When God is on your side, nothing can go astray or rather nothing will ever come in your way.
Former NTV Swahili journalist Harith Salim knows this perfectly well, especially after seeing God’s hand in his career. The news anchor has landed a new job at K24.
The new opportunity came barely a year after the well-spoken news anchor was sacked from NTV, a station he had worked for, for years.
Well, after staying in the cold for months, God finally shone a light on Harith’s path and he found himself a new job at the Mediamax Limited.
The news anchor shared the good news with his fans through his social media pages on Tuesday, December 1. Harith shared a photo showing K24’s logo and did not add any caption.
He followed it up with a video showing the production room at K24 with the caption ”Mmmmmmh,”…
His posts impressed and inspired many people specifically his fans who camped on the comments sections to congratulate him.
Earlier in the year, reports emerged how Harith, alongside other top journalists, was fired from NTV in mid-2020.
Harith did not make public his quandaries but his counterparts such as Ken Mijungu came out to reveal about the firing.
“The axe fell NTV newsroom and I was on its way. 7 years in those corridors summed up in a two-page letter of termination. We live to fight another day. Thanks to God, He remains the greatest, thank you NTV Kenya for the opportunity and thank you for always staying tuned,” Mijungu said at the time.
Among people who were shown the door include Debarl Ainea, Brenda Wanga (reporter), Sharon Baranga (reporter) and Shaban Ulaya (Head of Swahili), Lillian Kiarie (business reporter) and Silas Apollo (political reporter).
