During an interview on the Jeff Kuria Show, the vocal journalist recalled that she received an unbelievable offer while working at the vernacular media station.

“For eight months I did not receive a salary and I was a new a new mother and had just separated from my husband,” she recalled.
Reportedly, the managers used to cook meals for them at work as compensation while questioning why she and other employees needed a salary.
When she could no longer bear it, Njambi quit and started doing odd jobs to make ends meet.
“My family was so supportive during this time. I am loved by my family, they divided duties on how to take care of me and my son. I appreciate them for their help,” she remarked.
The journalist noted that after being away from the media industry, a friend called her, informing her of a job opening at Inooro TV, and urging her to apply.
Njambi narrated that she recorded the video demo while in the market in Kiserian, where I had gone for a job. She noted that she was not hopeful of getting the job, considering others who had applied.
“I remember when the HR called me, I was on my way home from Kisii. I thought I was dreaming and let out a loud scream. I did not even go to Nairobi,” she narrated.
She stopped at her family home, preparing to go to Royal Media Services (RMS) to collect her acceptance letter.

Ken Wa Kuraya “For three months, I was trained by Ken Wa Kuraya, and then I was absorbed. As they say, the rest is history,” she stated.
Conclusively, she encouraged her fans always to have a second plan in case plans do not go as expected, adding, “Never lose your value. God always has a plan for you. Know your worth and live according to your worth.”
