Kanyira, who had worked for the Kikuyu radio station for 17 years was shown the door on Wednesday when Mediamax Network Limited (MNL) announced the mass firing of about 160 employees.

MNL own Kameme FM, Kameme TV, K24, People Daily, Milele FM and a number of vernacular radio stations.

Kanyira, a news and sports anchor, took to social media to announce he was leaving the station, although he did not give the specific reason why the company had terminated his services.

"Kwaherini for those days we have been together in Kameme. Thanks to my fans for your support for the last 17 years. To the best of my knowledge I have offered my service to this station in full capacity," he posted on Facebook.

However, after a few hours, the talented presenter revealed he has landed a new job but he did not disclose his new work station immediately.

"Good people thanks for your concern. It has taken God only a few hours to answer your prayers. My services have been absorbed elsewhere. will update you on my new station tomorrow (Thursday)," Kanyira posted.

In the past, Kanyira had left the Kameme temporarily to run for the Tetu parliamentary seat but he has been unsuccessful in his two attempts; in the 2013 and 2017 polls.
