NTV’s General Manager Linus Kaikai is reported to have landed a new job with rival media house, Citizen TV.

According to Business Today, Kaikai in his new capacity, is set to take over from Farida Karoney as the new Chief Operations Officer at Royal Media Services, following her nomination to the cabinet by President Uhuru Kenyatta.

Linus who currently chairs the Editors Guild is said to have fallen out with the Aga Khan owned Nation Media Group after he authorized the live coverage of National Super Alliance (NASA) leader Raila Odinga’s swearing-in as the People’s President on January 30 in Nairobi’s Uhuru Park.

The move by Kaikai could have been triggered by a recent restructuring by the Editor-in-Chief Tom Mshindi that saw him sidelined to administrative duties and several other senior journalists retrenched.
