“Today l anchored my last bulletin at KTN News a place l consider home because of the people. A place where my career rose to a level l would never have imagined. Today l sign off and say goodbye. Thank you for watching and supporting my stories and programs, forever grateful,” said Kerubo.

Colleagues at KTN News wished the exiting journalist the best in her future plans.

"I have honestly enjoyed working with you. We have laughed, quarreled, fire-fought, learnt, been disappointed, and put our best to this. I have learnt a lot from you especially in doing features, a craft that even won you an award. As you leave, I wish you all the best in your endeavors," Brian George Otieno wrote on his social media pages.
