Shockwaves as Citizen TV Suspends Swahili Anchor Swaleh Mdoe From Air

Swaleh Mdoe, the Swahili News Anchor for Citizen TV, has been temporarily removed from on-air appearances.

An insider from the media organization located on Dennis Pritt Road informed Gossipa2z that the news presenter faced suspension for missing the 1:00 pm bulletin on Tuesday, January 23.

For the past three weeks, Mdoe has been absent from the broadcast.

According to our informant, the experienced television personality supposedly underwent a medical examination on the day he was absent from hosting the daytime news broadcast.

On the specified day, the journalists neglected to inform their supervisor, resulting in the editorial director choosing to suspend them.

Upon his return to the workplace the following day, his superiors called him in and prohibited him from making on-air appearances indefinitely.

According to reports, Mdoe has continued to show up for work regularly despite receiving a verbal suspension.
