Barang’a was delighted to share that she has now joined the Nairobi-based China Global Television Network (CGTN) Africa.
China Central Television’s (CCTV) overseas arm is known as China Global Television Network (CGTN).
“This week, I started a new chapter in my career. To everyone who has been following up on my journey, cheering me up & praying for me…Asanteni sana,” she said.
With the intention of fostering a cultural exchange between China and Africa, the China-owned station has over the years worked with some of the most accomplished Kenyan journalists in the business.
Idah Waringa, another brilliant journalist, was hired by CTGN on March 30 and assigned to work at the station’s Beijing headquarters.
The journalist shed tears as she said farewell to her coworkers during her emotional departure from TV47.
“My farewell party just went down. Today was my last day at TV47…I cried, I ‘crewed’, it has been an emotional day leaving a company that received me warmly when I was going through a rough patch in my life.
“TV47 became more than just a company I worked for. It literally became family as it provided a soft landing for me. I will forever be indebted to this brand that I hold so dear,” Barang’a wrote.
