Five of the most well-known radio presenters of Taach FM, a well-liked vernacular radio station that broadcasts in Kelenjin, have been fired.Through social media, one of the presenters, dubbed Chepkam Comedian, revealed that their contracts had been cancelled.She said that on-air gambling, a typical source of income for radio and television stations in Kenya, was the reason she and four other coworkers were sacked from the vernacular radio station.Speaking to Kenyans, Chepkam confirmed the reports of their unprecedented firing, claiming that their contracts were untenable on ethical grounds.“They fired us without a notice claiming we are the reason the radio is not making profits because the listeners are no longer participating in the game,” she stated.
The game which would take place across all five shows hosted by the presenters asked the listeners to try their luck by sending a certain amount of money.
Taach FM is a leading Kalenjin radio station. It broadcasts on 95.1Fm covering the entire North Rift Counties; Uasin Gishu, Nandi, Elgeyo Marakwet, Baringo, Pokot, Trans Nzoia, and its environs.
