“We all showed up for a brother on his big day,” Ombija posted.

“I take this opportunity to congratulate my friend Ayub Abdikadir on his wedding today,” stated Babu Owino, Embakasi East MP, who missed the ceremony.

“The holy book of Q’uran advises Muslims to marry and that marriage is a way by which one leads a virtuous life.”

Ayub Abdikadir Rise

The Citizen TV morning show host rose to prominence during the 2022 general election due to his coverage and tough questions he asked the then Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) chairperson Wafula Chebukati.

He joined the industry via an internship opportunity at Ebru TV and later at K24 TV where he truly found a place to nurture his craft. 

However, before securing his place in scribal templates of Kenyan Journalism, Ayub went through it all, and like a bar of gold going through the refineries, the man from Wajir encountered complex experiences that he was willing to share.

The journalist’s perfectly nestled contributions to the 2022 Presidential Debate later earned him a place at Kenya’s most-watched television station, Citizen TV.

He joined Citizen TV on August 5, 2022, and remained on the mission since then – giving his very best to Kenyan audiences.
