According to a story by Business Today, Kaikai was handed his termination letter on Friday last week and he was seen at Nation Centre on Monday casually dressed and appeared to be in the process of clearing with the management.

Business Today also reported that archives managers from the NMG library were also seen busy working on his office computers.

However, speaking exclusively to Pulselive.co.ke, Linus Kaikai refuted the claims saying that he was still at work.

The NTV General Manager who also chairs the Editors’ Guild was early in the month reported to have landed a new job with rival media house, Citizen TV where he was to take over from Farida Karoney as the new Chief Operations Officer at Royal Media Services, following her appointment to the cabinet by President Uhuru Kenyatta.

Linus is said to have fallen out of favor with the Aga Khan owned Nation Media Group after he authorized the live coverage of National Super Alliance (NASA) leader Raila Odinga’s swearing-in as the People’s President on January 30 in Nairobi’s Uhuru Park, defying orders that had earlier on been given by Managing Editor Tom Mshindi.
