“Taarifa yangu ya kwanza kwenye ilipeperushwa jana. Nakiporomosha lugha kweli kweli,” he said.

This comes just months after Larry quit the Aga Khan owned NTV for the BBC as Business Editor for Africa.

“I leave  as I came: humbled & grateful. The job was one of the great honours of my life. Thanks to everyone who watched, and to Nation for the privilege of the opportunity. I’m proud of my amazing colleagues & everything we accomplished. Farewell, my friends. Stay woke,” read Madowo’s message as he left.
