Chris Obore’s Job At Stake, Ssepuuya’s Firing Details Emerge
Reports coming in indicate that a high level decision has been taken to fire Chris Obore, the investigations editor at Daily Monitor.
Earlier, his friends had revealed that Obore had resigned to avoid an embarrassment of a possible sacking.
But contacted by Chimpreports.com, Obore denied quitting the publication. “I have not resigned and I am not about to resign,” he said.
Asked whether he was aware of being sacked, he responded: “I don’t know. (Laughs) May be if I have been fired without my knowledge (laughs.)”
We also contacted the publication’s Managing Editor Daniel Kalinaki who affirmed he was yet to see Obore’s resignation letter.
However, knowledgeable sources say, Obore’s days at the vibrant newspaper are numbered.
“Obore is going. It’s just a matter of time before Nation Media top management announces a new reshuffle that will kick him out,” a source told this news-breaking website.
Obore is very critical of government in his news articles, on KFM radio talk shows and NTV’s 4th Estate programme.
Meanwhile, more details have emerged on why Executive Editor David Ssepuuya was fired.
A source said it was not only about the sharp rise of defamation suits against the newspaper but also reports of underperformance rattled his bosses in Nairobi.
“All the Nairobi bosses who included Kiboro and Odindo wondered: who recruited this guy? Then the former Managing Director Gitahi Githinji ran away and former Human Resource Manager Martha was sacked, partly because of this,” a source revealed.
