Former Citizen TV news anchor fired for allegedly taking bribes finally speaks after joining NTV 

Former Citizen TV Swahili news anchor Salim Swaleh has been topping headlines for weeks now after he was allegedly fired from the station for being corrupt.

Not fired

Two weeks later, Salim joined NTV, a station that has being losing employees at an alarming rate but the negative talk has followed him there. He has been forced to speak, claiming that he was not fired but he just resigned.

“Yes, it is true I left Citizen TV a week ago. I resigned for personal reasons not because of what I am reading online. My salary and the little I get from my businesses is enough money for me. I am professional journalist who has worked with international media entities,” Swaleh said in an interview with a local station.

The journalist is expected to take the role of senior news anchor, news producer and African affairs expert and researcher.
