A leading Coast based radio station has come out strongly rubbishing ongoing rumours that it has been sold out.
In a statement to newsrooms Tuesday, Radio kaya Managing director Rose Mwakwere said that though its eight presenters and news reporters have left the leading station, Radio Kaya has already realigned itself and its business as usual.
She said the rumours traversing the region are ill motivated clearly stating that the station was strong and would not be shaken by the mass exodus.
Those who left the station were mid-morning presenter Mgeni Shaban aka Sister Sharniez, drive show Presenter Gunga kitsao aka PPO, Fatuma Mwangala aka Toto bomba la Kaya, Bahati Ngazi, Teddy Nyae Watinga Cyrus Ngonyo, Mariam Gao and Michael Otieno.
“It is through such rumours that we have come out to state clearly our position that we remain an independent top Mijikenda radio station and we have not been bought by any company,” read part of the statement signed by Mrs. Mwakwere.
The eight presenters and reporters tendered their resignation in April and left the station joining Asena FM formerly Pilipili FM.
The new Asena FM wholly owned by Mediamax Limited seem to be desperately fighting for the vast Mijikenda audience and employing poor gimmicks in getting a potion.
However, Radio kaya management has wished its former team well in it’s future endeavours.
The station has been forced to run a 24 hour news alert reassuring their loyal vast audience that the station remains top independent Mijikenda Coastal radio station and it has not been sold.
