TV Queen Catherine Kasavuli Diagnosed With Cancer, Appeals For help

198

Legendary newscaster Catherine Kasavuli is hospitalized at the KNH Private Wing after being diagnosed with cervical cancer.

Fellow media personality Francis Gachuri shared the news while mentioning that the television queen is in urgent need of blood as he requested donors to chip in.

“Blood donation appeal Legendary newscaster Catherine Kasavuli is hospitalized at the KNH Private Wing after being diagnosed with cervical cancer. She urgently needs blood. Kindly avail yourself and donate. Thank you.” Reads Gachuri’s tweet.

Kasavuli started her career as a radio continuity announcer in 1980 at the Voice of Kenya, which was renamed to KBC in later years. She later transitioned to television at the company in 1985.

In March 1990, Catherine became part of the founding team of KTN as the first privately owned television station in the country. She had the honour of becoming the station’s first anchor to go on live broadcast, a shift from the previous pre-recorded format.

After being at KTN for 17 years, Kasavuli left the station in 2007 to join Citizen TV, owned by Royal Media Services. She was part of the mass exodus that saw a number of high-profile news anchors such as Swaleh Mdoe and Louie Otieno leave the Standard Group owned TV Station for Citizen TV.

In 2015, Kasavuli retired from the limelight to work behind the screens.

However towards the end of July 2021 which is eight years later since she went off the limelight, Kasavuli made a grand comeback and graced the Kenyan TV screens after signing a deal with the Kenya Broadcasting Corporation (KBC) where she is currently anchoring weekend news in an edition dubbed “Legends Edition.”
