New beginnings for Media Personality Lofty Matambo and Frida Mwaka are set to join Nation Media Group-owned station NTV days after parting ways with Kenya Television Network (KTN).
The two are said to be preparing to make a debut on NTV, where they will be paired together for the 7 pm Swahili Bulletin.
The short video was shared by Salim Swaleh, who is the Head of Swahili News at NTV, with a caption that says "Coming Soon".
Joining the Conversation, several fans were able to identify Matambo and Ms Mwaka from the video despite their faces being hidden.
Lofty called it quits from the Standard Group owned TV station KTN on April 18 after seven and a half years.
"Aisee, kuaga ni kugumu😌. Ila sina budi. Dunia ni jamvi kubwa. Kwaheri ya kuonana," said Lofty.
The news anchor said he joined the station as a young man, leaving a grown man and with experience.
Ms Mwaka broke the news of her departure during her last broadcast on March 21, stating that it was a pleasure working for KTN.
"Safari Ni Hatua.
Imekuwa Fahari Yangu Kutembea Nanyi Katika Safari Ya Matukio Ya Raha Karaha Ila Zaidi Ni Alama Ambazo Zimeganda Moyoni Mwangu Kwa Kunishabikia Na Kunifanya Bora Katika Tasnia Ya Uanahabari @ktnnews
