Exclusive: Trevor Ombija speaks on replacing Joey Muthengi at Citizen TV
Senior NTV anchor and associate producer Trevor Ombija is leaving the station after close to six years of service.
In an exclusive with SDE, the velvety-voiced reporter disclosed that he is headed to Royal Media Services owned station, Citizen TV.
Ombija said that he was grateful for the opportunity accorded to him at NTV, cherishes the relationships he made and proud of his work at the media house.
“Yes, it is true, I don’t know how it leaked and tomorrow is my last day at NTV. The media industry is changing and people change too. I have worked at NTV for over five years,” he said.
Responding to reports he is going to replace Joey Muthengi, Ombija explained that he is focussed on opening a new chapter and doing his best.
“I would not want to use the word replace. You can never really replace anyone. Everyone brings their expertise and uniqueness,” said Ombija.
Muthengi hosted Citizen TV’s morning show Day Break and 10 over 10 before she announced she was leaving a few days ago.
Her fellow 10 over 10 hosts Willis Raburu penned a moving message, heaping praise on her for standing with him during hard times.
“What a ride it has been. You inspire me with your passion and meticulous planning, your organization and your amazing spirit. Most people don’t even understand our chemistry or how hard it is to find in this industry,” he posted
Speaking to Monday Blues, she disclosed that she was headed to Italy to be with former Kenyan international McDonald Mariga.
“Mariga is a cool person. I am fond of him. I will be moving to Italy in January and I guess time will tell what next, I don’t know where this (relationship) will take us. Ask Mariga.
“But we will see what becomes of it. Unfortunately, I just felt that what I was going to do with life did not coincide with what Citizen TV had for me. Besides, I had a good time there and I will miss everyone, especially my fans,” she said.
Their relationship came to the fore mid this year after Muthengi traveled to Italy to shoot BetIn TV adverts.
Declining Journalism Standards: Trevor Ombija Did a Very ‘Lame’ Report on How Sh200 Million Would Stack Up
A lot goes into decisions to put a journalist on TV. However in recent years, it has been claimed that a pretty face and nice figure is all you need, especially for women.
The result has been declining journalism standards across all media houses. Journalists with capacity to make great content but with not as good looks have been sidelined gradually and now TV stations are a shadow of their former selves.
Over the weekend, Nairobi Governor Evans Kidero made some really outlandish statement on how Sh200 million would stack up. He knew he was addressing a very gullible audience and did his best to exaggerate.
It was therefore a relief when NTV announced that they would be testing Kidero’s theory.
With disbelief, Kenyans watched as Trevor Ombija demonstrated why Kidero was wrong. Watch the clip.
It was quite depressing to watch Trevor count to 25. They did not bother to forward that part. My first thought was this was a tactic to make a news report of a length acceptable to the producer without really minding the quality.
Since Trevor was interested in 50 tiles, he could have employed quicker ways of getting to that. For instance counting to 10 tiles, and multiplying that by 5, or vice versa. But I guess counting to 25 added to the minutes.
However, that was not the worst part.
As a journalist, Trevor should be out to provide facts when politicians try to mislead. The affidavit by Mr Kiplangat clearly states that the bribe was delivered in US dollars, but when Kidero said that there’s no way Sh200 million can be passed through a car window, he was talking about Shillings. He is a politician and misleading is part of the playbook.
Not once in Trevor’s report did he highlight this. Instead of informing the public that the money was in $100 bills, Trevor made spent half the time counting tiles.
If he had not left out this very important part, he would only have counted one or two tiles but he didn’t want that, did he?
Obviously Kenyans felt Trevor was taking them for a ride.
