eNCA's Late Nite News with Loyiso Gola loses comedian David Kibuuka who joins Trevor Noah at The Daily Show on Comedy Central as writer.

"Thank you, Loy."

eNCA's Late Nite News with Loyiso Gola is suffering yet another creative and on-screen setback with the loss of brilliant comedian David Kibuuka who won't be returning to the weekly satirical faux news show when the new season start on the 24-hour TV news channel and e.tv.

The 34-year old Ugandan born David Kibuuka is joining South African comedian Trevor Noah when he takes over from Jon Stewart as host of The Daily Show from 28 September on Comedy Central (DStv 122).

The brilliant stand-up comedian David Kibuuka appeared on the Late Nite News with Loyiso Gola as the hilariously outspoken, off-script foreign correspondent the past few seasons and was a mainstain as the show cycled through comedians and segment replacements the past few years as Riaad Moosa and Tats Nkonzo left. 

David Kibuuka will join the writing staff of The Daily Show.

eNCA has not yet announced a starting date for the new season of Late Nite News with Loyios Gola, besides playing on-air promos saying "returning soon".

Meanwhile Loyiso Gola has become a contributor to the similar The Weekly with Charlie Pickerin, an Australian satirical news show on Australia's ABC which is currently on, and which is part of the reason for the delay of the new season of LNN.
