About

Could she be the new queen of radio in Kenya or just another media personality who we will forget in a few years? Either way, Love her or hate her, Kamene Goro, born Michelle Kamene Goro, is a media personality, Femcee and video vixen. She is known for her outspokenness and bubbly personality.

Personal Life

Kamene Goro, age 29, was born on 24 March 1992 in Nairobi’s South C estate. She is the second born in a family of three. Her brother, Wambugu, the firstborn, is a graphic designer. Her younger sister is Natasha Goro whose pursuing medicine at the University of Nairobi. 

Information about Kamene Goro’s parents isn’t as public. What we know is that her father is an engineer and her mother is a film producer.  

Schooling

Kamene Goro graduated from the University of Nairobi with a Bachelor’s degree in Law (LLB). For most of her secondary and primary education, she attended Rusinga International Schools in Nairobi. 

Career

Despite pursuing an undergraduate degree in Law, Kamene Goro always had an insatiable interest in media arts. In an interview with Churchill Show, she said that she envied veteran journalists Caroline Mutoko and Julie Gichuru. Unfortunately, her parents didn’t allow her to take broadcast journalism for her first degree. This is the reason why she studied law instead.  

Before she got into media, Kamene Goro was building her experience in law. In her second year in Uni, she got an opportunity to do hands-on legal experience at the Kibera and Milimani Law courts. Post her experience at Milimani, she worked as a paralegal for the late Peter Simani at the Simani & Co Advocate. for eight months. Unfortunately, Simani who was a Senior Partner and Proprieter of the law firm perished in the 2013 Westgate attack. Consequently, Kamene Goro’s stint at the firm was cut shot. 

Television

This coincided with the launch of EBRU TV in the country. Her mother helped EBRU TV set up the station. In a meeting at the house, she was invited for a screen test which she successfully did. She started as a field reporter and later went on air. She was only 21 and was the youngest news anchor in the country at the time. She hosted a couple of shows like Just the Facts, The Weekly Report, and Africa in Brief.

As the station expanded, it brought in seasoned journalists. Michelle Morgan was one. Her entry into EBRU TV saw Kamene Goro, who until that time anchored the morning, lunch and evening bulletins, get relegated to just the lunchtime bulletin. This was a turning point for her as well. She dropped her English name Michelle and went on air with her second name Kamene, to set herself apart. This was the beginning of Kamene Goro.   

Just as her star was rising, Kamene Goro tendered in an abrupt resignation. She traded her career for love. “I remember I gave in a two-day notice.” She left for Arusha to get married. 

Radio

In between, she went back to help the station reorganise its news department. This led to her second stint at the station. This time, she was offered a position as head of news. Kamene cleaned up the department and got it running. That accomplished, it was time for her to move on.  

This saw her transition into radio. NRG Radio was the next destination. She interviewed for a position, waited for eight months and eventually got a radio job. Kamene was the breakfast show presenter alongside controversial media personality, Andrew Kibe. This platform she says elevated her career.

In 2019, the duo made headlines when they resigned from their gig at NRG Radio to join KISS FM. This was not without drama. NRG refused her resignation and took them to court. The case was eventually settled out-of-court. This opened the door for her to go back on the air. She joined KISS FM. She worked with Andrew Kibe. His departure led to her combination with popular comedian-turned radio personality, Jalang'o.

Relationships

Relationships don’t seem to have worked for Kamene Goro, something she admitted. She has previously been in two serious relationships which did not work out. In previous interviews, Kamene has narrated how she left her job at a local television station, Ebru TV, to get married in Tanzania. She was about 23 and 24. Kamene Goro’s ex-husband was a Tanzanian businessman. He met Kamene Goro’s parents but the radio queen revealed that they were not impressed.

Their marriage did not even hit the one-year mark. They were planning on formalising their relationship when he suddenly ended things. Kamene Goro disclosed that this happened via a WhatsApp call. She insists that she is not in a position to explain what happened. It seems like Kamene Goro’s husband made a knee-jerk decision. 

Away from that relationship, she has also been linked with former radio co-host Andrew Kibe. However, these rumours remain unproven. Joe Muchiri has also been linked with Kamene Goro. The two have been seen numerous times wearing matching outfits as well as taking suggestive photos.

Does Kamene Goro have a child?

Controversy

Kamene Goro’s outspoken nature has more than once landed her in hot soup. In August 2018, she turned the spotlight on herself after she publicly spoke about her body count. Fans had a field day with her comments and expressed differing opinions on the matter. 

Later in the year, Kamene Goro and co-host Andrew Kibe made headlines after their employer, NRG Radio sued them for breach of contract. They allegedly handed in their resignation abruptly after they were poached by Radio Africa to join their morning breakfast show at KISS 100 FM. The story resulted in them being barred from going on-air until the matter was settled. 

“So you know I have been taken to court. It’s now public knowledge. I think all of you guys have seen the story. I have been slapped with an injunction. I’m not supposed to go on air. So what guys, how I’m I supposed to work? Where do I get my living from?” She stated.

Kamene Goro also landed herself in trouble when she made some distasteful remarks regarding mental health. The post that has since been deleted read: “Mental health na hamna akili.” This left Kenyans outraged. Mental health is a sensitive topic affecting a lot of people and hence the statement seemed to be reckless and irresponsible, especially from a person with so much influence like her. 

In her defence, Kamene said she had struggled with mental health issues in the past. She went on to tell Kenyans that she would not joke about such a subject. If anything, “I would never joke about it.” she said. The post was a joke about people who are ‘mindless’. 

“I didn’t mean to troll people with mental health. I don’t take mental health issues lightly because it’s something I was once diagnosed with.” She further added.

Car

Kamene Goro’s car is only an indication of how much she has managed to accumulate over her career. She has been seen moving around in a sleek Mercedes Benz AMG 350. She posted a picture of the car on Instagram but it’s not known whether she is the one who bought it. “Who said you can't wear two different pairs of shoes in a day? Leo na kanyangia izo dm zenu,” she simply captioned the image.
