NTV Kiswahili news anchor Jamila Mohamed has quit Nation Media Group and is moving to Royal Media Services’s Citizen TV.
Her exit comes two weeks after NTV General Manager Linus Kaikai left the company under pressure from management. Jamila, known for her soft voice and good command of Kiswahili, made the announcement during Wednesday’s NTV Jioni bulletin, where she confirmed that it was her last appearance.
Until her departure, Jamila was in charge of Kiswahili programming and content development at NTV. At Royal Media Services she will take up the role of managing editor for Swahili services, a position that is being held by Swaleh Mdoe in acting capacity.
