This comes just a few days after the Royal media radio presenters were issued with redundancy letters that have affected the likes of Syombua Osiany, John Maloba and Himenigilder Mugeni.
It is not known whether the station plans on replacing the fired journalists; however rumor has it that the Royal media employees suffered a 30% pay cut following the outbreak of the Coronavirus pandemic.
As seen on a statement issued by Managing Director, Wachira Waruru wrote;
The unprecedented outbreak of the coronavirus in the world and Kenya, in particular, has had serious repercussions on business, including ours. This reality necessitates that we take difficult but necessary measures to see us through this period.
Each staff will be issued with their individual letter through their supervisor. This reduction is temporary and will be reversed when things return to normal.
Drop Zone will however not be the same without the Ghetto girl, but at least she made a name for herself, right?
