State house blocks Linus Kaikai's new job

Tough Times Ahead

According to Business Today, Mr Kaikai’s effort to join the SK Macharia owned Media house, as the Chief Operations Officer has been blocked by State House.

A source who spoke to the BT, on condition of anonymity revealed that, State House went through the RMS vice chairperson Purity Gathoni Macharia to block Kaikai from joining the Media House.

It’s also alleged that, State House had a hand in Kaikai’s exit from NMG, after he failed to obey orders not to live stream Raila’s mock inauguration.

“State House was furious that Kaikai was getting even a more influential position in a big media house even after he took part in what was clearly a treasonable affair. But they knew SK Macharia would be difficult to convince following the shutdown of Citizen TV and Inooro TV that saw him move to court seeking compensation. So they devised a way of convincing his wife who as vice chair runs the media house’s day to day affairs,” the source told BT.

Reports also indicate that RMS top management has settled on  Radio and TV Production Director Fred Afune as Karoney’s replacement.
