K24 snatches another top anchor from Citizen TV

Published

on

A day after Citizen TV anchor Fred Indimuli quit, fellow anchor Anne Kiguta has also walked out, dealing a fresh blow to the Royal Media Services (RMS)-owned station.

According to sources at Communications Centre, she is also headed to K24, which is assembling a stellar pool of anchors ahead of next month’s relaunch. The station, which is majority owned by the Kenyatta family and Deputy President William Ruto, has already recruited the services of popular anchor Betty Kyalo from KTN News and KBC’s Rose Gakuo while Karen Knaust, who had left last year has also returned to DSM Place.

Kiguta and Indimuli’s departure is being interpreted as the aftermath of the discontent that has been brewing at the SK Macharia-owned media house after it poached star journalists from rival stations, NTV and KTN, and gave them big salaries. The pay of other employees has remained static for several years now. At K24, they are set to get better terms, which Citizen TV was unlikely or unwilling to match.

Others who have left the station in recent months include Salim Swaleh, who joined NTV and Mercy Kandie and Sylvia Chebet, who headed to the BBC.

Kiguta, who graduated with a degree in Communications, Electronic Media & Public Relations from Daystar University, started her media career as a presenter/producer at Hope FM in 2003 before joining Capital FM four years later as a reporter, anchor and on-line sub-editor. In 2009, she moved to KTN as a reporter/anchor.

She was promoted to the role of Senior Anchor, Current Affairs Editor in April 2010. She pioneered Checkpoint, a political affairs programme, and KTN Sunday Night.

Kiguta left for Citizen TV in 2013 where she has been serving as Group Digital Manager/Senior Anchor. At some point, she was the host of Opinion Count, a current affairs programme.

Her departure caps weeks of speculation that she was eyeing the exit door.
