Jeff Koinange Leaving K24, Headed to South Africa

Kenyan journalist Jeff Koinange is leaving his popular TV talk show Capital Talk on MediaMax-owned K24TV. He is said to be headed to South Africa for a top anchor and reporter position with Arise Television Network, an off-shoot of Arise Magazine.

Jeff, a former Africa correspondent and reporter for CNN and CNN International from 2001 to 2007, has had a great run at K24, interviewing many Kenyan and world politicians, celebrities, and other high profile personalities on "The Bench". His trademark slogan "All Kenyan, All the Time" has been popular on the show.

There has been talk since around September that he was leaving MediaMax for a high profile job outside the country, with a base salary as high as Sh80 million a year.
