Hudheifa is a trained lawyer but he took to business news while at NTV which was also his first employer.

The move comes just a week after senior crime and investigative reporter Steve Juma got an appointment as Director Governors press service Tana River county.

Those who have joined BBC from NTV in the past include celebrated journalist Sophie Ikenye and Denis Okari, who worked for the media house briefly before returning to NTV, among others.

The latest assault comes as the BBC expands its regional operations.

During its career day in September last year, BBC World Service, its radio arm, stated it was preparing to hire more than 100 staff members in the East African region by early this year, in one of its ambitious expansion plans.

The company has also been working on its new production studios that will employ over 200 people.
