KTN News journalist Zubeida Kananu is the new and first female president of the Kenya Editors Guild (KEG) following editors’ elections during an annual general meeting held on Saturday, April 29 in Nairobi.
Kananu takes over the reins from Churchill Otieno who she served under as vice president for a two-year term. Ruth Nesoba also takes over as vice president of the guild.
