The local leading media houses have experienced a ruthless poaching session for the last couple of weeks. The latest victim in the poaching is NTV’s Kiswahili news anchor Nimrod Taabu. The hunk is exiting the city-based media house and joining his former colleagues at Royal Media Services. It is alleged that Nirod,41, is joining Citizen TV to replace Kanze Dena who was appointed as State House Deputy Spokesperson a few days ago.
Following the exit, his friend and co-host Jane Ngoiri took to social media to pen down an emotional goodbye note him:
What an emotional day it has been. I can feel the void in my heart. I still have tears in my eyes...errr balancing tears is no joke. I never thought a day would come to say Goodbye. Nimrod Taabu has being more than a colleague, a Best Friend. When I joined NTV in 2012,
I was starstruck by this guy who I watched and always wanted to do News with...and when I met him...we just clicked. Our chemistry on TV attracted eyeballs, we connected with viewers and it has always been fun working with NT. Nimrod Taabu; May the Almighty God Bless you in this New Chapter of your Life
We wish him best of luck on his new journey.
