Taking to Instagram, Jalang’o revealed that he has been having discussions with the powers that be at Mediamax but their talks did not bear any fruit.

“I was not at work today because we had not agreed on a lot of things and terms and even as we speak my HR had me on hold discussing the terms of my employment,” he wrote.

He went on to add that his last day at the media house was Friday, June 19 and went on to thank the people that have supported him during his 2-year stint.

“Unfortunately, we didn’t agree. So just like that I won’t be at work tomorrow or any other day. I want to thank everyone who supported me and every fan who was with us to the point that we became the most popular no 1 radio station in the country,” Jalang’o added.

His announcement comes; barely hours; after it emerged that Mediamax had fired all its newsroom staff and spared only 2.

According to a source, the employees who were shown the door refused to agree to 50% pay cut that that had been proposed by the media house. Interestingly, they even laid off people who had accepted the 50% pay cut.
