CNN MultiChoice Journalist awards finalist Enock Sikolia

DStv sits down with journalist Enock Sikolia, the 2015 CNN MultiChoice African Journalist Awards

With less than five-years experience in the field of journalism, Enock Sikolia has already built a household name locally and received one of the most prestigious award nominations in Africa - the 2015 CNN MultiChoice African Journalist Awards.

After starting off his career as a medical laboratory scientist in 2008, he later quit and decided to pursue journalism – something he says he had dreamt of doing from an early age. He’s worked at Koch FM, Citizen TV, K24 and is currently based at NTV Kenya where he says he’s been shaping his skills as a political and armed conflict reporter. However, Sikolia also loves to feature human-interest stories like the ones he submitted to the award jury.
