Full List of Journalist Fired By KISS TV… Including John Sibi Okumu

August 16, 2013

Troubled TV station, KISS TV, has sacked all its news staff, as it prepares to shut down. This is the first step in its relaunching, which should take place in coming days. 
According to Ghafla Kenya, KISS TV will now be known as Blaze TV, a purely music and entertainment channel.

Apparently, members of staff were this week summoned for a brief meeting, where they were informed of their contract termination, and issued pay cheques. 
Among those sent home is John Sibi Okumu of JSO@7, who is reported to have received a Sh2.5 million cheque. Dennis Okari, another top journalist, is said to have received Sh1.4 million as his termination money.

Sad day to part ways with my friends and colleagues at Kiss TV. I wish you all the best. #MadLove
