NTV senior political reporter Richard Chacha has come out to dispel rumours that he had been fired. Blogger Robert Alai this week published a story claiming that Chacha had been sacked by General Manager Linus Kaikai for being ‘crippled and unproductive’.
Richard Chacha was left paralyzed from the waist down, after a 2012 accident which also saw Linus Kaikai hospitalized for a while.
Together with fellow journalists Ephantus Mwangi, Frida Kirema and Emmanuel Talam; Chacha and Kaikai were heading to a fundraiser in Narok. He was the driver of the car they were in.
While confirming he’s still at Nation Media, Chacha posted on social media, “Hey guys, I am still at work… I will let you know if and when I am leaving.”
Alai had also claimed that Debarl Ainea has also been shown the door as part of the cost saving measures.
