From 2012 to 2021, Linda Oguttu dominated Kenyan television screens as a news reporter and anchor for NTV and KTN.
In 2017, Linda made headlines when she faced the possibility of suspension from KTN due to allegations of indecent dressing.
Background and Education
Linda Oguttu was born in January 1988 in Bondo Sakwa, a village in Kaakudi, Siaya County. Her personal journey has been shaped by both joyful and challenging experiences, although specific details about her mother and siblings remain undisclosed.
Tragically, Linda’s father passed away from lung cancer on March 6th, 2016, at Meridian Hospital in Nairobi West.
Linda began her professional journey in 2012 when she joined NTV, which provided her with an excellent foundation. Later, she transitioned to KTN, where she remained employed until 2021.
On November 19, 2021, Linda made the decision to leave the Standard Group in order to focus on her new role in the sports industry. She shared this news with her followers on various social media platforms.
In November 2021, Linda was selected by former Sports CS Amina Mohamed to lead the caretaker committee of the Football Kenya Federation.
Achievements and Wealth
Linda’s career in the media industry, particularly at KTN, has undoubtedly contributed significantly to her financial success, although the exact amount remains unknown.
Aside from her media involvement, Linda was appointed by then-Sports CS Amina Mohamed on November 11, 2022, to head the caretaker committee of the Football Kenya Federation.
Linda applied for the position of Chief Administrative Secretary (CAS) but was not successful. Had she been appointed, her monthly salary would have been Sh765,000.
Marriage and Family
Linda Oguttu is married to Dennis Mambo, a businessman based in Nairobi. The couple has a daughter named Amira Christa Mwangeka.
Linda is open about discussing her family’s life, and in January, she mentioned that her daughter had requested a Gucci purse for her birthday. However, in an effort to teach her daughter that life isn’t always luxurious, Linda decided to deny her request.
