Mwasiwa has officially joined the media house on Mombasa Road months after partying with the Kenyan Redcross channel Switch TV.
On Thursday, Mwasiwa’s husband Mbaruk Mwalimu, who works as a radio host at Radio Maisha, used social media to welcome his sweetheart to the Standard Media Group family.
Ms. Mwasiwa was poached by Switch TV to replace Fridah Mwaka months after she left the station to join NTV with colleague Lofty Matambo.
In August, the newscaster said goodbye to her viewers, thanking Switch TV management for the opportunity to work with them.
“@switchtvke Thank you for trusting me to be on your screen, na kwa watazamaji wangu asanteni sana kwa kunithamini, Kuwa nanyi imekuwa fahari kwangu. Alhamdillah for the new opportunities, growth is inevitable ” wrote Hadiya Mwasiwa.
On her last day at the station, Hadiya was treated to a surprising farewell cake by her colleagues, led by Frederick Muitiriri, the head of the news desk at Switch TV.
“It’s a farewell, for now. We said goodbye to one of the hardest-working, smartest and most eloquent Kiswahili anchors in the country! @hadya_mwasiwa is missing in this place @switchtvke
I wish you all the best as you cross, we’ll see you in any case! “ wrote Frederick Muitiriri.
When she saw the goodbye message, Hadiya replied; “@fredmuitiriri Thank you very much for the guidance and the good guidance, it was really an honor to work with you, ubarikiwe sana the same for everyone @switchtvke Family “. Mwasiwa is married to Mbaruk Mwalimu Wazzah, who works for Radio Maisha.
