‘I believe he was a good man and I loved him…’ Radull narrates her marriage journey

Media personality Carol Radull has for the first time spoken about her failed marriage.

In a TV interview with Betty Kyallo, Radull spoke alot about her childhood, family, career, and relationships.

Radull says she divorced her husband a few years ago.

 “I was married for seven years and it wasn’t bad. It was a great six years and then one year was a bit rough. But having been in an institution of marriage is not something you easily jump into again.”

She went on saying;

“The lessons I learnt, I would never say anything negative publicly about my ex-husband. I believe he was a good man and I was in love with him when we were married but things just change and you grow apart for whichever reason maybe he is just not meant to be the one. By the time you’ve got there, how many people have you dated and it has not worked out? You can’t assume that maybe he just came along at a time when we were ready. I learnt alot in the institution of marriage and if it doesn’t work don’t force it.”

Radull then urged the society not to be judgemental on divorce cases.

“If you asked me this, four years ago when I was going through it, I would probably be in tears because people need to understand it is not an easy thing. You don’t wake up and decide this relationship is too hard I’m getting divorced. It’s not an easy decision you make. You give it a lot of thought, try seven times seven times and even after making the decision as you go through, it’s not easy even a year later. You always ask yourself if this is something I could have done?’ she said.

She added that people need to understand that it actually hurts when somebody belittles divorce, she prays that people don’t have to go through it.

“It’s hard Betty you’ve been there but there’s life after it [divorce].”

Her advise to divorcees was;

“Beat yourself up and if you’re lucky enough to find happiness in somebody else maybe that’s what was meant to be.”

Carol Radull has been in the media industry for more than 20 years focusing mainly on sports.

Maina Kageni Loses Bet To Carol Radull

Classic 105 presenters Maina Kageni and Carol Radull placed a bet worth Sh 5,000 on the outcome of Sunday’s match between Arsenal and Manchester United.

Carol supports Arsenal while Maina supports Manchester United, the amount was to be donated to Eddahs’ Hope cancer organisation.

Manchester United went on to lose to Arsenal and so Maina had to settle his part of the bargain. He sent the money as required to Eddah’s Hope to settle the bet.

Carol wished they had placed a bigger bet but was grateful that the amount went towards a good cause.

Here’s What Carol Radull Got For Her Birthday

Sports enthusiast and Classic 105’s The Score presenter Carol Radull turns a year older today Sep 18.

Besides being wished a happy birthday by Arsenal forward Theo Walcott, Carol Radull Njiru woke up to a fantastic surprise – a Swiss watch from her husband Mike Njiru.

Carol who says she has just turned ’18 years old’ was exhilarated by the gift and thanked the love of her life for it.

If you are planning to get her cake or high heels it’s probably not a good idea as she is not a fan of either. So what would the birthday girl prefer? How about a signed Arsenal Jersey and an interview from Thierry Henry would be great for a start although nothing could beat her husband’s gift.

We wish her many more birthdays to come , she is officially an adult and will pick up her I.D today from Huduma Centre in town.

Happy Birthday to me from @mikenjiru Thank you love of my life. A Swiss watch will get you anything and everything Lol

“I’ve Supported Arsenal For Almost 15 Years” Says Carol Radull

When I called her ‘the queen of sport’, many of you thought it’s probably because she’s my boss and I’m just being “nice” right? Wrong!! I called her so because she is and it’s now seen her nominated for the best use of social media (sports award).

Unknown to many Carol Radull-Njiru started supporting Arsenal back in the year 2000, but, she admits, that before that she was a Liverpool supporter. How many women do you know, that can mention the history of the teams they support? Plus, did I mention that her knowledge of local sports is also on point? You should listen to her show “The Score” on Classic 105 on Saturday from 3pm. That aside, I got a chance to have a one one one interview with her and got to ask her a few questions.

Q: If you were stranded in a desert with Roy Karuhize and Kieni Githinji and your only way out was to kill one and survive with the other, who would you beat? who would you stay with? why? 
Carol: Even though Roy annoys me more, they are like my brothers. I wouldn’t be able to choose so I’d leave them both to motivate each other and die together and rescue myself. Is that mean?

Q:If you were to choose a perfect line up for Arsenal, which players would you choose?
Carol: Unfortunately my line up would only have nine players because Arsenal doesn’t have a perfect starting 11.

Q: Pick one perfect coach for the team you mentioned above. Jose Mourinho? Loius van Gal? Pep Guardiola? Carlo Anceloti? Rafael Benitez? (Wenger is not an option) 
Carol: Even if Wenger was an option I wouldn’t choose him. I’d go with Pep. Classy football, intelligent manager with a winning mentality. 

Q: Who is the one person you would like to interview? And why? 
Carol: Thierry Henry. Could you arrange the interview? Although I think I would be too nervous to even open my mouth. As for why? He’s a superstar!


Q: If you had a chance to take one arsenal player on a date, Who would it be? Where would you go?

Carol: Let me play it safe here and say I would rather take an Arsenal fan on a date. His name is Mike Njiru and we would go somewhere where there’s a lot of steak. 

Q: If you were to switch to either Manchester United, Liverpool or Chelsea for one season only, for one million bob, which team would you pick? why? 
Carol: When I was seven I was a Liverpool supporter and for 10 million shillings, I could go back there. But not even Liverpool can have the privilege of having me as a fan for one million shillings. 

Q: Who do you think is your toughest competitor among the SOMA award nominees? 
Carol: Toughest? Gor Mahia; but I also have mad respect for Kenya Rugby 24/7. They both do a fantastic job. Many guys who have voted for me have said I owe them big because they ditched Gor Mahia for me. 

Q: What made you fall in love with sports and most importantly why Arsenal? (Why not Liverpool?)

Carol: Asking me why I fell in love with sports is like me asking you why you love good shoes. I played a lot of sport in school but watching football is just exciting. All the makings of a good soap opera exist in a 90 minute football game! Anger, betrayal and love when a goal is scored! Arsenal used to play the most exciting football in the English Premier League about 15 years ago. That’s why I fell in love with them. I can’t betray them now just because times are a little tough. Liverpool were unlucky in that I stopped watching football when I was in High School and when I resumed, I had lost my passion for them.

The Star Newspaper, Kenyan (publication) is at number 40 with 250,882 likes.



Queen of radio Caroline Mutoko and former Kiss 100 breakfast show is also top with a record 654,271 likes at number 11.



The date was  May 30th 2007, Carol Radull and Maina Kageni had met up to settle a debt. During  that season Arsenal had dominated their fixtures against Manchester  United  by beating them both home and away.

At the start of the season, Carol, an avid Arsenal fan, was sure that her team would win the league and therefore she put her money where her mouth was.

Since Manchester United had a quite a good run in the previous season but were under pressure to win the league, Maina Kageni was sure that they would take away the Barclays Premier League trophy.

A bet was then agreed and thus, the sum of  KES 5,000/= was up for grabs.

at the end of the season, Manchester United won it and Carol Radull had to part with the money.

Maina was however generous enough to spend his win on drinks for both of them – Carol drowned her sorrows as Maina toasted to his joy.
