Talking of his daily routine, now that he was already accustomed to a specific schedule back at Citizen TV and Hot 96, Jeff admitted it has not been any easy one for him.

Complete madness in my head. Coz the clock in my head, still wakes up at 4 am. It’s been crazy trying to adjust but I know I’ll be back on sooner than you think probably. This is only temporary. But this thing is real!

The Test

The seasoned journalist recalled how he was compelled to undergo the Covid-19 test after one of the colleagues at Citizen TV tested positive, only for him to get traced as a contact and end up testing positive as well.

It probably happened in the radio station because someone at Citizen was tested positive and I was traced as one of their contacts. My boss, Wachira Waruru came up and told me “Jeff, you gotta be tested” and I said “for what? why? You know I have no symptoms” and that was it.
