Nation Media Group (NMG) has fired NTV news anchor Ken Mijungu.
The company on Wednesday July 1, 2020 through a zoom meeting notified its employees of its planned reorganization that could lead to mass lay offs.
On Thursday July 2, 2020, the purge began from the Newspaper section, where senior editors and managers were affected.
The big casualties on Thursday include Nation Newspaper Division Managing Director Francis Munywoki, partnerships & projects manager and long-serving education editor David Aduda, Business Daily Managing Editor Ng’ang’a Mbugua and Daily Nation News Editor Francis Wanyonyi Wambilianga.
Reports indicated that the company was to shift its gear on NTV today, and the axe has fallen on Mijungu.
Taking to his official twitter account this morning, Mijungu notified his fans that he was among those that were affected by the axe that fell on the NTV Newsroom.
Mijungu noted that he had been given a two-paged termination letter that summed up his seven-year journey at the company.
He thanked NTV for giving him the opportunity, and thanked God for the journey, citing that people live to fight another day.
“The axe fell @NTVnewsroom and I was on its way. 7 years in those corridors summed up in a two page letter of termination. We live to fight another day. Thanks to God, He remains the greatest, thank you @ntvkenya for the opportunity and thank you for always staying tuned,” reads his message.Do you have any story you would like to share?
