The reporter is most prominent as the brain behind ‘Sauti Ya Haki’ segment which highlighted the tribulations of the oppressed.

He recently got a grant from Plan International for being a top young investigative journalist.

“Am not willing to comment on this until I make up my mind, NMG has been my home and family but life is dynamic and it takes unexpected turns,” the journalist mentioned when contacted by one of the popular online magazines.

Other journalists who have left the station are Nimrod Taabu, Victoria Lubadiri, Larry Madowo, Linus Kaikai, Mercy Juma, Jamila Mohamed, Enock Sikolia and Rashid Abdalla.
