NMG also made changes to a content hub which will now see Roselyn Obala as the editor of politics, Julians Amboko as the business and technology editor, and Michael Omondi as specials and investigations editor.

Zeynab Wandati will head sustainability, Mwiti Marete opinion, Dorcas Muga Gender and Education while Diana Mwango will be the lifestyle editor.

The changes come weeks after the media house did a major restructuring of its top leadership ahead of its bid to enhance efficiency in the media market.

Among those who were lucky to move to new roles is the company's multimedia editor Oliver Mathenge who was appointed to be the Managing Editor (Audiences and Engagement) and news anchor James Smart who landed the Managing editor (Newsroom production) role.
