Royal Media Services has caused a major imprint at Nation Media Group after poaching a good number of its journalists to reinforce its workforce.

Emerging reports indicate that NTV’s Swahili anchor Rashid Abdallah is set to join the SK Macharia owned media anytime soon.

A highly placed source at NTV confirmed to Pulselive.co.ke that Rashid would be joining his wife, Lulu Hassan at Citizen TV.

Pulse contacted the Swahili anchor but declined to divulge any details pertaining to his exit from NMG.

The news of Abdallah’s exit from the Twin Towers placed TV station comes days after award winning Journalist Enock Sikolia joined RMS.

If his transition is actualized, Rashid will be linking up with former colleagues at NMG who include, Linus Kaikai, Kimani Mbugua, Enock Sikolia, Jamila Mohammed, Victoria Rubadiri and Pamela Asigi.
