The Nation Media Group has announced major management changes even as the company continues to face a government crackdown over coverage of NASA leader Raila Odinga.

The changes were announced by the Company's Editor-in-Chief Tom Mshindi, who also acts as the Chief Operations Officer at NMG.

The new staff changes will be effected immediately and have come only a day after the company's former CEO Joe Muganda left the Aga-Khan owned media house.

Muganda has moved to Vivo Energy as Managing Director even as the government continues with a crackdown on the media.
