The youngest of nine siblings, she recounted her early days in Nairobi after completing her Form 4 education.

Sabina Chege’s journey took an unexpected turn as she was selected to replace a character named Rehema on the show, leading to her brief acting career before pursuing university studies.
Her story continued with a surprising twist when she shared, “During my pregnancy, I used to drive a matatu and ply the routes in Dagoretti.” This revelation showcased her determination and resilience.
Sabina also disclosed that she entered into marriage before joining university, explaining that her decision was driven by her strong Christian beliefs. She clarified, “I thought that when you are in a relationship, you must get married, but I did not get married because I was pregnant.”
Looking ahead to her future, Sabina Chege expressed her ambition to become Kenya’s first woman president. She emphasized her confidence in women’s leadership, stating, “I would pray to God that, that day comes and happens, that I will be the first female president.”
While she didn’t specify her immediate political plans, Sabina noted that she is currently focused on her family responsibilities.
