Why Soni Methu was dropped from ‘CNN INSIDE AFRICA’

Wondering why Soni Methu is no longer voicing the CNN Inside Africa programme anymore? Wonder no more – we have the lowdown.

We reached out to our friends at CNN through their public relations (PR) firm in Kenya, asking why Ms Methu, 33, was no longer on the screens.

“Please note that earlier this year, CNN Inside Africa moved to a new format without a presenter, with a greater focus on the stories we’re telling. We thank Soni for all of her work on the show and wish her the best for the future,” read a response from Engage BM, the public relations firm that handles CNN.

Ms Methu now works with CCTV Africa, which is headquartered in Nairobi.

The IT alumnus of Strathmore University honed her career at the Kenya Broadcasting Corporation, starring in the drama ‘Hila’ and presenting Taj Show, a talk show.

She then became the East African correspondent for South Africa’s eNCA from where CNN tapped her in 2014.
