Citizen TV has the crème-del-crème set for their Nipashe news reading. The TV station has poached any top Swahili news anchor in the market leaving their competitors biting their lips.
The new team oozes of talent and fine Swahili anchoring.
And the only oldie in the team is Swaleh Mdoe, the rest are fresh blood likely to make Citizen the only choice for Swahili news.
Interestingly, Nipashe will also be the first station to have ‘couple ya power’ read news together as it will feature the sassy Lulu Hassan and her hubby Rashid Abdallah.
Here is the full list:
Jamila Mohammed – formerly of NTV
Nimrod Taabu – formerly of NTV
Mashirima Kapombe – formerly of KTN
Lulu Hassan – CitizenSwaleh Mdoe – Citizen
Rashid Abdallah – formerly of NTV
The list shows NTV was the biggest casualty as the Royal Media Services-owned outlet went out on a poaching spree.
The star-studded team will definitely dwarf NTV Jioni and KTN’s Jamvi not to mention K24’s Makala ya Jioni.
