On Monday, June 22nd, Mediamax laid off more than a hundred employees, through short messages sent in the dead of night on the grounds of redundancies.

Radio presenter Jalang’o will no longer be on Milele FM’s breakfast show.

Through a post he posted on social media, the comedian said that last Friday was his last day on air.

Jalang’o said he wasn’t going back to the Medimax owned radio station because he didn’t agree on various terms with the HR. “Today has been a very amazing day and a sad day with everyone at my work Place at Mediamax ...Covid hit hard and everyone has to have their belts tight and unfortunately Mediamax has been hit too...I was not at work today because we had not agreed on a lot of things and terms and even as we speak my HR had me on hold still discussing terms of employment...Unfortunately we didn't agree..So just like today I won't be at work tomorrow or any other day...In short Last Friday was my last day at Milele Fm and I want to thank everyone who supported me and every fan who was with that to the point we became the most popular and No 1 Radio Station in the country”

Jalango didn’t forget to thank his loyal fans and Ex colleagues;

1. I want to thank the Mediamax management for the opportunity they gave me and I will forever be grateful.

2. To my brother @alex_mwakideu you know to my last blood I love you! Keep shining and being the best
