In a teary and mournful emotional somber send-off, the Royal Media Services family came together to offer each other not only support but a shoulder to cry on as each one of them struggled to come to terms with the sudden departure of one of their longest-serving colleagues, Bernard Ndong’.
After delivering the sports bulletin as he has for about a decade, Bernard Ndong’ shocked viewers by announcing that he was leaving Citizen TV. Although he didn’t disclose where he’s headed, his colleagues were besides themselves with melancholy.
Victoria Rubadiri who had earlier on read the main news said she would miss him dearly. Mike Okinyi who couldn’t be in the studio wished him the very best on his future endeavors while Francis Gachuri went all religious, reading him the Altar-Boy rites as he also wished him well in his journey.
It was however Mukami Wambura who felt the weight of the departure so much that she broke down crying, unable to proceed with her goodbye wishes to Ndong’. As she got herself together, Waihiga Mwaura went down memory lane, reminding Benard how they once had to sleep in a makeshift napping area.
Bernard went to St. Nicholas Nairobi Primary School in Nairobi for his primary education. He then joined Lenana School for his secondary education. While here, Ndong was a very active member in sports.
He went to Daystar University for an undergraduate diploma in Broadcast Journalism. Bernard also has a Master’s degree from Hekima College and another diploma in French from Alliance Francaise.
Ndong’ started as an intern at KBC in 2007. While here, Ndong tried auditioning as a reporter for several media stations including NTV unsuccessfully. He decided to try an audition at KTN’s The Presenter but failed to make it.
It is sensationally claimed and remembered that the audition was headed by Janet Mbugua and some other two presenters who told him that he should try something else. An opportunity presented itself when Royal Media Services had a sales job therefore he was posted at Mulembe FM.
