Top investigative journalist Dennis Okari on Wednesday confirmed his departure from NTV, as he takes up what he termed as his next big challenge at BBC World.
Dennis shared a touching farewell message on social media thanking all those who have supported him and pledged to continue telling the African story to the world.
Here’s the message
FAREWELL: It is with great pride but sad note that I’m posting this message .
It has been a great joy working for Nation Media Group – NTV as a Senior Investigative and Crime reporter. Like everything else in this life, my time has come to an end.
My last day at NTV is today after I resigned a month ago. I wish to thank all my friends here, fans, family and colleagues in the industry who followed my stories and my career path.
I have worked with KBC, Metro FM, TBN – Family media, Barakafm, KTN, Kiss TV, NTV and now it’s time to spread my wings to a global audience.
I am joining BBC World. I leave the local scene with my head held high that in my very small way through my stories, I was able to make a small difference.
I look forward to my next big challenge but will carry with me fond memories of those I interacted with. Those who took time to call me, text, email or share story ideas. Thank you.
NTV is the best newsroom any journalist would want to work in and I will miss my colleagues.
I will continue telling the Kenya (African) story to the world.
God bless you all!”
His stories will surely be missed.
