"It was an honour and I'm grateful" Larry Madowo finally calls it quits following the showdown with his bosses

Larry Madowo has terminated his contract following the clash with his bosses. The NTV journalist announced he had quit on social media.

For starters, Larry Madowo disagreed with senior Daily Nation editors after they refused to publish his article. Madowo’s opinion piece titled ‘Why it’s a perilous time to be a journalist in Kenya’ was instead published by CNN.

The opinion piece addresses government crackdown on media houses and intimidation of journalists. Nation editors feared the article could offend the government and perhaps they couldn’t deal with the repercussions.

3 years of service

Larry finally decided to terminate his contract to write for Daily Nation following the ordeal. His decision comes after Uhuru’s lawyer Ahmednasir Abdullahi called for his resignation.
