Renee Ngamau: Former Capital FM Presenter Elected To Amnesty International Post


The announcement was confirmed on Sunday, September 12 by Vice-Chairperson Deprose Muchena in a statement shared via the human rights organization’s social media platforms. 

Former Capital FM morning show host and Amnesty Kenya Chairperson Renee Ngamau has been elected to the Amnesty International Global Board. 

The announcement was confirmed on Sunday, September 12 by Vice-Chairperson Deprose Muchena in a statement shared via the human rights organization’s social media platforms. 

While congratulating Ngamau for her elevation to her new role, Muchena touted the move as a big step in confidence in terms of Ngamau’s movement to becoming a leader, influencer and capable global manager needed by the organisation at a critical point in their history.

“This is a supreme mark of confidence from the movement in Renee’s attributes as a leader, influencer and capable global manager needed by Amnesty at this critical juncture in our history. It is a mark of affirmation from Amnesty Kenya,” said Muchena in part. 

Ngamau is an advocate of the High Court of Kenya and the holder of an LLM, Masters in Financial and Banking Law from the University of London, United Kingdom. 

Recently, she was honoured for her dedication as a human rights defender to protect public land. Ngamau received the United Success Global Award Titled Women Moving Mountains for the advocacy work, especially for the defense of playgrounds and open spaces. 

Ngamau began her career in business when she was still young and she was selling chapatis, sacks of potatoes, eggs as well as keeping broilers, turkeys and print t-shirts just to get pocket money. 

Her first career was a junior lawyer earning a decent salary before serving as the alternate director to the chair of the Board of Directors at Total Kenya. Later on she moved to the UK where she studied for a master’s degree and began her PhD degree. 

She returned to Kenya where she joined Capital FM as a morning show host for five and a half years before she went back to practice law and made a choice in 2020 to work towards raising, supporting coaching, training, mentoring 1 million women to confidently run successful businesses which can hire at least five other women and pay them the top salary scale within their countries. 

“One of my greatest failures is for the first six months when I was in media, I used to trend for how bad I was. People would tease me about my accent. 

“Kenyans On Twitter (KOT) can be vicious. I have never been a great entertainment person. I’m interested in the economy. I’m interested in politics, I’m interested in business, I’m interested in growth, achievement, development, human rights, this is what I’m interested in,” she revealed to the Nation in a past interview. 

Ngamau was recently featured amongst the 100 Most Influential African Women by Avance Media alongside Wanjira Mathai, Dorothy Ghetubba, Chebet Chikumbu, Wanjiru Kamau-Rutenberg, Roselyne Akombe, Kitui Governor Charity Ngilu, Chief Justice Martha Koome, and Kirinyaga Governor Anne Waiguru.
