2 Senior Citizen TV Reporters head to BBC
Raburu quit RMS on Tuesday.
According to Business Today website, the two are headed to the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC), which is currently recruiting.
Their exit comes days after news anchor and radio host Willis Raburu decamped to NTV. Salim Swaleh, another Swahili anchor and editor, had also quit about three weeks ago to join the same station.
Ms Kandie, who joined Citizen TV from KTN in March 2016, made a name in the media industry with her rich feature stories on issues affecting the North Rift region, including the perennial conflict pitting Pokots and Marakwets and the use of culture in pursuit of peace before moving to Nairobi.
The stories won her various awards, including the best reporter of the year 2012 during the Standard Group awards, among others.
She holds a Bachelor Degree in Communication and Public Relations from Moi University.
Chebet is a health journalist who has made a mark with various feature stories covering a wide range of areas from HIV/Aids to multi-drug resistant tuberculosis (MDR-TB).
She was among the first group of TV trainees at Internews’ Local Voices program in Kenya where she honed skills on how to report on health issues accurately and effectively. As a result, Citizen TV launched the Heartbeat programme for her.
A multiple award winner, she also covers local and international politics, international criminal law, environment, education, business, education and culture.
