Former NTV journalist Lolani Kalu has refuted claims he was laid off from NTV back in 2017.

Speaking on an interview with Bonga na Jalas, the 56 year old veteran journalist said he took an early retirement.

Kalu said there had been a notice that some people would be laid off but he personally was not laid off.

He added that he has kept in touch with his former colleagues and even the management and there is no bad blood.

“I was never fired from NTV as people say. There were layoffs set to happen but myself and a few others were given the option of an early retirement and  I opted to take it. I left NTV in good terms and even pocketed my retirement benefits. To date I can still walk into NTV if I have a product and they will buy my content because we have kept in touch.” He said
