KTN Investigative Journalist Dennis Onsarigo Resigns

  • Standard Media Group has suffered yet another blow in the face of stiffening competition from rival stations that have picked the best talent in the industry.

    KTN’s investigative desk is sinking into oblivion after lead investigative journalist Dennis Onsarigo tendered his resignation from the station.

    The veteran investigative and political journalist will be the second after NTV’s Steve Juma to pick senior County Government roles as younger journalists shun the specialization.

    Kenyans.co.ke has reliably established that Onsarigo will be leaving KTN to take up his new job as the Director of Communications in Taita Taveta County.

    Taita Taveta Governor Samboja, a former journalist has raided KTN assigning Onsarigo additional roles as the spokesman of the County.

    It is now clear after the exit of Mohammed Ali and Africa Uncensored’s John Allan Namu, the future of the sole investigative segment at KTN hangs in the balance.

    Onsarigo has been the leader in the production of Case Files and his bold and courageous reporting is outstanding.

    Away from the weekly program, Onsarigo does not mince words in his defense of human rights and speaks to the bone whenever he finds governance going to the dogs.

    Through his social media, Onsarigo speaks it all and this has earned him a huge online following.

    He holds a Bachelors of Arts Degree in Political Science and Communication from the University of Nairobi and a Diploma in Broadcast Journalism from the Kenya Institute of Mass Communication.

    He has been working for KTN since 2011.
