Media personality Kamene Goro has addressed on-air speculations suggesting that she is expecting a child.

In her Insta stories, the former radio presenter expressed her frustration with the ongoing rumours about her physical condition following her recent birthday.

"Over the past week, I've seen a lot of comments, and speculation about how I was walking on my birthday, and it always goes back to the same outdated pretty insensitive conclusion that I'm pregnant. Like, come on guys. I said I would never respond but I feel I should because those sentiments are so unfounded and ignorant," Kamene wrote.

She clarified that her altered gait was a result of a recent knee surgery rather than pregnancy noting her struggles with the recovery process.

"Remember in January I had surgery on my knee that had me in the hospital for 5 days. I haven't walked in the long, it's actually in the run-up to my birthday that I started to try walking without my crutches. It's a difficult process to try to restore activity and muscle strength to the knee, that's why I'm walking or waddling funny. It's been such a difficult recovery honestly," Kamene explained.


"Anyway, what am I saying, before you talk from a point of ignorance and just verbal diarrhoea all over my comments just find out what's up, or even just ask."

Kamene undergoes knee surgery

The former presenter underwent knee surgery on January 24, 2024, at the Karen Hospital.

She provided followers with a health update as she rested in her hospital bed before undergoing surgery.

In a video posted on her Instagram Stories, Kamene revealed that she was at the hospital to address a torn meniscus in her knee.

The meniscus, a crucial C-shaped cartilage pad in the knee responsible for shock absorption, required repair.

"I have come to repair my knee, I think I have told you guys the story before. Yeah so I tore my meniscus and I am mmh, yeah so I am due for surgery this morning," she said.

Kamene expressed concern about the anaesthesia used to numb sensations during surgical procedures, noting that she feels uneasy about it.

Additionally, she mentioned that her post-surgery recovery tends to be more challenging than the surgery itself.

"I am a little bit anxious about the whole anaesthesia thing, I don't know this time round coz every other time I haven't been anxious about it but anyway so yes that is the surgery I am going in for I am hoping I will be able to walk as soon as possible coz I think for me he recovery is usually harder than the surgery," Kamene said.

In August 2023, Kamene Goro shared her plans to undergo a knee implant procedure, citing past complications.

She disclosed having experienced three instances of meniscus tears but emphasized that her knee challenges were unrelated to her being a plus-size individual.

“I’ve torn my meniscus three times. It’s not a weight thing. So I’m due to fix the third tear and get an implant,” Kamene explained.
