He announced on Twitter that he was ending his relationship with Capital TV immediately. He, however, did not cite the reason for leaving the channel.
“All good things come to an end. I am ending my relationship with Capital TV, effective immediately. Thanks to all my colleagues for the good memories. My journalistic journey continues.”
His followers appeared saddened over his decision.
“Very sad to hear how all voices with a difference being silenced - take care,” tweeted author Ayesha Siddiqa.
