Before joining the Real Estate world, Bhalo worked for an aviation college stationed at Wilson Airport for a month and a half on a managerial role. However, he exited the Aviation industry days after effects of Covid-19 downed on his employer.
In October 2019, Bhalo penned down a farewell message to his K24 viewers, after the station retrenched a good number of its employees, in the quest to cut down costs.
“Hakuna kilichokua na mwanzo kikakosa mwisho. Tarehe 30/10/2019 ilikua siku yangu ya mwisho ya safari yangu kama mwanahabari wa @k24tv kufuatia mabadiliko yanayopania 'kuboresha' kampuni hiyo. Shukran kwenu nyote muliofanikisha safari yangu ya miaka 4 katika kituo hicho. Allah akipenda tutaonana kwingine. Daima alipangalo Mungu hakuna wa kulipangua. #Anchor001 @houseofbhalo,” said Ahmed Bhalo.
Mediamax issued a redundancy notice on 30th September 2019, sending home more than a 100 employees.
