KTN News anchor Lofty Matambo has called it quits at the station after a stint that lasted seven and a half years.
The Swahili news anchor announced that Sunday, April 18 would be his last bulletin at KTN News. He announced while hosting the station’s prime time Swahili news bulletin.
In his final heartfelt message, Matambo thanked his fans for supporting him and his employer, The Standard Group, for giving him the opportunity.
“For seven and a half years you have allowed me into your living rooms without knocking and you welcomed me with a smile. Those in the city watched me and those from the village followed my reports.
For the zeal to have an upright society, I brought you Kimasomaso to condemn the evil in the society and uphold the good. They reached out to me and I answered the call, the call to say goodbye and pursue other things outside The Standard Media Group,” stated the journalist.
“Thanks to Standard Group PLC for this chance. Thanks to journalists, fellow anchors and editors. Thank you for being patient with me. Let us interact out there and God willing, we shall meet again,” he added, keeping fans however guessing on where he would be headed next.
