Mukami Wambora her colleague on the desk on her part thanked Ndong for his guidance when she joined the media house.
“A lot of people don’t know this, I’m not a trained journalist I just have a passion for sports so I came in completely raw and Mike and Bernard had to teach me how script, how to edit from the very beginning and I have never felt so supported within a team,” Wambora emotionally narrated.
