KTN Newsroom

Standard Media Group-owned station KTN has suffered another major blow following the exit of their two top news anchor.


Reports reaching our Entertainment desk confirm that journalists Fred Indimuli and Ahmed Bahajj have left the TV station.

Indimuli was a prime-time anchor at the station while Bahajj was a sports anchor in charge of ‘Zilizala Viwanjani and Kipi Sijaskia.


In his exit message, Ahmed wrote; "It has been a pleasure working with one of the best media houses in the country. I leave a proud journalist,".


He has left the station after 4 years.

On the other hand, Indimuli has parted ways with KTN, after a year and a few months of joining the station.


Indimuli left KBC in September 2021 after only two months at the National Broadcaster. On June 21, 2021, Indimuli was among veteran media personalities who were hired by KBC during their much-anticipated re-launch.

He was later paired with TV Girl Shiksha Arora for the Friday bulletin at the station, but his untimely exit will see Arora ride solo on #EasyFriday.

 He was poached by KTN to replace Ben Kitili as the host of Inside Politics. At the time Kitili had been poached by NTV.

Before joining KBC, Indimuli used to work for K24. He was among the over 100 employees who were fired by Mediamax due to adverse effects of covid-19 on businesses back in 2020.

He has also worked with Citizen TV.

“It’s not that am going somewhere, it’s only that am presiding over my last edition on Day Break. A few things will change but I will communicate that. It’s been a pleasure hosting Day Break, the news review for the last 2 and half years, and Thank you for always being such a lovely audience,” said Fred Indimuli while exiting Citizen TV in 2018.

Before joining Citizen, Indimuli worked as an Online news Editor at Radio Africa Group Ltd. He also worked as a TV and Radio editor at Kiss TV.

The two (Fred and Bahajj) are said to be headed to TV47 – a station that has been on the run to revamp its newsroom with notable news in the media industry.
