Esther, Janet or Lilian?

How do you rate KTN's female news anchors? Who is the most professional? Difficult? OK, let's make the question a bit easier then: who is the hottest? Esther Arunga, Janet Mbugua, or Lilian Muli? Let's do a little poll.

My favourite is the gorgeous Janet Mbugua of course. Why? Well, listen to her deep voice and low intonation. How sexy is that? Then look at her full lips. How soft is that? She doesn't smile too often. How cool is that?

The only thing that worries me a bit about Janet is the period she spent in Malaysia. "I was modelling in clubs", she said in a recent interview in the Standard. But what does that really mean in practice? I should have been there in Malaysia at that time to confirm, so it is too late to worry too much about it right now...

And what about the competition?

OK, Esther Arunga is eloquent. But what else?

And yes, Lilian Muli is assertive. But what else really?

Let me open up a poll on the right side of this blog where you can cast your votes. Please also feel free to comment using the comment form.

UPDATE: Here are the results of the poll. Janet won, saw an opportunity and left KTN for greener pastures...

@ singamaraja: Feel welcome to this space. Let me also go and read yours then. Oops, it's in a language I am not getting...

You know in that interview Janet says: Well, I have slowed down, I must say. I do a glass of red wine and go home…I am trying not to sleep with people…men! I mean, I have really changed…!

That said, Esther Arunga gets my first vote! And my second vote. And my third.

I know, I know... am just saying that coz am sad Lilian is getting hitched.

What do you mean Esther is eloquent and what else. That baby face is enough to melt any hard heart.

She is also the most natural. So she gets my fourth vote too!

nikolas said...

this is biased eh? there is only one pikshure to look at and that is who gets most votes yes? i am ignorant as to how the others look but i like the one here. heh.

sleek said...

i agree with Nikolas..the decision has already been taken..make a fair case. She seems to have a bad girl thing gng on...and we all know abt us guys and bad gals...

Cee said...

From what I see no chicks are commenting on this post, so I guess I will just leave you guys to your guy talk....

Mama Shujaa said...

I did some research and I am glad to say that my selection put Esther Arunga ahead!

Here in Atlanta, most local news anchors look like they are about 70years old! I can't wait for the city to achieve the tier status it needs to command fresher faces! lawd ha' mercie. It's easier on the eyes.

Hey I rarely 'watch' the news - the beauties are a distraction! Can't we have more mature news anchors it will make the fellas oncentrate!

Pardon me I'm still thinking of who gets the vote though E.Arunga is close (J. Mbugua - so can't have no secret past, makes me scared what I used to do back in the day....lol)

Rafiki said...

@ Our Kid: So you think Janet will be fine now and for the rest of her life? Or could she fall in the same trap again?
Thanks for all your Esther Arunga votes.

@ nikolas: You are right, this may be biased, although I am not saying who is on the picture. But this election is just like real elections, where some candidates can afford to campaign a bit more I guess.

@ sleek: And once a bad girl, always a bad girl? Or would she have changed by now as suggested by @ Our Kid?

@ Cee: You are right, this post is targeting straight men and lesbians.

@ Mama Shujaa: It's mazing that nowadays you can do that kind of research from so far away, isn't it? And I agree, Esther is a sweetie.
But please note that @ Cee indicated that this space is mainly for guys.

@ Eef Dee Eye: It's good to have these beauties on the news. They are not distracting at all, actually it is the news which is distracting.

Mama Shujaa said...

@ Rafiki: re: your comment about the space being for guys - Nonsense!

Mama said...

Rafiki,

Janet is way hotter than all the choices you have provided no doubt about that! By the way I really wonder what this obsession with Esther Arunga is with our males. I have not met a male in Kenya who doesn't think that chic is hot. I am just saying......I guess you guys and notably from above Our Kid knows better!

However, just coz Janet is hot doesn't mean she gets my vote, I like Esther, she...knows what she is doing and so m6y vote goes to her.

Eef Dee Eye said...

Thanks for clarifying this was mainly for men...! Feels good talking serious manly issues and I agree the news does distract my concentration!! Now let me watch the news - oops sorry not the news

Putting all the factors together Janet is far a head of the lot. But there is a problem with honest people. The society wants people to tell the truth and be honest about themselves but immediately one start on that direction the judgment comes in loads.
Janet came out clean and revealed her past which takes a lot of gut for any chick to do even the closest one you are dating. Well i can see many are saying yeah she is hot but... It is in the back of people's mind that women from the church are angels while the free spirit who like to party are....you know the word. To be sincere this is a wrong assumption which sometimes boarders stereotypes. Some people from church are worst than what they portray to the outside world while outside there there are real living saints. Anyway to cut a long story short Janet gets my vote anytime

Mo said...

Modelling in clubs doesn't sound too wholesome, does it?

But let's give Ms Mbugua the benefit of the doubt...

I saw Lilian Muli a few days ago and she looked stunningly average. Vote for Mbugua as well.

Shiko-Msa said...

Rafiki mambo. Hope your hols were fab. Mine were.

The news is more of depressing than distracting of late.

I love Janet's voice. And I don't give a rat's ass about her past. I'm I allowed to say more than that seeing that am neither a straight man nor a lesbian?

Rafiki said...

@ Mama Shujaa: Nonsense indeed, like so many things here.

@ Eef Dee Eye: Are you male or female, straight or gay?

@ kachwanya: Seems like I will have a bit of competition when inviting Janet for a date. You are right, now that she has confessed her sins, she can be forgiven. I like her openness, but one question still lingers in my mind: "Is she telling us everything, or is this just part of her story"?

@ Mo: Next time you see Lilian, tell her she is not doing too well on Rafiki Kenya.

@ Shiko: Welcome back, where have you been? Long holidays? Mine were fine, and going for some more next week!
Where does Janet get such a voice from? Was she born with it or did she acquire it through too much smoking, drinking, or something else?
Of course you are allowed to say more, you always are.

Esther has the nicest bum.

archer said...

I agree, this poll is biased!! Esther any day, that's pure unadulterated eye candy. Her only compe should be from Isha Sesay of CNN!!

SupremeGREAM said...

Modelling in clubs = stripping? + what Ourkid says, she comes second to me after Esther. Muli is not graded in my list

Muli should not even be on the list...and I have tagged you. Check at mine for details

joyunspeakable said...

Archer said...

I hope you've had a chance to check out CNN's Isha Sesay. She's hottest!

Anonymous said...

This is catherine and i think the hottest news anchor is anjlee gadhvi. I like the way she anchors news and also her dressing. She tops all of the other news anchors. I am 100% for her. she is great and fabolous.

Naom said...

Esther is excellent, Janet follows on but Lillian is loosing out....she exeggerates her presentation!!
