K24 journalists who have been working in the Newsroom have been shown the door! This was revealed by several journalists who went on to announce their exit from the renown media house.
As seen on social media, the entire newsroom team was sent for a text message informing them; that the media house no longer needed their services. The human resource manager Maureen Wandera went on to leave a text saying;
“I am contacting you with regards to the redundancy notice issued on 21st of May 2020. The notice period has expired. Unfortunately, your position has been affected by way of redundancy. I would like to invite you to Emory Hotel in Kileleshwa tomorrow, Monday 22nd at 8:55am to discuss what this means to your employment. When you get to the hotel kindly ask for me. We thank you for your indulgence and cooperation in this matter.”
Rumor has it that K24’s management decided to do away with their old team as they brought in 4 new faces believed to be the stations future.
Meet the new team
As much as this might have been hard for the old team; a new post shared on k24’a Twitter page confirmed the rumors were true as they introduced the faces.
The new team is made of Ahmed Abuller who had previously been working at Switch TV. Allan Owino poached from TV47 while Wanjiru Maina; and Daniel Kituu joined from Switch TV.
In yet another post, Wanjiru Maina and Allan Owino already started their job as they took over #TheDailyBrief early this morning. Hyping the new team, K24 tweeted;
Welcome to #TheDailyBrief with @ComOwino and @amshiromaina as they bring you current affairs and news as it happens. We would like to know what’s happening around you. Talk to us on #K24DailyBrief
Ahmed Abduller and Daniel Kituu will take over the Swahili segment as seen on yet another tweet that read;
