Taking to her social media, Miss Machira wrote an emotional post to announce her exit. She thanked the media house for the growth it has instilled in her.

“If you’ve followed me here on IG for a while, you know that I have poured my heart & soul into @bbcafrica. It’s been an exhilarating 3 years of my life, but my time at @bbcnews has come to an end. As with any salient undertaking, I experienced incredible highs & incredible lows. I have laughed, I have cried but most importantly I have grown. It’s been an absolute pleasure to serve with the entire team over at the BBC, I’ll miss you all dearly ❤️ I’m excited for what lies ahead,” she wrote.

Fellow celebrities such as Eugene Mbugua, Julia Gaitho and Noni Muchiri flooded her social media pages wishing the seasoned journalist all the best in her future endeavours.

Her move comes just months after actress Makena Njeri announced her exit.

“Every beautiful story has a beginning and a powerful ending. This has been my journey working at the Beeb for the last three years! I have been built as a journalist in a way I never imagined. Challenged to think different and talk to a global audience in every story I reported on,” she posted.
