Thursday, May 28, 2020 – K24 news anchor, Eric Njoka, is among journalists that could be rendered jobless in a month’s time when the proposed merger between the Kenyatta owned media house and KTN is formalized.
Earlier this week, Njoka took to his Instagram to vent his frustrations accusing the President ofnot giving a shit about his employees.
He went on to reveal that they have not been paid for the past two months, and further took issue with a 50% pay cut, which some employees challenged in court.
“KTN News or Standard Group has officially bought some programs on K24 TV. So, K24 staff and MediaMax as a whole will be declared redundant in a month’s time…”
“They are getting rid of every person that you know, every face that you know on K24 TV, every producer, anchor, reporter, news editor that you know,” Njoka said.
“We are working for a President who does not care. It seems we are children of a lesser God because no one is listening to us,” Njoka continued.
His rant landed him in trouble with MediaMax bosses who apparently asked him to apologize.
However, a visibly drunk Njoka took to Instagram again and stated that he told his supervisors that whatever he posts on social media are his private views.
“Today my supervisor came to me and said what you said about your boss and company is a breach of contract and you need to apologize.
“I partly apologized but I never owned up to any wrongdoing,” he said, adding that: “I told him is that is my private social media.”
He went on to admit that he was drunk and bragged about the expensive brands of whisky he drinks.
“Nimekunywa Maji ya Uzima and I feel rejuvenated, ama mlikuwa mnataka kunipatia kitu ingine nikunywe?
“And if you actually feel you wanna come my way, sijakunywa kitu and by the way, I don’t do Konyagi, I only do Glenfiddich, Captain Morgan and if worse comes to worse na situation ni mbaya sana I do Kenya cane.
“Everybody thinks that I’m high, every day they come here they think I’m high.”
“I am an angry man and I´m not isolated. Tutadeal na wewe hapo nyuma ya tent. I know who I am and I know where I am at the moment.
So if you want to come my way, kuja polepole. Anyway, Kenyans only think about themselves and no one else. I have come so so so far, to take sh*t from people. “
Just don´t cross my line,” declared Njoka.
