KTN, a media station owned by Standard Media Group, has been dealt a significant blow with the departure of two of their top news anchors. Journalists Fred Indimuli and Ahmed Bahajj have officially left the TV station, leaving behind notable roles.
Indimuli, who served as a prime-time anchor, and Bahajj, who was the sports anchor responsible for shows like ‘Zilizala Viwanjani’ and ‘Kipi Sijaskia,’ have both bid farewell to the station.
Ahmed expressed his gratitude for working with one of the country’s best media houses and leaves as a proud journalist. He spent four years at KTN.
Meanwhile, Indimuli’s departure from KTN comes after joining the station for a little over a year.
He previously left KBC in September 2021, just two months after joining.
Indimuli’s exit from KBC followed his recruitment, along with other veteran media personalities, during the highly anticipated re-launch of the National Broadcaster.
At KTN, he had replaced Ben Kitili as the host of Inside Politics after Kitili was poached by NTV.
Before his stint at KBC, Indimuli had worked for K24 and Citizen TV.
In 2020, he was among the over 100 employees laid off by Mediamax due to the adverse effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on businesses.
Indimuli had also held positions such as an Online News Editor at Radio Africa Group Ltd and a TV and Radio Editor at Kiss TV.
The departures of Fred Indimuli and Ahmed Bahajj mark a significant loss for KTN, which now faces the challenge of filling their roles with equally capable anchors.
