In October 2019, Bhalo wrote a moving farewell speech to his viewers and fans at K24, following a move by the station to retrench a few staff to cut on cost.


“Hakuna kilichokua na mwanzo kikakosa mwisho. Tarehe 30/10/2019 ilikua siku yangu ya mwisho ya safari yangu kama mwanahabari wa @k24tv kufuatia mabadiliko yanayopania ‘kuboresha’ kampuni hiyo. Shukran kwenu nyote muliofanikisha safari yangu ya miaka 4 katika kituo hicho. Allah akipenda tutaonana kwingine. Daima alipangalo Mungu hakuna wa kulipangua. #Anchor001 @houseofbhalo,” said Ahmed Bhalo.


Early this year in the month of March 2021, Bhalo disclosed that he was fired twice by Mediamax owned TV Station K24 in an encouragement note addressed to Shaffie Weru.

“Mimi nilifutwa kazi mara 2 na @K24Tv. Nimejifunza vitu 2: Kwanza, ukiajiriwa mahali usijisahau na kuchukulia kampuni kama ya babako. Hata kwa babako unaweza futwa. Pili, kuachishwa kazi sio mwisho wa maisha. Kaangu Shaffie kila la kheri” wrote Ahmed Juma Bhalo.
