Famed for his ‘Jicho Pevu’ segment, Mohammed Ali is set to make a comeback to TV. The Nyali MP announced that we should expect him back soon but in a different station from KTN.

This was in a tweet that read “A Camera as Revolutionary as you are! I am Coming. New station, new deal. Guess who is coming to dinner?”

Departure from media

Mohammed makes a comeback after leaving the media about two years ago to throw his hat into the ring of politics.

He called on well-wishers to stand by him just as he has stood up for the common mwananchi through his explosive Jicho Pevu series. “I have stood up for you for over a decade, and used my voice to amplify yours. Now I ask you to stand with me. Inside the National Assembly, there is a quote that says ‘For the just Government of men’. Yet Justice has fled from the once honourable house. Help me take Justice to their doorstep,” Ali said in a message on his social media page.

Working as an investigative reporter for ‘Jicho Pevu’ was literally a life and death affair as his work with partner John Allan Namu attracted death threats.

In addition, people would also terrorize the then Jicho Pevu producer Kassim Mohammed with scary threats like people walking up to him and threatening him with guns.

While most of them preferred to sting like a bee, others chose to dance like a butterfly by using sly ways like offering the two lump sums to kill a story.

“One memorable moment was when we were offered $10,000 (Sh1, 000,000) to kill a story. It was one of the first ones that set us on the path to doing what we do now. Just the entire decision not to take that money was very difficult. People think that integrity and just saying ‘no’ is easy, but when you count $10,000 in your hands, it is very different,” Allan once told SDE.

After the two parted ways, Mohammed bagged the Nyali parliamentary seat while Allan Namu co-founded African Uncensored as he wanted to pursue continental stories in an unrestricted fashion.

Sacrificing a stable 9-5 job proved fruitful for Allan Namu as he not only told stories he was passionate about but he also gained international recognition for his work on ‘Africa Uncensored’.

The company recently bagged a nomination at the One World Media Awards. ‘Africa Uncensored’ was nominated in the Special Award category alongside Rwanda’s Radio Inzamba, Rapller from the Philippines and the Salam Afghanistan Media Organization.

“Very grateful that @AfUncensored has made it to the long list of nominees for this year’s Special Award! Congratulations to all the other independent media houses that have made it from across the world! This made our day,” Namu Tweeted.
