  • In his final show, Mohamed will moderate a discussion pitting Senate Majority Leader Kipchumba Murkomen against National Assembly Minority Leader John Mbadi.

Top Kenyan journalist Hussein Mohamed on Tuesday night hosted his last show on Citizen TV after a 10-year stint at the Royal Media Services-owned station.

Hussein has been hosting the popular Newsnight show every Tuesday, before which he hosted the Big Question news segment.

In his final show, Hussein Mohamed moderated a discussion pitting Senate Majority Leader Kipchumba Murkomen against National Assembly Minority Leader John Mbadi.

The debate majorly centered around the yet-to-be-released Building Bridges Initiative report expected to give a raft of recommendations on resolving 9 key issues in the country; ethnic antagonism, lack of national ethos, inclusivity, devolution, divisive elections, security, corruption, shared prosperity and responsibility.

Hussein Mohamed early this month announced his departure from Citizen TV affirming that he relished his experience at the leading media company.

“I have decided to take a break after October In Sha Allah to concentrate on other matters. Loved the fans, the critics and everything in between. See you soon,” he said.

The political news anchor is known for his hard-hitting interviews and has hosted top leaders including President Uhuru Kenyatta, his Deputy William Ruto, ODM leader Raila Odinga among others.

In 2016, he interviewed Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on the Sunday Live show. The PM’s trip was the first by an Israeli leader to Africa in 50 years.

Hussein Mohammed began his career at Royal Media Services as a political reporter and rose up the ranks.

He has been described as a no-nonsense, impeccable, objective and candid journalist and won the male media personality of the year at the Somali Glamour Awards last year.
