Chemutai Goin and Ayub

Celebrated media personality Chemutai Goin has officially ended her working relationship with Royal Media Services-owned station Citizen TV.

Goin officially left Citizen TV on February 19, 2024, as she prepares to take up a new position in Speaker Moses Wetangula’s office.

The political reporter was on Monday treated to a pleasant surprise as she exited the media house.

Video shared by her now colleague Ayub Abdikadir shows Chemutai bidding goodbye to her fellow journalists with a grateful heart – narrating how she will miss the newsroom.

“Today I was looking at my first sign-off, and it was November 2018 when I came here.

“Leaving for me is bitter-sweet because this is where is littery had my wings and went to the eagles and I think that I where I will stay even when I go to other ventures,” she said.

“I’m glad I have really grown here … I never used to do Swahili when I came here I was sent on assignment and Jamilla Mohamed asked me to write something and now I do Swahili. This is it let me take the pen to another place and see how other sectors work,”.
