    "Fine afternoon to welcome my brother to the Twin Towers. Welcome home fam," Nation health reporter Leon Lidigu stated.

    The journalist has a wealth of experience having worked at the Standard Media Group for five years and the Kenya Television Service.

    While announcing his resignation, Obuya expressed gratitude to KTN for helping him to grow into a fully-baked investigative journalist.

    "I have today left KTN News after a fruitful six years. Thank you for being a great audience and big motivation. See you soon," he said.

    Previously, Obuya has done some well-researched exposés that have gotten recognition from Kenyans. 

    The most common is the short investigative report on how Kenyan employees conspired to frame their Chinese employer for physical assault at the workplace.

    The journalist also did an investigation into Kenya's largest but silent threat to education known as; "Inside Kenya's piracy world right at the heart of the capital city; Nairobi."

    In addition, he also worked on a report on how Kenyan police torture their victims.
