K24 new show Monday Football featuring Kelvin Kimathi

K24 started a brand-new sports show that would go up against NTV's Sport On on Kenyan TV on Monday nights at 10 p.m.

Effective February 6, at 10 p.m., the new program, branded "Monday Night Football," will run every Monday at the same time as NTV's Sport-On.

A message posted on K24's social media on January 31 said that Kelvin Kimathi would host the new show, and Fred Arocho and James Situma would be on the panel.

"For FKFPL, EPL, La Liga, Serie A, and League One analysis, top-level banter, and great football interviews, don’t miss Monday night football with Kelvin Kimathi starting February 6, 2023," the MediaMax-owned channel stated on social media.

Before joining K24 TV, Kelvin Kimathi began his professional career as an intern at KTN News. Later, he was hired by Switch TV, where he hosted a program called Dikodiko Viwanjani, before transferring to Mediamax to anchor K24's sports news.

On the other side, Fred Arocho is a well-known media figure who is most known for his live Swahili sports coverage on Radio Jambo and his presentations on Citizen TV as a panelist on the Sporty Monday morning program.

The football analyst said that since his other responsibilities do not conflict, he would continue in them.

On the other hand, James Wakhungu Situma, a former Kenyan football player, played for both the Kenyan national team and Tusker FC in the Kenyan Premier League (KPL).

The former defender has said that he will stop playing professional football in 2019. He captained Sofapaka to a KPL championship in 2009 and was on Adel Amrouche's Harambee Stars team that won the Cecafa tournament in 2013.

Bernard Ndong and James Wokabi, who were snatched from Citizen TV and Capital FM, respectively, are the hosts of Sport On, the NTV program that Monday Night Football is slated to compete against.

The first episode of the show, which aired on September 19, 2022, included news about football as well as basketball, rugby, athletics, and e-sports.

Both programs perform media broadcasts; however, only the NTV program features athletes who have distinguished themselves in various sports.

K24 TV Monday Football will be aired on-top of the weekdays afternoon sports show dubbed Jungu LA Sport.
