Outgoing Kiss FM morning show host Kamene Goro has explained why she is leaving the radio station after speculations she was fired.
Speaking in an interview after her last show, Kamene said her contract had lapsed and she didn't find the need to renew it.
She said allegations that she was a regular absentee at work were brought up because of the period she was ailing.
“I have seen these stories, the truth is I was not fired, my contract lapsed and there was no need to move forward with it.
“I was however sick last year and I followed the protocol, gave in the letters, I never showed up at work sometimes but it is because I was sick. I also never showed up at work intoxicated because I run the desk and you can't run the desk when you are drunk,” Kamene stated.
The celebrated radio host also shared her opinion on Sheila Kwamboka who is taking her spot saying she was experienced and good to take her place.
"Sheila is a great lady, I have known her for a while she is very seasoned and I am happy for her and wish her all the best," she said.

Jalango's legacy immortalised in new book [Details]
Kenyan author Eugine Kabasa is set to release his latest book, "The Making of an Icon: The inspiring journey of Jalang'o," which details the life of media personality-turned-politician and current Langata MP Jalang'o.
The publication's foreword has been penned by NTV news anchor Brian George.
The book, which is based on Jalang'o's life, covers his humble beginnings in Homa Bay, his struggles in school, and his rise to fame as a radio presenter, comedian, and currently a Member of Parliament.
"It presents the major life lessons that one can take away from specific incidences of Jalang'os eventful career. In the book, I make a commentary of how his story is a perfect example of defying odds and making it where normally you wouldn't," the author said.
It also delves into his journey as a fisherman and fishmonger, his time spent working blue-collar jobs, and his breakthrough role on Citizen TV's Papa Shirandula.
Born and raised in Homa Bay, Jalang'o comes from a humble background, as his parents were farmers.
He has three brothers and one sister, and his father passed away on the day he signed his first officially contract as a radio presenter at Radio Africa Group's Kiss 100.
Despite the loss, Jalang'o persevered and went on to become one of the most popular and recognizable faces in the Kenyan media industry and now Lang'ata MP.
Jalang'o's educational journey was not easy, he scored 442 out of 700 in his KCPE, and was selected to join Maseno school, but his father couldn’t raise the required school fees.
Eventually, he was admitted to Barkanyango Secondary School, and later transferred to Nyagoma Boys High School where he scored a C+ in his KCSE.

Obinna speaks out after 3rd serious assault on 2mbili by baby mama
Comedian 2mbili is nursing serious injuries following an alleged physical assault by his baby mama.
According to a video shared by Comedian Oga Obinna, 2mbili is seen seriously bleeding as he explains that it was the third time the incident was happening.
Comedian Obinna said efforts to get 2mbili whose real name is Andrew Duncan Oduor to talk about the abusive relationship have been futile as the funnyman has been unwilling to speak up publicly.
“The number of physical abuses on 2mbili have been going up for a while now, 2mbili kids sometimes come here and my son told me his kids told him that their mother almost stabbed their father and even hit him with a glass,” Obinna narrated.
Obinna revealed that the abuse is sometimes turned on 2mbili's kids with the aim of hurting him adding that reports to authorities have bore no fruits.
“I've decided to speak before it's too late also maybe one day he may have the courage to talk about it but for now just know that boychild needs all the help and love he can get to stay strong for the kids.
"Nobody is there for boychild!! We have gone even to the police station plus GBV offices and NOTHING WAS DONE,” Obinna said.
Reacting to the story, comedian YY said 2mbili once covered up being burnt by hot water by lying that he had been attacked by goons. YY said it was important for men to know when to leave toxic relationships.
Elizabeth Sonia's message to Mr Seed after accusing him of being a deadbeat dad
Days after Mr Seed’s baby mama, actress Elizabeth Sonia, threatened to sue him for child support, the Mombasa-based actress has now issued a message to her baby daddy.
The 'Kovu' actress has asked Mr Seed to publicly disown his son if he is unwilling to support the child, complaining that his absence in the boy's life is cruel.
Sonia went on to accuse the ‘Only One’ crooner of favouritism, saying that he treats his wife Nimo and their son Gold better than he treats his son Junior.
“Uchungu Nimo akijifungua aliskia ndio pia mimi niliskia. Unavyompenda Gold, mpende pia Junior. Kama huezi, leo mbele ya watu ukatae uhusiano kesho aje kuwa Diamond Platnumz au Obama watu wakusute wakmwambie ulimruka mwanao mwenyewe hadharani.
"(Nimo and I both experienced the pains of childbirth. You should love Gold and Junior in the same way and if you're not willing to, then disown Junior publicly. He may become the next Diamond Platnumz or Obama and people will remind you that you denied your son in public),” Sonia stated in an interview with Pwani FM on Monday.
Sonia earlier said Mr Seed has not been providing for his son for the last seven years, adding that the last time the singer saw his son was in 2019.
“For the last 7 years I have written such paragraphs and deleted them but I am tired. I want you to help me raise Junior, not send me money like you are doing me a favour and only when I ask or shout. The only upkeep I take from you is school fees and it’s never on time,” she posted on Instagram.
She further revealed that the last amount Mr Seed sent her was Sh5,000 but he requested that she return Sh2,000.
Gachagua makes fun of Samidoh over Karen Nyamu drama
Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua has urged mugithi singer Samuel Muchoki, better known as Samidoh, to sort issues around his family and baby mama.
DP Gachagua was referencing the drama that ensued after Senator Karen Nyamu got into a confrontation with Samidoh’s wife Edith ‘Edday’ Nderitu in Dubai in December 2022.
"Wewe Samidoh ni rafiki yangu, na unajua vile tunakupenda na nyimbo zako lakini kuna pahali unatuangusha kidogo," the DP said.
This loosely translates to (Samidoh is a good friend of mine and we love his songs but he is causing us embarrassment.)
Gachagua also made reference to an African proverb saying, "Samidoh needs to control his people because as the African proverb says 'an elephant never tires carrying its tusks."
Speaking during the burial ceremony of Trade Cabinet Secretary Moses Kuria’s sister Pauline Nyokabi, Rigathi said that if things spiral out of control the government would tighten the allowance extended to him to travel abroad for shows.
"We will discipline you. We will not allow you to go overseas or we will limit you to going alone," the DP added, sending the mourners into a laughing frenzy.
On January 18, Senator Nyamu appeared before United Democratic Alliance (UDA) party Disciplinary Committee to explain what happened in the altercation between her and Samidoh’s wife.
TikToker explains why she showed Kenyans the number plates of her new car
Kenyan TikToker Alma Mutheu started the year on a high note and she has now acquired a new car after many months of toiling.
Alma took photos of her sleek ride and shared them with her fans stating: "Someone once told me that the strongest weapon is silence and hard work! And when the time is right, the Lord himself makes it happen! Thank you God for my first ride."
Thee Pluto and Moya David were among the first Kenyan celebrities to congratulate the TikToker for her achievement.
Fans, however, noticed that she didn't mind the plates on the car being seen and some proceeded to speculate on whether she owns the car or not.
In an interview with YouTuber Commentator 254, Alma explained why she didn't hide the number plate like other celebrities normally do when unveiling their rides.
"People knew that I already had the car since I always go out with it for shoots but I honestly didn't know that photos of my car would go viral after sharing them.
"Mimi sikuona kama kuficha number plate ingesaidia kusema tu ukweli. I just hope hakuna mtu atanikidnap. (I don't think it was necessary to hide the number plates, to be honest, and I'm hoping that I won't be kidnapped in that case)," said Alma.
She added that she was aware that the plates were visible before sharing the images on her social media handles but it doesn't bother her.
Alma has now joined the league of fellow content creators whose lifestyles have drastically changed due to their line of work, these include Sammy Kioko, Eve Mungai, and Vinnie Baite after acquiring her first car.
