    Details also emerged that the investigative journalist is finalizing his employment terms with his new employer.

    “By the end of this week, he will have resigned. I can also confirm that he has already had a sit-down with the employer,” the source noted.

    Juma joined NTV having worked for QTV as a court reporter in 2013, since then he has been a crime reporter.

    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 Kenyans.co.ke.

    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.
