Edith Kimani - Profile

A long way from home

At the beginning of 2017, Edith Kimani left for Germany to start a new life and career in Berlin as a DW News anchor.  She was leaving behind many fans in Kenya but she was bringing along seven years of experience as a reporter and anchor with one of Kenya's largest broadcasters, KTN. In 2009, Edith began her career after winning a KTN reality show contest seeking out Kenya's most talented young news anchor. She then hosted her own show, On the Record, and earned a name for herself as one of Kenya's top young journalists. With a passion for environmental issues, she moderated the DW debate at the World Economic Forum for Africa on renewable energy. Before coming to Germany, she was DW's East Africa correspondent and host of DW's Eco@Africa.
