In recent development, she confirmed that she had been discharged and was doing well, adding that she was elated to be back home and not sleeping in a hospital bed.

“Glad to be back, thanks for all the wishes and prayers.”

While narrating the experience, Kalekye stated that she was at a point where she had lost appetite for food and could not feed on anything.

She added that the art of eating should not be underrated as so many people lose their lives daily and the hospital program messed up her routine.

“Yaani kuzoea kuamushwa mapema hosi can mess you up waaa… found myself chomoaing my hand freely ¨chukueni damu yenu,¨ she wrote.

Kalekye was a presenter at Kiss 100 before making her way to K24 TV as the Talk Central host, and later exiting to start her own talk show dubbed Kalekye Mumo Live and Uncut.

She is renowned for her weight loss journey where she stated in 2017 during her birthday that she had managed to shed off 40Kgs in a span of eight months.

“My doctor said if I don’t lose this weight, I could get a blood clot. He said what was happening me was a sign of something bad happening in my life. That is when I took the issue seriously,” she said during the party christened My Little Secrets.
