Njoroge was fired by the media max owned station in January 2022 just days after he announced he had joined the United Democratic Alliance (UDA) to vie for the Njoro constituency parliamentary in the August 2022 general election.

He said the news of his sacking was delivered to him by the station’s programs controller who asked him not to report to work any longer.

"I received a phone call from the Programs Controller, who asked me not to report to work, permanently. It is because of my affiliations, nothing else. I would have resigned to go and concentrate on politics," he revealed at the time.

Six months later, Njoroge announced that he had joined Kayu FM, a recently established vernacular radio station.
