From a Citizen Tv reporter to selling fruits~Story of Makori Ongechi


Makori,who was fired from Citizen tv, most expected he would join competing media houses to further his career as a journalist,but he ended up taking a low-key lifestyle to contemplate on his next move.

However, he did not suffer frustrations for long after he found refuge in a business venture that he had started as a mere side hustle when he worked at Citizen TV.

But after being rendered jobless , he resolved to revitalize the venture to make it a full-time job, where he orders fresh fruits such as bananas, avocados and tomatoes from his homeland, Kisii.

Just like any other hustle, Makori wakes up every morning not later than 3:30 am to receive his luggage from Kisii, which he then delivers to his customers, who later retail in the markets. With the help of his assistants, they finish distributing the fruits by 6:00 AM before proceeding to other daily activities.

Despite how diminutive the venture might look like in the public eye, Makori admits that life is better than it was when he was donning a tie and fitting suits at Citizen TV. Apart from comfortably paying his bills, he enjoys a flexible schedule since he has his entire days to explore other ideas.

Makori drives inspiration from his businesses, sending a message to practicing journalists to always consider a side hustle as an alternative source of income alongside their main job. He also admits that his family was the mainspring of motivation, who stood with him during the entire period, and who have now become business associates in the newly found venture.

It is for this reason that Makori does not rule out a possibility of making a media comeback in the future should an opportunity present itself. However, he insists he is currently focused on personal branding as a business person and media consultant.

His exit from Citizen TV was marred with controversy, with the media giant stating that they cut ties with Makori for unethical practices. The journalist, however, alleged foul play from top leadership, who he accused of standing in between him and his journalistic principles.
