Its set to be launched on August 5th 2019.A new Kimeru Radio station Geetu FM.Its their new way of getting the best that has caused confusion in the old Kimeru stations (Meru FM and Muuga FM).Meru FM is set to lose Muthaura Njogu who will be a co director alongside former Tharaka Nithi communication director Jonah Gaicima.To show they mean business and ready to give the bigwigs a run for their money, the new to be opened station has already poached,Mbaka Muriuki – Meru FM , DJ Tim – Muuga fm,Mutungi wa Mwirigi,Merian Muchuka,Muthaura Njogu,Empress Natty,Mukami wa Mugambi,Gacururiga Ka Ameru,Toto Charitie,Ntungata Murangiri,Maxwell Kamunuasi among others.
This move has indeed shaken the entire Meru radio fraternity as it has taken them by surprise.
It should be known that Jonah spearheaded Muuga FM to Meru people with youthful programs that he had introduced then not forgetting the Kithima kia Muoyo which was like a movement in Meru region.His return to the radio is one move that his fans will greatly welcome.
Muthaura Njogu on the other hand, has been heading Meru FM news desk, He has been mentioned adversely in sacking of Mwambia Nkune a while back together with Frank they sacked the guy so that Frank Gituma could get some favours from Tharaka Nithi county which he has received by now.
Mbaka Muriuki is the pioneer of Mwenjoyo program and very good at entertainment, we hope he sticks to that as he was sacked at Muuga FM over laxity and some corruption scandals here and there especially on Mugambi wa Murimi.
Maxwell kamunuasi is big both in news, reporting,political satire and programming.Its not hard to get a place to fix him especially on news as the guy commands huge following both on radio and social media with his #Justinnews.Whether the employer will accept to release him or else counter his offer from Geetu FM remains a question of wait and see.
Gacururiga Ka Ameru on the other hand was sacked by a furious Weru TV and Radio owner Marete who fears competition simply because she had attended an interview at Muuga FM.She was hosting a gospel show which was doing so well but the proprietor used anger to make decisions and for that he will now be left to see his station get a beating of burukenge as they say.
Toto Charitie is a multitalented lady with both TV and Radio skills.She was a camera lady cum late night presenter at Weru FM.She was too sacked for attending an interview at Muuga FM.We would advise the Weru boss that this is a lesson learnt, never do decisions led by pure anger or else you will lose the best talents for your job.
