She enjoys fame and fortune as she is a resident of an exclusive region of the country, Lavington Estate, drives a KSh3.5 million Mercedes car, and spends her fortune on expensive tours.
Goro holds a law degree but decided to make a U-turn in her career after working for a while in the legal field as a paralegal. She switched to journalism which is what brought her to the limelight. She made her debut as a television presenter at the young age of 21 before finding her forte on the radio.
Is Kamene Goro a Kamba?
It has been confirmed that Kamene Goro is from the Kamba tribe of Kenya. The radio presenter was born on the 24th of May 1992 in Nairobi’s South C, Kenya. The Kenyan national doesn’t talk much about her family, thus, the identities of her parents are not known, but it is on record that her father earns a living as an engineer while her mum is also a media specialist.
Kamene is the middle child in a family of three children with a younger sister and an older brother. Of all her siblings, she has only mentioned her little sister who goes by the name Natasha Goro, The Goro children spent a better part of their formative years in Nairobi’s South C estate.
Goro has a Law Degree
Anybody who does not know Kamene’s academic background would be quick to conclude that the Kamba damsel holds a degree in journalism or related courses. However, that is very far from the truth.
After she finished from Rusinga International School, the aspiring media start proceeded to the University of Nairobi where she earned a law degree. However, she decided against pursuing a career in the legal field and chose to tow the same career path as her mother.
How Old was Kamene Goro when She Started Her Hosting Career?
Goro was just 21 when she made her debut at the then growing media station – Ebru TV working in her capacity as a Prime Time news reporter/anchor. Prior to that, the youngster was exposed to television when she tried out for a screen test while a 300L student at the University of Nairobi. This encounter marked the beginning of Kamene Goro’s career in the media.
During her time there, Ebru TV was one of the fast-growing media outfits in Kenya and Goro was put to work with the crew of The Weekly Report as well as Africa in a Word. In September 2015, she exited from the station, joining the company a couple of years later in 2017, but as the head of news. Before she finally called it quits with the station in late 2017, the anchor had hosted popular shows like Just the Facts, Africa in Brief, and The Weekly Report. Before joining radio, Kamene launched her own event company.
Radio Takes Credit for Bringing Goro to Mainstream Fame
After she left television, the media personality discovered her forte in radio following which she became part of NRG Radio. There, she co-hosted their breakfast show alongside Andrew Kibe who is credited as a notable controversial presenter. While on the show which starts at 6 am, the Kenyan native gradually made her way to the spotlight, thanks to her contributions to the show.
Goro’s name hit the airwaves in August 2018 when the radio host gave her listeners a glimpse of the number of men she has bedded. Her revelation naturally led to a serious controversy as fans gave mixed responses to the news. 2018 seemed to be her year of controversy as she sparked another one with the management of NRG Radio which eventually led to her resignation.
Kamene Goro’s next place of work happens to be Kiss 100 – a Kenyan radio station which she joined on the 14th of June 2019. She joined the station alongside her fellow controversial co-host Kibe who stayed for a while before Jalang’o came to take his place.

Her career in the media has taken her really far and she has earned quite a few accolades along the way. Goro has the distinction of being among the youngest female presenters of Prime Time News.
Her Career Before Joining the Media
Considering the fact that she studied law at the university, one would understand why she first tried her hands at working as a paralegal with the firm Simani & Co Advocate. However, her stay with the law firm was a brief one, spanning from February 2013 to July 2013. That was when Goro’s interest in the media sparked and she has never looked back.
On whether she would someday return to work in the legal field, the media personality said she is open to change but lives by guidance from God. She has always harbored a love for the legal profession which led her to study law in the first place, and she would gladly accept if in the future she finds herself back in the profession.
However, Kamene Goro said she loves the way her life has turned out and is enjoying the media for the present. Apart from her more popular career as a radio presenter, the Kenyan also gets busy as an event host, product promoter, and emcee. Besides, her switch from law to the media which are two unrelated worlds needs to be applauded. This is because it takes great courage, burning passion, and stellar intelligence for anybody to achieve success in a profession they never studied.
