Ken Mijungu confirms to have been fired by NTV

NTV news anchor Ken Mijungu has confirmed to have received a termination letter from his employer.

Taking on social media, Mijungu said the axe has indeed fallen at the giant media house after seven years of service.

He noted how the news was not fair describing how his seven years of service have been summed up in a two pages termination letter.

Mijungu however thanks the Almighty and the media house for the opportunity they gave him for all those years.

“The axe fell NTV newsroom 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 NTV Kenya for the opportunity, and thank you for always staying tuned.” Said Ken

The news comes days after the media house announced restructuring plans following the coronavirus.

In a memo circulated to all its employees, they notified them in advance that a mass lay off was set to begin on 3rd July with those affected to receive counselling services in advance.

They also noted the ongoing salary reduction will continue for the next six months up to December 2020.

Newspaper printing which has been a income generating source for them was being channeled to online platforms so as to meet the changing times.
