Makori Ongechi on why he left Citizen TV

Journalist Joshua Makori Ongechi has expressed his disappointment following the termination of his contract at Citizen TV.

The sacking according to the media personality came just when his star was beginning to shine.

Makori said his surprise dismissal from the Royal Media Services which he called home for over three years cut short his dreams and aspirations of his parents who prayed for him daily.

The reporter believed all that he needed was guidance from his senior colleagues to grow into a professional journalist of international repute.

“I had a big vision. I was just beginning. I wanted to tell the story of a poor boy from Kisii to the world. I needed guidance. I needed direction. But instead, my vision and the aspirations of my parents were strategically cut short on the eve of my birthday,” he tweeted.

There were reports the journalist was pushed out with sources claiming he had been in the midst of a row with some members of the station’s managers who took charge a few years ago.

The sources went on to allege that certain junior employees had been on the bad books of their managers who were keen to hire some favourite reporters.

“Many of the reporters are said to be facing constant accusations within the office with some working in fear of losing their jobs,” the source explained.

It was still unclear which new station he would be moving to but word on the street had it that he could soon be back on the screen at a different station.
