Mule did not disclose his new role at the global organisation as his former colleagues and followers replied to the post with congratulatory messages.
He announced his exit on Friday, December 31, 2021, during a Swahili news bulletin. While making his remarks, he thanked God, his family, and the NMG fraternity for the opportunity to work and soar higher in his career.
“Today is my last day of anchoring news in NTV even though we know tomorrow belongs to God,” he said.
His colleagues had surprised him with a cake while saying their goodbyes to him following the bulletin.
The long-serving anchor and regional editor at NTV was at NMG for precisely 10 years, 3 months, and 2 days.
Mule joined the media industry as a writer with Taifa Leo and the English newspaper Daily Nation before heading to QTV as a reporter and finally an anchor at NTV.
He has also lectured at Daystar University, United States International University (USIU), and Strathmore University.
His exit came as a number of top journalists left the station in 2021 from Anita Nkonge to Edmond Nyabola to senior anchor and editor Jane Ngoiri and former business anchor cum reporter Victor Kiprop.
Nyabola on Wednesday, December 29, 2021, thanked his colleague for making his time at the Twin Towers worthwhile.
“Thank you for serving together for the past three years, it’s been great, it’s been an honour and I wish you all the best going forward. You guys are one of the best teams to have worked with,” he said in a short video shared on social media.
The same month also saw Gladys Gachanja leave the station after hosting Your World.
