Her move comes weeks after she left K24.

“It was an amazing year. I worked for Mediamax for four years and I finally got an opportunity to say thank you and start doing my other things. My contract ended on November 1 as it was for four years from 2015," Chidzunga said.

"I had a decision to renew it or not. So I had already made a decision not to. It’s just a matter of time. For me, life has to go on. There is more to life than just TV. I mean, there is the Internet, YouTube, all these things.

“Then I’m always prepared. When one door closes a gate opens for you. For me, I’m always ready for the next opportunity. For me, it’s no big deal.”

Chidzuga presented the Best Actor in a Film Category gong at the Kalasha Awards on Saturday.

“There’s a lot of opportunity for Kenyans. Upcoming artistes and filmmakers should take advantage of the technology that we have. We need to shoot movies that can showcase what Kenya has to the world. It's a beautiful place to shoot movies.”
