Here Is A Throwback Photo Of Raphael Tuju When He Was A KTN News Anchor In The Early 90s

A lot of people know him as a veteran politician and the current Jubilee secretary general.

Tuju was once a presidential aspirant and an MP. After that, he went on to serve the Government of Kenya in various capacities.

However, not many know that the former Rarieda member of parliament was one of the very first news anchors at KTN. He worked at the media house in the early part of the 1990s. Previously, he had worked for Voice of Kenya (KBC).

KTN was founded in March 1990 and was the first non-pay privately owned TV-station in Africa. It was previously owned by a guy called Jared Kangwana before it was acquired by The Standard Group.

Apart from being a politician and news anchor, Tuju also worked as a Television Producer and was the first TV Producer in Africa to win an International Emmy.

Here is Tuju during his news anchoring days:
