Fired the Entire Newsroom

In June 2020, the news anchor was among employees who were fired by Mediamax based on a redundancy notice issued by the media house on May 21st, 2020.

At that particular time, the station fired its entire newsroom via a text message that was sent to the employees by the human resources manager.

“I am contacting you with regards to the redundancy notice issued on 21st of May 2020. The notice period has expired. Unfortunately, your position has been affected by way of redundancy. I would like to invite you to Emory Hotel in Kileleshwa tomorrow, Monday 22nd at 8:55am to discuss what this means to your employment. When you get to the hotel kindly ask for me. We thank you for your indulgence and cooperation in this matter,” the message read.

Upon receiving the news, Karimi bid goodbye to her viewers at K24 with a message that says; “Halo Twitter Fam Orange heart. It’s been an absolute pleasure gracing your screens at @K24Tv Thank you for all the love and support! It’s time for bigger, better things ahead,”.
