Radio presenter Felix Odiwour aka Jalang’o has quit Milele FM (owned by Mediamax) after failing to agree with the HR department on the terms of employment.

On Monday, Mediamax fired many K24 employees, including popular news anchors and presenters through an SMS.

This comes after Mediamax said it would cut salaries of employees by 50%. Moreover, there were claims that some employees had not been paid salaries for two months.

According to Jalang’o, Mediamax has also been affected by the pandemic and had to reduce work force to cut down on operational costs.

However, Jalang’o said he was never going to work at Milele FM again. His last day working at Milele FM was June 19.

“I was not at work because we did not agree on a lot of things and terms and even as we speak my HR had me on hold still discussing terms of employment,” the presenter said on Monday.

“Unfortunately, we didn’t agree and just like today I won’t be at work tomorrow or any other day. In short last friday was my last day at Milele FM.”

Jalang’o thanked fans and friends who supported him throughout his journey as a radio presenter.

“My brother Alex Mwakideu, keep shining and being the best. All my colleagues at Mediamax both at Milele, K24, Kameme, Emoo, Maiyan and Meru FM, I’ll forever love you,”

“To my fans and every listener, thank you for tuning in. Like we say, itambe Milele,” he said.
