“He will report directly to the Editor in Chief with a dotted reporting relationship to the executive director – transformation,” Gitagama said.

After leaving NMG in 2012, he returned to Standard Group’s KTN as Managing Editor, serving for over five years.
He then joined Citizen TV in April 2018, and he is set to officially start working at NMG from April 1, 2022.
