KBC anchor Catherine Kasavuli has spoken on her highly anticipated return to national television, eight years after she called time on her stint in the media industry.

Sharing a series of posts on social media, Kasavuli stated that her comeback was a means of inspiring young and aspiring anchors, particularly female anchors, to dream again of reaching the top.

"This Saturday I'm making a comeback on KBC, its been 8 years. Can a girl just reinvent herself? This is for every girl out there who has the courage to dream again," read one of her posts.

“One day I'm definitely gonna tell my story. To God be the glory. ReInvent, ReInspire, ReBuild," read another.

She added in another post that she will be looking forward to rewriting her own story as the Queen of TV in Kenya.

“On Saturday, on Saturday we rewrite a story. On Saturday we show the world that we can dream again. On Saturday .

"On Saturday we continue with what we were called to, we awaken the ultimate purpose,” she added.

Kasavuli’s comeback in the media industry has been received with open arms by Kenyans of all walks of life, with many counting down to Saturday, June 26 as the official date she would return.

“Just came across this me waay back. If I met someone this day and they asked me "Catherine where do you see yourself 30 year from now?" she added in a different post while sharing a past photo of herself while presenting for KTN.

"I believe my answer would have been something like, "I want more grace in my purpose, more energy to inspire generations , enough peace of mind to experience God's faithfulness" Hey you, I hope that's your prayer,” shared Kasavuli.

The return of Catherine Kasavuli sent shockwaves across the entire country during the station's rebranding on Monday, June 21 following the sabbatical she took after serving as the 'mother of TV' in Kenya.

Kasavuli first aired news on KBC in 1985 when the station was known as Voice of Kenya (VOK). The soft-spoken and ever-smiling 59-year-old anchor has also worked at KTN and Citizen TV before taking a break.

She was the first female news anchor in the country and unbeknownst to many, she has also previously worked with Mediamax owned station K24.

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

It was there that she rose to the position of corporate affairs manager, before leaving for K24 where she later retired from the limelight in 2015.

Kasavuli will host the special Saturday segment dubbed Legends at KBC alongside veteran anchors Fayaz Kureish, Badi Muhsin and Pauline Sheghu, which will debut this coming Saturday, while Sunday Express will wrap up the week’s news events.
