Former KTN Investigative Journalist John Allan Namu has finally opened up on why he left the Standard Group owned station at the peak of his career.

Speaking during an Interview on Radio Maisha, Namu disclosed that one of the main reasons that made him walk away is that, he was not satisfied by the why main stream media was covering things at that time.

Namu added that another thing that pushed him out of main stream media was the dream of starting his own company.

“I wasn’t satisfied on the way main stream media was covering things. Na kulikuwa na vitu havikuenda poa huku, so it hurt me, it hurt me in a way that I could not be able to do it , especially in a company I had dreamed working for. But the bigger goal was to own my own company, I can say that was the bigger dream I had” said Allan Namu.

Own company

After his exit, Namu opened his own company “Africa Uncensored” that has specialized in doing investigative and human interest stories.

His revelation comes days after his Documentary dubbed “The Profiteers” ignited an endless discussion on social media.

“The Profiteers” was a three-part documentary that exposed looting of funds in conflict-prone South Sudan by prominent leaders and politicians.

"The Profiteers", a documentary by the award-winning investigative journalist, was supposed to be aired by a local media house but was later dropped.

In a thread via his Twitter handle, Mr. Namu stated that the editors of the said media house “were largely happy with the story, but wanted to remove certain parts of it as they sought comment from an adversely mentioned person. We disagreed, given that we had already sought fair comment from this person.”

The former KTN journalist then went ahead to upload the three-part documentary on the Africa Uncensored” YouTube channel and since then it has sparked a heated conversation in the country.
