KTN’s new crime and investigative reporter Franklin Wallah was on Tuesday, robbed by 6 armed gangster’s hours after leaving his new work station.

In an update on his Facebook page, Wallah disclosed that a group of 6 men armed with a knife and other crude weapons attacked him, walking away with his two phones, money and a watch.

“So today after celebrating my new move for my hard work in life. After just job, a group of armed men (6), have trailed me up to my place, while I was just almost home. They robbed me at knife point (plus other crude weapons), took my two phones, watch and some money...I pity them for what they have done for they know-not. All in all, I thank the Almighty God, for I escaped unhurt and life is going on...(I was off/offline for some time) #Ups&DownsOfLife,” shared Franklin Wallah.

Joining KTN

The unfortunate incident happened hours after Wallah had alerted his followers that he has officially joined Standard Group owned station KTN, barely a month after parting ways with K24.

The journalist reported to his new work on 3rd September, joining the likes of Hussein Mohammed, Brian Obuya and Siraj Abdulrahman who are in charge of the investigative desk.

“Uhakika nashindwa kuonyesha hisia zangu za furaha ila nimefurahi sana, tena Namshukuru Mwenyezi Mungu zaidi. Hivi majuzi niliwaaga kheri wenzangu (K24) nikatokwa chozi na ikaniuma sana moyoni. Ghafla, hii Leo nimepata makaribisho yenye fanaka hapa (KTN), kuashiria ni mwamko mpya katika safari ya kujenga tajriba yangu. Hayawi Yashakuwa... KTN Ndio nyumbani kupya..#KaribuMjengonimwaah mapenzi,” shared Frank Wallah.

On August 8th, Wallah announced his exit from K24 saying he had three and a half wonderful years working at the Television station and it was time for change.
