Two months after he was relocated to Nairobi as a correspondent by CNN, Madowo has been elevated from CNN’s Nairobi-based correspondent to the network’s international correspondent.

The good news comes after he opened up about his anxiety for the last couple of days. In an article published by CNN, the 34-year-old journalist disclosed that his grandmother is hospitalized, and every time he receives a call from home, his heart sinks.
“Every time I see a call from home, my heart sinks. I always fear that they’re ringing to say that my grandmother has died. She has been on a ventilator for four weeks, and my anxiety is near breaking point. The dreaded call could come at any time: Covid-19. Again. Even at 96, my Kenyan grandmother was among hundreds of millions in the developing world who was not vaccinated until recently because rich nations have hoarded most of the available shots,” he wrote partly.
Through the article, Larry poured his heart out, expressing disappointment on how the Covid-19 vaccine has been distributed globally. In the article, Larry also pointed out that Africa has received the fewest vaccines globally so far.
“The acute shortage of doses for the world’s poorest people has been called “vaccine apartheid,” “greed” and a “catastrophic moral failure.” Yet the public shaming has made little real difference, and Africa has received the fewest vaccines in the globe so far. Around half of all Americans are now fully vaccinated. Here in Kenya, that figure stands at just 1.1% of the population,” he added.
The Kenyan-born Madowo started his broadcasting career at Kenya Television Network at the age of 20. When announcing his then job at CNN, Madowo expressed his joy to be working from home again. “Madowo said he enjoyed reporting from the US and around the world, but it’s a real privilege to return to covering Africa at such a critical time in Kenya and around the continent.” “I have long admired CNN International’s award-winning coverage, and I’m honoured to be joining such a talented team. I look forward to sharing the full spectrum of life in one of the most dynamic parts of the world with CNN’s global audiences,” he said. Madowo previously served as the BBC Africa Business Editor.
