Angela was a presenter at Radio Africa Group’s Kiss 100 Before joining Nation FM.Angwenyi quit her popular State of the Nation show at Nation FM in 2015 after 10 years in the media industry.
At the time of her departure, the presenter had been linked to the infamous NYS scandal in which a company, Out of the Box Solutions Limited, linked to her had been accused of receiving up to Ksh302 million.
The payment was apparently made to the firm as a consultancy fee to publicise tenders for the youth as well as women.
Her troubles continued a few years later when her house got put up for auction after she ran into financial woes.
The National Assembly’s Public Accounts Committee (PAC) had stopped payments to Out of the Box Solutions owned by Angwenyi and Antony Lungaho after both parties had been paid Ksh90.7 million.
The house located at Jacaranda Gardens Estate in Nairobi was set to be auctioned by Garam Auctioneers that placed an announcement on a local daily in 2019.
Prior to this, her bank account had been among 14 that were frozen in 2018 as investigations into the scandal went on in 2018.
