Media Poaching : Blow to K24 as political reporters join Citizen TV

Published

on

K24 has suffered yet another blow after political affairs reporters Jane Chemutai Goin and Apollo Kamau ditched the Mediamax Network-owned station for Citizen TV.

The move leaves the station with virtually no political journalists after Duncan Khaemba, Anders Ihachi and Chris Thairu were shown the door in November 2015 when the media house retrenched about 70 journalists. Khaemba and Thairu were later hired by KTN.

Senior news anchor Richard Kagoe, who also used to report on politics and current affairs, also quit to join BBC in August this year.

Apart from covering political events, the two also doubled as parliamentary reporters.

At Citizen TV, the two are set to bolster its political coverage and also fill the void left by Jacque Maribe, who was banned by High Court judge James Wakiaga from appearing on TV as part of the bail sanctions that saw her released from remand after she was charged alongside her fiancee Joseph Irungu for the murder of business lady Monica Kimani.

Goin started her career as a reporter at Capital FM before joining K24. On the other hand, Kamau previously worked with KBC and TBN/Family Media before joining K24 in September 2007 as a current affairs/political reporter.

K24 also recently lost rising business reporter Brenda Kerubo.

Why celebrity couple DJ Mo and Size 8 no longer post about their lives on YouTube

Published

on

Last year, Size 8 and DJ Mo announced that they have launched a Vlog dubbed the The Muraya aimed at documenting their life.

The Vlog, which was on YouTube, went on to impress Kenyans as many got to see the life of the two and their daughter.

But after just several months, they stopped posting and never bothered to communicate to fans why.

A curious fan took to social media to ask DJ Mo why they are no longer posting on YouTube.

According to Mo, they moved from YouTube after landing a deal with streaming service Viusasa which has been buying locally produced visual content.

It’s not clear though why Mo and Size 8 haven’t been promoting the show on their social media pages.

My wife was cheating, Shaffie says on embarrassing Nax-Vegas photos

Published

on

Kiss FM radio host Shaffie Weru has opened up on an ugly incident that left him embarrassed during the Easter holiday in 2012.

Opening up for a second time since then, Shaffie said he was going through a lot during that time.

During the Easter weekend during the NaxVegas a drunk Shaffie was frog-matched away from the venue by bounces for causing a raucous.

Many people don’t understand what I was going through then- Shaffie comes clean on embarrassing Nax-Vegas incident

Rumours stated that he was hitting on a chick who was accompanied by his boyfriend, and the boyfriend felt ‘insulted’ and so some confrontation began, and the bouncers came in and dragged him out of the venue.

Shaffie disclosed that he was at a bad place emotionally at the time of that event and would get himself super drunk to forget his issues with baby mama Joan.

“Many people don’t understand what I was going through then. But I know what I was going through then. At that time nilikuwa na beef mbaya sana na mama Nia 2 to 3 years in our relationship. There were rumours that she was cheating, I know people look at me and think I can’t get played, I get played. I was living with her and I have given my all. I had just split from Debbie Asila and had gotten myself in this situation. The grass is not always greener on the other side, it was semi-arid. Things were not going right, we were not feeling each other, and there was a lot of pressure. She was way younger than me, she did what she did and I did what I did,” Shaffie said on the Chipukeezy Show.

He added that he turned to drinking to easy the pain.

“I threw myself into partying because out there, there was acceptance, I was hiding my grief and everything. I was going through a lot and I fell into alcohol and other stuff it was crazy bro,” Shaffie explained.
