In a statement shared on her official social media handles, the former “Punchline” host confirmed to have “suspended my services as an independent contractor to the show on 21st November 2020”. “My decision was guided by the Code of Conduct contained in the Media Council of Kenya Act which guides all journalists practising in the republic of Kenya. As a result. I can no longer in good conscience continue to be a part of Punchline,” she said. Kiguta, who has been at the helm of the political prime time show since July 2019, also thanked fans for their continued support.

Thank you my friend @AnneKiguta for standing up for yourself. It feels good to give those who think they have power over your mind the middle finger!

Huge news: Wonder Woman 1984 is fantastic! The story is excellent & has a great, timely message; it packs in a ton of surprises; and amazing work is done with both Cheetah & Max Lord (Wiig & Pascal are both stellar). Get hyped, because it’s the real deal. #WonderWoman1984 #WW1984 pic.twitter.com/9UQLyxn3gx

Pedro Pascal and Kristen Wiig are the highlights of #WonderWoman1984 for me.
Pascal goes ALL IN on a wild portrayal of Max Lord, a conflicted but vile villain.
