Waiguru’s health minister resigns

Published

on

Kirinyaga County Health executive Agnes Gachoki has resigned, citing frustrations from Governor Anne Waiguru.

Dr Gachoki tendered her resignation on Thursday evening. The minister, who has 10 years’ experience in medicine, said she was unhappy with the way the executive was handling the health department.

“I can’t work under the current administration because it has been frustrating me when carrying out my official duties,” she said.

“My advice to the governor on how to improve the Health sector was ignored and I always felt very disturbed.”

Ms Waiguru could not be reached for comment.

Efforts to get a comment from the deputy governor, Peter Ndambiri, were also unsuccessful as his phone went unanswered.

Last year, while launching a programme for making linen for patients at Kerugoya hospital, Ms Waiguru described Dr Gachoki as one of her most active officers.

NMG CEO’s message

A memo by the Nation Media Group’s CEO Stephen Gitagama earlier in the week had outlined that the media company is keen to retain only those with the relevant skills and expertise.

“The Group seeks to radically change its business model from print advertising and physical reader copy to digital advertising, ePaper subscription and content-driven reader revenue with the objective of establishing leadership in the mobile publishing landscape in Africa while exploring other new revenue streams in the experiential and technology space.

“This will require retooling and resourcing the Group with relevant skill sets critical for success in the new business environment. Regrettably this will result in reduction of our workforce effective Friday July 3, 2020,” the memo read in part.

Its official! Jalang’o to replace Andrew Kibe at Kiss 100

Published

on

Forme Milele FM and Comedian Felix Odwuor aka Jalang’o has conformed that he is replacing Andrew Kibe at Kiss 100.

Speaking to Andrew Kibe on his Bonga na Jalas YouTube series, the comedian confirmed he had been given an offer from Kiss 100 to co-host the Kiss Breakfast alongside radio queen Kamene Goro.

He added that he will begin working on Monday next week.

“Yes I’m taking over your job. This job is mine and you are handing it over to me and I didn’t know that you are leaving, and I didn’t fire you.

“You left yourself and I have been given an offer to take over your spot…. Guys Monday next week, Kamene and Jalas,” said Jalang’o.

Speaking on his exit from Kiss 100, Andrew Kibe said that as soon as Covid-19 hit, he had a misunderstanding with his boss at Radio Africa.

“This is what happened, just when Covid hit mimi na mdosi wangu tukakosana na unajua mdosi wangu ni nani. Huyu msee aliniangalia na madharau,” stated Kibe.

He also mentioned that he gave a three months’ notice which elapsed on June 30, 2020 because the job did not make any sense to him anymore.

“I had to give a three month notice and say by the time June 30 comes, that’s my last day. I gave the notice while you were still working at Milele.

“Ulikuwa pale kwa hashtag kila asubuhi tuko na wewe Alex and Jalas, Kibe and Kamene mimi nikaenda nikasema I don’t want this job anymore it doesn’t make any sense to me,” explained Andrew Kibe.

He added that no one knew he was leaving, including his co-host and longtime friend Kamene Goro who got to know of the development a few days to his final day.

“You didn’t know. I didn’t tell anybody anything. I didn’t reveal even to Kamene amekam kujua juzi tu, she is devastated but she knew just the other day,” added Kibe.
