Former Citizen TV news anchor Hussein Mohamed has opened up on why he left the media house at the peak of his career.
According to Hussein, he was getting too comfortable at Royal Media Services (RMS) and felt it was time for a change.
“I was getting too comfortable, so I thought about it for a while and decided to thrust myself into a life of discomfort. It was time; I could feel it in my gut. It just wasn’t as thrilling anymore for me. As time went by I realised you could only do so much in the media if you wanted to change the country for the better. I had to pursue other interests. Looking back, I thank God for making that decision,” Hussein as quoted by Nation.
Mohamed quit Citizen TV in October 2019 after ten years with the media house.
“It has been a wonderful 10 years at Citizen TV. I have enjoyed & relished every moment I shared with my colleagues at RMS.
“I have decided to take a break after October In Sha Allah to concentrate on other matters. Loved the fans, the critics & everything in between. See you soon,” Hussein posted on his Twitter page while announcing his exit.
The former news anchor was recently appointed head of the communications in DP William Ruto’s campaign team.
Hussein disclosed that he accepted the job because of the work ethic of DP Ruto and the practical promise of the bottom-up economic model.
“I was attracted to this team by the personal brilliance of the DP, and the practical promise of the bottom-up economic policy that he champions,” he said.
