More KTN Editors Headed to Citizen
The three editors are currently serving notice at KTN.
KTN’s Deputy Managing Editor (Swahili) Miswaleh Zingizi, award-winning Features and Documentaries Editor Asha Mwilu and Senior News Editor Noah Otieno are all headed to Communications Centre where they would join their former Managing Editor Joe Ageyo and Head of Senior Anchors and show host Yvonne Okwara-Matole who have already departed from the Mombasa Road-based Standard Group.
Zingisi previously worked as a continuity announcer at KBC Radio Taifa before moving to Mombasa-based Radio Salaam as news editor. She later took up a similar role at Nation Media Group’s defunct radio station, QFM, before quitting in controversial circumstances in August 2015 after reportedly differing with her boss. She holds a Bachelors Degree in Communication and Media Studies from Moi University. Ironically at QFM, she was the boss of Paul Nabiswa, who has been her senior at KTN News.

Mwilu was crowned the overall winner of the CNN Multichoice African Journalist of the Year Awards 2016 alongside cameraman Rashid Idi with a story investigating the terror activities in Mandera and its border with Somalia, Terror Crossing.
In 2013, she was named the reporter of the year by the Media Council of Kenya for her documentary Armies of the Underworld. Mwilu holds a Bachelors Degree in Broadcast Journalism from the United States International University and a Masters Degree in Documentary Practice from the University of the Creative Arts in the UK. She is also a Chevening Scholar 2015-2016.
