Kanze in tears as she bids Goodbye after State House Appointment [Video]

It was an emotional affair for Kanze and Lulu Hassan

An emotional Kanze, recounted her journey in the media industry as tears rolled down her cheeks, thanking God and the entire Citizen TV for the support during her 10 year stay at Royal Media services (RMS).

“Nashukuru Mungu kwa miaka hiyo Kumi na tano ambayo nimekuletea habari. Na Zaidi ya Yote ningependa kushukuru watu ambao wamesimama na mimi tangu nilipoanza safari hii kule KBC. Kanze hangekuwa Kanze kama sio nyinyi. Ukiwa Mwaminifu kwa Mungu naye anakuwa mwaminifu kwako, na anakushika Mkono unatembeyea naye. Nimeona Uaminifu wa Mungu na kule ninakokwenda na jua ni mkono wake. Na siwezi kusahau Kukushukuru dada yangu Lulu , na najua Nipashe wikendi haingekuwa bila wewe, and I know God has a great plan for you," an emotional Kanze stated.


"All was possible because of God and individual discipline. In whatever work that you do, be it small or big, ensure that you put God at the forefront of your plans. He has a way of lifting those who bow before Him. It was such a journey; and such a pleasure working with you. I wish you well too, Lulu Hassan,” she said.

“This day is sad to us, the Citizen TV family. However, it is a day for Kanze Dena to embark on a new task; a new journey. I wish her well,” Lulu said.
