Larry Madowo Returns to Twitter after Missing for Months, Shares Graduation Photo

After missing in the public eye for months, the celebrated United States-based Kenyan journalist Larry Madowo has resurfaced.

Previously, concerned netizens had trooped to social media to question the whereabouts of the broadcasting giant CNN’s international correspondent.

The Fourth Estate fellow is normally very active and vibrant on social media and his sudden silence and not appearing on television had raised eyebrows.

However, on Friday, May 20, Madowo broke his three months hiatus on social media.

He shared a tweet announcing that he had finally graduated in person at Columbia University after a two-year delay.

The 34-year-old was pursuing a Master’s in Business and Economics Journalism at the university’s Graduate School of Journalism.

“My in-person graduation from Columbia University was delayed by two years but it was still special.

I came back to New York to confirm that my Master’s in Business and Economics Journalism was real. It is and they haven’t changed their minds,” wrote Madowo.

His followers trooped to the comments section congratulating him.

Chris Migwambo said: “Congratulations and welcome back Larry. While you were away Elon Musk bought your favorite ‘bad’app. You heard it first here.”


Nyakwar Agut said: When I see this, I remember when Miguna Miguna dismissed you, thinking he was the only human being that had access to books. Bwana this life. When you finish your doctorate, I will personally call Miguna Miguna to reveal the news…Congratulations sibuor.”

Caroline said: “Look who is back; congratulations in order. Uo sotet ya mursik ukiland hapo JKIA”


Mumangi said: “Which part of the mountain do you face while praying. You’re so blessed.”

Ole Lemeiyan said: “We missed posts from Larry for almost 3 months now. Congratulations Larry.”

The former The Trend host on NTV graduated online in May 2020.

Madowo, initially BBC North America Correspondent, also co-authored an MBA case study at Columbia Business School and emerged as the winner of the prestigious 2020 Philip Greer Award for Financial Writing.
