Jalang’o Quits Milele FM Hours After Surviving The Mediamax Purge

Milele FM breakfast show co-host and comedian Felix Odiwuor alias Jalang’o has left the station owned by Mediamax.

This comes hours after he survived the Mediamax Purge, which has seen over 100 employees shown the door through an SMS at night.

In a message posted on his social media pages, Jalang’o said that he has been missing from work since he could not agree with the human resource department of working terms, after his salary was slashed by half.
