According to the memo, Radio Africa was forced to make the decision to ensure business continuity.
“As management, we have been faced with a situation that requires a critical business decision to be made to ensure business continuity. We will therefore be reorganizing our internal business operations and in the process, we may declare numerous positions redundant based on the new structure,” the internal memo read in part.
Notable names among those laid off by media outlets include NTV’s Mark Masai and Denis Okari.
Because of their extensive experience in the media industry, the two have established solid reputation.
