Jamila Mohammed has decided to call it a day at Kenya’s media conglomerate. The consummate professional had been a fixture on our screens from the time she joined NTV in 2002.
Her exit comes barely two weeks after her former boss and NTV’s General Manager Linus Kaikai also quit the TV station.
She was one of the longest-serving news anchors at the station having joined NTV as a reporter in 2002.
Jamila was appointed Managing Editor of QTV Kenya in 2015 and was also currently the Manager of Programming and Content Development at NTV Kenya before her exit.
The TV screen icon broke the news of her departure during Wednesday’s NTV Jioni where she announced that it was her last show at the media house.
Stunned colleagues and fans took to social media expressing how much they will miss the lively Swahili anchor while others wished her well in her career. Some of the screengrabs are below:
A fortnight ago, her former boss Linus Kaikai announced his exit from the Aga Khan-owned media house after a meeting that had been converged by the top management at NMG. Kaikai is now rumoured to be working as a consultant for Citizen television.
All the best wishes Jamila.
