Ndong, who presented his last broadcast on June 25, received an emotional farewell from the crew who showered him with messages of praise for an illustrious career at the station.
Senior Sports Editor Mike Okinyi - in his farewell message - narrated how Ndong ended up on the sports desk despite having been hired as a sales representative for the media house.
“We were going to studio to do a screen test for Kirigo Ng'arwa and you asked if you could join and I said yes, please join.
"I remember it was three weeks of hard training and back and forth and when I finally sent the tape to our then-boss Faridah Karoney, she had no doubts and she said, 'Take Ndong for sports, Kirigo will join breakfast,' and the rest is history,” narrated Okinyi.
