wobbly, before the two were eventually separated on air.

6. Andrew Kibe and Kamene Goro

The unfortunate story of Kamene and Kibe is one that probably still hurts, a match so perfect but it had to be done in June 2020 after Kibe handed in his resignation, thereafter getting replaced by Jalang’o.

Kalekye Mumo denies leaving Kiss 100 Fm because of Caroline Mutoko

Former K24 TV host Kalekye Mumo has denied that she left Radio Africa Group because of her boss Caroline Mutoko.

Before joining K24, Mumo was a presenter at Kiss 100 Fm but resigned after 10 years of working. Speaking on her last Talk Central show, Kalekye said that it was not true because Caroline pushed her out.

By the time I was doing the morning Kiss with Shaffie, Caroline was not my boss, she was not even working on the same floor as me and she had nothing to with Kiss 100 in terms of its management, its presenters or anything to do with that,” said Kalekye.


Mumo went on to make it clear that she moved on because she needed a new challenge and TV was her next stop.

The stations PC was a mzungu from Australia. So no, it had nothing to the best of my knowledge to do with her because again it was a situation of this is where we are as a station, this is where I am as a brand,” narrated Ms Mumo.

Adding: “Most of the women who have worked at Kiss, who have left, they have left because of some tension. This is a person who has been the alpha female in this place for the longest time, so there has been those stories before,” she added.

“I will not cover my arms to make you smile” Kalekye Mumo fires at trolls castigating her about blotches on her arms

Kalekye Mumo is suffering from a skin condition that causes spots all over her arms. The K24 presenter shared a photo showing her arms and trolls quickly started mocking her.

Kalekye suffer from a condition called psoriasis, the same condition that American Instagram goddess Kim Kardashian suffers from.

Psoriasis is a common skin condition that speeds up the life cycle of skin cells. It causes cells to build up rapidly on the surface of the skin. The extra skin cells form scales and red patches that are itchy and sometimes painful. Psoriasis is a chronic disease that often comes and goes.[sic]

Notice the spots on Kim Kardashian’s legs caused by psoriasis

No shame

Kalekye doesn’t apply makeup to conceal the blotches on her arms. Kim Kardashian however applies makeup all over her body to hide the spots.

Critics started trolling Kalekye when she shared her photo on Instagram. They all said mean things about Kalekye without knowing she was suffering from psoriasis.

The K24 presenter however replied to her tormentors. She explained her condition and stated that she would never hide her arms just to please people.

“WAAAAAOO KENYANS…. so now my arms have hurt your entire existence… waooo did you forget, I DON’T DO LIFE TO PLEASE YOU!! But let me educate you… I have a skin condition which I’ve had since I was 3yrs old… it’s called psoriasis ASK @kimkardashian since she’s perfect and all… make up on arms and legs and all… I don’t have the money or time I AM WHO GOD MADE ME!! SOooo I will not cover my arms in the heat to make you smile coz guess what it’s a skin condition… the speeded growth of Skin… yours takes 28days to refresh mine 2-3days… which over works my system… Lucky I’ve not messed my organs which is highly likely… yes my skin could cause me fatal diseases as it has no permanent cure and can only be controlled…its highly conditioned by change in hormonal imbalance, stress, change in weather and anything that can prompt growth. So FORGIVE ME if I care less what you want to see or don’t… but at least before you write on my wall BE INFORMED!!” Wrote Kalekye Mumo.

Check out the photos below:

Ezra Chiloba resurfaces to give Kalekye Mumo a pat on the back

Ezra Chiloba was the reason why Nasa started the demonstrations against IEBC. Chiloba went underground after the heat became too much for him to stand.

Nasa accused Chiloba of being the architect of election rigging. The IEBC Chief Electoral Officer was forced to go on leave ahead of October 26th repeat presidential election.

Chiloba has also been mum on Twitter which is the play field of Nasa’s legion. The IEBC CEO resurfaced on Thursday night December 7th to give Kalekye Mumo a pat on the back.

Keep it up Kalekye

Kalekye hosted Octopizzo on her show Talk Central on K24 on Thursday night. Ezra Chiloba was impressed by Kalekye’s interview and he decided to send a shout-out.

Janet Mbugua reveals the main reason she did not wear a bra on her wedding day

Former Citizen TV’s news anchor Janet Mbugua wedded the love of her life about 3 years ago in a low key ceremony that saw only close friends and relatives attend at the Chaka Ranch but as expected her wedding photos were widely shared on social media for fans to see.

Despite having a successful ceremony, fans on social media did not seem impressed as they came out to question why she did not wear a bra since her breasts sort of looked ‘displaced.

Well, the media personality has revealed the main reason she chose not to wear a bra while speaking to Kalekye Mumo on Talk Central. The lady said,

Janet Mbugua on her wedding day

“I had those…what do you call them? Cup holders, it’s like there is barely any balance!”

Judging from how her dress was designed there is no way she would have worn a normal dress as it would have been visible on her dress…spoiling the whole design. Janet Mbugua went on to add that since she was in her first trimester (pregnant) she really did not give it much thought as she just wanted to get done with the day and relax.

“Again I didn’t care because I was pregnant. Even my hair had to be a certain way because I couldn’t retouch it because you can’t retouch it when you are in the early stages of pregnancy. There were so many things I had to consider around my pregnancy that I was like, ‘I know it looks a bit funny, but it’s all right my child has to be healthy.”

On whether the internet trolls affected her in anyway, Janet Mbugua told Kalekye Mumo…

“Trolling doesn’t do that much to me because.. I just feel like you are just projecting stuff that you feel about yourself on me. I feel that when you come at me it’s not really about me, I think it’s something you are dealing with.”

Cyprian Nyakundi savagely tears apart Kalekye Mumo after she ordered NTV to stop covering Kibera chaos

Twitter bigwig Cyprian Nyakundi took issues with Kalekye Mumo after she instructed NTV to stop its journalists from covering the chaos that erupted in Kibera.

Mainstream media houses have been accused of shying away from the bloody demonstrations that rocked Kibera and Mathere after Uhuru was declared winner of 2017 presidential election.

NTV however had its journalist in Kibera but Kalekye Mumo wasn’t pleased by how he was reporting, she took to Twitter to express her disapproval of the journalist.

“Okaaaaay @ntvKenya you need to pull off that journalist reporting in Kibera OMG what is he saaaying?? What is “litting tiers”???” Kalekye Mumo tweeted.

Twitter bigwig Cyprian Nyakundi was quick to respond, he reminded Kalekye that journalists who reported from conflict areas were heroes as opposed to those one sitting behind the microphone adding weight.

“Journalists reporting from conflict areas are heroes as opposed to those sitting behind the mic, adding weight like old camels,” Nyakundi twitted.

Nyakundi’s insulting remark rubbed Kalekye Mumo the wrong way, she caught a major one and decided to block him on Twitter altogether.

Kalekye Mumo slays in a school uniform as she takes part in #JohoChallenge … The photos and memes on that trend are super hilarious

Mombasa Governor Hassan Joho is the most talked-about person in Kenya, as a matter of facts he has been for days now.

Joho has been making headlines ever since President Uhuru Kenyatta placed him under office arrest in order to bar him from attending the Mtongwe ferry launch which was headlined by the head of state.

After the Mtongwe incident came fake academic certificate, Joho was forced to admit he scored D- after Knec spilled the beans.
