Television personality and former host on the morning breakfast show on Citizen TV, Kirigo Ng’arua, recently landed a lucrative deal with a Kenyan lipstick brand Pauline Cosmetics and despite her exit from local television, she continues to keep in touching with her fans on social media.
Most recently, Kirigo opened up about her scariest experience in life and rather than the cliché horror experiences that involve crawling insects and animals. Kirigo says that Vagina Monologues was her scariest experience yet.
“One of the scariest things I have ever done. If you have ever been to one of these sessions –Vagina Monologues- you know how intense it gets…but it’s also a beautiful experience…The appreciation of women and what they go through.” Kirigo confessed.
The Vagina Monologues is an episodic play by American playwright, performer, feminist and activist Eve Ensler. It is made up of a varying number of monologues; each dealing with an aspect of feminine experience from sex, masturbation, orgasm, love, rape to menstruation, female genital mutilation and birth.
It also addresses the various common names for the vagina and its aspect as simply another physical part of the body.
Quite an international movement, the play has been adopted and staged internationally in over 140 countries; and translated into 48 languages. Mumbi Kaigwa brought The Vagina Monologues to Kenya on March 23, 2003 where it opened for the first time in Africa.
