Moha ‘Jicho Pevu’ resigns from KTN to vie on ODM

Popular investigative journalist Mohammed Ali has hanged his boots and officially announced his entry into politics.

The youthful journalist, who is renowned for his investigative series Jicho Pevu on KTN , will vie for the Nyali parliamentary seat in the forthcoming elections.

He called on well-wishers to support his bid financially, promising to “take justice to one’s doorstep”.

“I have stood up for you for over a decade, and used my voice to amplify yours. Now I ask you to stand with me. Inside the National Assembly, there is a quote that says ‘For the just Government of men’. Yet Justice has fled from the once honourable house. Help me take Justice to their doorstep.” said Ali in the message on his social media page.

The message was accompanied by a video detailing his work as a journalist down the years.

Sources suggest that the journalist has already resigned from his position as investigations editor at Standard Group, to try his hand in politics.

He has not been seen at work for one week.

The Nyali seat is currently held by Wiper MP Hezron Awiti.
