The mother of one joined K24 in September 2018, after making a surprise exit from Standard Group Owned station KTN.
Her exit comes in the wake of a recent announcement by K24’s mother company Mediamax that it intended to fire some of its employees owing to the tough economic times caused by the outbreak of Covid-19.
“Mediamax Network Limited regrets to advice; that owing to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic that has had adverse effects on its revenue streams, it shall reorganize its staff structure ad abolish some positions as part of its cost optimization measures in the wake of its new business realities. In view of the above, the services of some of its employees will be rendered superfluous thereby necessitating the termination of their employment on account of redundancy,” said a statement by Mediamax.
In October last year, the Kenyatta family owned station showed the door to some of its top and long serving editors after announcing a plan to have more than 160 employees fired over tough economic times.
UPDATE: Pulse Live Kenya has since learnt that Betty was fired from K24 after being declared redundant in far-reaching changes that will see the station close down its news division.
