The most heartless employer remains royal media services that owns Citizen Tv, RADIO citizen, Mulembe, Vuuka, Inoroo and such. Makori was a good reporter on matters of education. He has done many reports on matters schools, CBC, KNUT, TSC etc.
We have reports that Makori Ongechi was sacked because his bosses were shocked that he had bought a new car.
Natural justice is such that an employer gives someone atleast 2 or 3 warning letters before TERMINATING his employment. There’s no such thing as ‘warning letter’ in the employment act. The key thing is to grant an employee a fair hearing prior to termination.
But at CITIZEN TV you suddenly find yourself sacked. Yesterday they terminated Makori Ongechi without warning. He woke up, dressed, headed to work only to find TERMINATION waiting for him.
According to blogger Mutai, Makori Ongechi’s bosses frustrated him because of his RELIGION. Ongechi is an SDA adherent. They gave him no option but forced him to work on Saturdays.
If this is true,then there must be more that is happening internally than what they eyes can see or what our ears are hearing.
Many of the reporters are said to be facing constant accusations within the office with some working in fear of losing their jobs,” a source revealed.
It’s not clear where Ongechi is headed to but according to sources, he may have gotten a better offer from a rival station.
Last month, a letter from a disgruntled staff who was fed up with the toxic work environment at Royal Media Services leaked online.
The letter exposed how senior managers led by Kaikai are running the giant media station like a kiosk.
So we won’t hear again ” Makori Ongechi Citizen Tv Nairobi” Shame on you Citizen.
