Popular NTV Presenter Larry Madowo has began the new year by announcing that he will be taking time off all social media platforms.
Posting the news on Twitter, Madowo does not give a clear reason for the move, instead, only saying he’s taking a sabbatical to “…live like a caveman.”
The media personality has however stated that he will maintain his presence across T.V, newspapers and “maybe other places too.”
I'm taking some time away from social media from now to live like a caveman. I'll still be on TV and the paper, maybe other places too

There's progress you however need to go through vetting by the #BeardGangKE committee to ascertain the legitimacy of your beard
