Celebrated Radio Comedian and Lang'ata Parliamentary hopeful Jalang'o opted to walk his fans down the memory lane to the day her was fired at Milele FM.
I was sacked on Friday, by Monday I had 8 job offers- Jalang’o on Milele FM Firing
He was sacked even after taking a 50% pay cut due to the financial effects of Covid-19
According to Jalang’o he was sacked even after taking a 50% pay cut due to the financial effects of Covid-19. He was among the long list of journalists who were fired by Mediamax back in June 2020.
In his narration Jalas mentioned that in a span of three days he had already gotten 8 job offers but it took only one call from Radio Africa Boss Patrick Quarcoo for him to join Kiss 100.
He went on to describe Radio Africa as his home basing on the fact that his journey in the media industry kick started at Kiss 100 a few year ago.
“They first gave Us a pay Cut and I accepted the 50% cut, but Corona did not affect our show coz were making more money that time but it’s never about you alone. Tukavutana Kidogo then I said am leaving and by that time I had plans to terminate my contract because I had refused to take another term.
Wandera the HR, we talked almost the all Night nikimwambia if it’s becoming a problem. I’m good to go. So I told Alex in the Morning that I’m not reporting to work… he was like what? He called, saying whatever it takes just come we work and I said it not possible.
I thought it was done with Radio, I was sacked like, Friday, on Monday I had like 8 job offers. Radio kama Nane, Afune wants me back at Hot 96, sijui who wants me where”
“Then one call and one call alone, Patrick Quarcoo, he told me I need you tomorrow in my office and told him sir I will come. I reach there he has a contract and he says you will start working and that time Kibe had left.
That time I had started Jalang’o TV and I asked them to allow me to do my staff. And PQ said as long as you are here daily, do whatever you want to do” said Jalang’o.
On June 22, Jalang'o announced his departure from Milele FM with a message that reads.
