Jeff who is behind the trademark slogan, 'All Kenyan, All the Time' is said to be headed to South Africa for a top anchor and reporter position with Arise Television Network, an off-shoot of Arise Magazine. The new network, will broadcast live news and features on the African continent to viewers in major global cities.

Arise Africa is owned by Nigerian Media magnate Nduka Obaigbena, the chairman and founder of Nigerian newspaper 'Thisday', one of the largest and most influential media brands in the continent.
