    "I have learnt alot, met amazing people and grown in ways I never expected. To a different chapter now," she revealed in a Twitter post.

    She failed to disclose her new destination but hinted that she could venture into YouTube after asking her fans to subscribe to her channel.

    The anchor also spared time to thank her fans who took time to watch her and supported her work especially those who offered feedback. 

    Kazia was part of the new team of four young News Anchors that joined KTN back in 2018 alongside Frida Mwaka, Jesse Rogers and Brenda Czeda Radido.

    She recently started anchoring news as she made several appearances in the 1 p.m. bulletin and Bottom Line Africa that features on KTN News.

    Prior to joining Standard Group, Maalika worked for Sound Asia FM as well as X FM before she made the big switch to TV.

    The TV star also doubles up as a blogger and has her own personal website where she writes on a wide array of topics, mostly on lifestyle.

    Maalika studied at the Aga Khan Academy in Nairobi between 2006-2013 before joining the United States International University and pursued a Bachelor of Arts in Journalism.
