Changes at Radio Citizen

In May Royal Media Services (RMS) owned Station Radio Citizen made changes in its programming, giving Mzazi Tuva a new co-host (Selly Kadot Amutabi) after riding solo on the show for 13 years.

Previously, Selly used to host Pambazuka, a gospel show that air from 4am to 6am. But she was replaced by Syombua Osiany.

Before Ms Osiany was shifted to the early morning show, she used to host Chapa Kazi alongside Jerida Andayi who joined that Jambo Kenya team that consists of Inspekta Mwala, Vincent Ateya and Melody Sinzore.

Selly Kadot joined Citizen Radio in January (2019) after being poached from Qwetu Radio where she used to host Baraka Za Kwetu.
