The famous King of Meru radio Jonah Majau Gaicima has quit county govt and now focused in going back to media business.Jonah, whose career in media started over 10 years ago at Muuga FM,had taken a short stint at Tharaka Nithi County where he was the communication director.Jonah will now be a co director together with Muthaura Njogu who is already serving the last month at Meru FM.The duo young and vibrant guys will be leading Geetu FM which is being launched between July and August.
The upcoming Tharaka Nithi Communications Director(Fedis Karimi) who is wife to Meru FM boss Frank Gituma Makathimo has already taken over the role.She used to work at Mediamax-traffic department, shortly after snatching Frank from his earlier marriage. She later joined modern Komarock hospital owned by Dr Nyamu as a sales rep, before the husband (Frank) lobbied for this job, in exchange for media protection, after information on Gaicima’s resignation.
The lady is still keeping a low profile in Governors’s events, still thinking of how to approach local journalists who may not welcome her warmly, considering that she is from Meru county and from sales department.It beats us how someone from Meru county be the Tharaka Nithi communications director as if Tharaka Nithi people are dimwits.Anyway this isn’t a surprise to us given that TNC had earlier offered Kennedy Muriithi the same job only to rescind the decision after public outcry and gave him political analyst and Jonah took the Director role.Kennedy also resigned almost a year ago.
Geetu FM is believed to be the next big thing in the Kimeru media industry given that Jonah who is well versed with the community and political machinations in the area is taking over the morning breakfast show.Our informer tells us that the recruitment for other employees is at high gear as the station is to launch between 1st July to 1st August.We wish Geetu FM all the best as they get into the media business….
