Kamene Gor: Scanty details have revealed why KISS FM breakfast show presenter Kamene Goro parted ways with her bosses.
Kamene, who is set to host her last show on Friday, January 27th, 2023, will be replaced by renowned radio presenter Sheila Kwamboka alias Kwambox.
Meanwhile, Sources close to the Radio Africa-led group claimed that the bosses had grown tired of Kamene’s misdemeanour of absconding duty on flimsy grounds.
“Kamene made a regular habit of not showing up to work, and she could give all manner of excuses most of the time, saying she was sick, and later she would upload photos and videos on social media of someone in a totally different situation,”
a source revealed to Nairobinews.
“When the top management took notice, that caused friction between her and them. There was actually a disciplinary panel set up to look into her conduct, and colleagues she closely worked with said she would text them at 6 AM, an hour to the start of her show, saying she won’t make it to work and request someone to hold her brief,”
The source added.
Another issue that led to her departure was the declining number of show ratings.
Kamene Goro joined Kiss Fm together with her former co-host Andrew Kibe after tendering their resignation at NRG Radio where they made their names.
A few months later, in July 2020, Kiss Fm fired Kibe and replaced him with comedian Jalang’o.
Jalang’o said goodbye to the station in February 2022 to run for the Lang’ata parliamentary seat, which he won.
After Jalang’o’s exit, Kamene got a new co-host, comedian Oga Obinna, who joined the station in March 2022.
