Major Changes Expected at Radio Africa as It Embarks on Restructuring. To Sack Several Employees



Radio Africa, one of the fastest growing media houses in the Kenya is expected to undergo restructuring, which will see several employees lose their jobs as others secure promotions.

Mr Patrick Quarcoo, the co-founder of the company announced the changes to the employees on Monday and warned that non-performers will be shown the door.

Apparently, the company is spending over half of its revenues on salaries, which has prompted the management to seek ways of reducing the wage bill as it increases efficiency.

The stations that will be most affected include Radio Jambo, Kiss TV, Kiss FM and X-FM but Classic FM might retain all its employees. The changes will also cascade to the Star Newspaper, which is expected to recruit more employees to the sales team.

Since Caroline Mutoko left Kiss FM, the station has been struggling, leaving Classic FM to thrive. The current team may be forced out to welcome a new team.

Maina Kageni, the face of Classic FM, is also expected to be promoted to managerial level.
