Stephen Letoo, a Citizen TV reporter has confirmed that he has now recovered and is safe and sound after employees of the Royal Media company which is the parent company of Citizen TV claimed to have suffered food poisoning on Christmas Day.
Few days ago, a staff with the Royal Media Services which owns among other stations Citizen TV, Inooro Tv among others succumbed to an illness suspected to be caused by food provided to the staff by the company.
According to a Memo sent by the Managing Director Wachira Waruru, Royal Media had contracted a private catering company to provide the staff with food during this Christmas season.
“We are deeply shocked and saddened to inform the public that one staff member has unfortunately succumbed to the illness attributed to the suspected food poisoning,” he said.
Adding: “In keeping with holiday period working arrangements, the RMS engaged a private food catering company to provide meals for staff working during the Christmas shift,” he said.
Letoo on Wednesday evening after two days of silence wrote on his Facebook page to confirm that he is now okay – a message understood by many that he may have been one of the victims but with medical services he recovered.
“Now I’m fine,“ Letoo said.
