After Pheona Kengah and Evelyn Wambui were sent home, Royal Media drops the axe on 120 employees

During the infamous digital migration, Standard Media House, Nation Media Group axed a huge number of its employees. Ebru TV and Radio Africa soon followed suit and fired a few more media practitioners.

Now after holding off for two years, Royal Media’s hand has been forced by unfortunate circumstances and 120 employees stand to lose their jobs.

In a memo sent to their employees, the group managing director Wachira Waruru stated” In the past two years we have witnessed various developments within the broadcasting industry that have adversely affected our  business environment.

As a result, the company is left with no choice but to re-organise its operations. That includes rationalization of the various departments.

Unfortunately and regrettably, the action will result in the reduction of our work force through job redundancies.”

Wachira then went on to assure the affected employees that the exercise would be under taken under the provisions of law and the staff would be provided with the necessary support to make this transition easier.

He then went on to add that if the situation changed those who have been axed would be reconsidered.

We have also learned from our sources that winter is coming to Radio Africa as the media house intends on firing more employees.
