The 'Miracle Working God' singer made the announcement after hosting her popular Rauka TV show, on Citizen TV.
"I would like to take a bow and hang my boots and say kwaheri to all of you who have allowed me to come into your homes for 12 good years. I have come into your homes through you know just gospel Sunday and just the whole journey that it has been over those years,” she said via a video posted by Citizen TV.
“Thank you so much for loving me, for encouraging me, for cheering me on, for allowing me to speak into your lives as well," the recording went on.
An award-winning reputable gospel star, Kambua got married to her longtime boyfriend, Pastor Jackson Mathu, in 2012. Together, they have two children.
