Kenya's biggest investigative reporter, Mohammed Ali, he of the Jicho Pevu fame, has been poached by NTV. The KTN reporter (now former) who has built a reputation in investigative journalism will be joining Nation Media Group this August.
Together with Dennis Onsarigo, who was incidentally poached by KTN from NTV, the two have provided some jaw breaking investigations, the latest being the Artur, state house and cocaine overhaul connection.
Ali will be joining John Alan Namu, who has just concluded 'In The Footsteps of Felicien Kabuga', one of the biggest investigative pieces in Kenya. Namu had previously worked at KTN before NTV did the poaching.
Before the news of Ali's departure sinks, another high profile journalist is decamping.
