Kris Darling Fired by NTV Ahead of ODM’s Kibra Nominations


The Nation Media group has terminated its contract with popular Reggae deejay following his bid to vie for the Kibra seat.

The deejay has been hosting the popular Jam Rock show that airs on NTV a TV station owned by the media group.

An executive at the media house says the deejay was laid off because of his political interest which is in violation of his contract and contradicts the editorial policy.

The popular deejay will however have two more shows before  his replacement picks up.

“Kris has made his decision that he is getting into politics and as per the editorial policy, he left us with no choice but to terminate his contract as the host of the Jam Rock Reggae Show. This decision was mutual between both parties. We wish him well in his future endeavors. He will, however, host two more shows to bid the fans bye,” said the head of Production at NTV, Justus Tharao.

The media house will however still hold its deal with Darling’s Dohty family for the show.

He is among 1o aspirants who will be seeking the party’s ticket on Saturday when ODM conducts its nominations.
