Popular radio presenter Njuguna Gicheha popularly known as Man Nyari has finally broken his silence days after he was fired from Kameme FM.
Man Nyari, who was hosting the popular show 'Njanjo Ya Muturire', was among 160 employees who were sacked on Wednesday by Mediamax Network Limited.
On Saturday morning, Wamucii Wa Kinyari, who hosts ‘Rwiga rwa Kiroho’ was introduced as the new host of 'Njanjo Ya Muturire' show which simulcasts on Kameme FM and its sister station Kameme TV.
In a video on his YouTube channel, Man Nyari said his sacking was not because of any wrongdoing but was a victim of Wednesday's retrenchment exercise by the company.
He thanked his fans for giving him overwhelming support for the years he worked at the station, noting he would be glad to return if the company decides to give him another chance.
"The contract I signed with God to serve humanity has not come to an end. I will be happy if Kameme renews my contract or God sends me to another platform to continue doing what I was doing," he said.
Man Nyari first joined Kameme as an actor in a radio play known as 'Micii Ni Ndogo' which attracted a huge audience.
Due to his popularity, he was employed as a comedian and paired with Njogu Wa Njoroge to co-host breakfast show 'Arahuka'.
When Njogu left, Man Nyari teamed up with Gatonye Wa Mbugua in the morning programme which is very popular among Kikuyu listeners.
Before his sacking, he was co-hosting night show 'Mawatchmen' alongside Kamau Wa Kamlesh.
However, Man Nyari, who is also a renowned gospel musician, seemed to be more inclined towards Njanjo Ya Muturire show and he says he was 'disappointed' he will be no longer hosting it.
The popular programme seeks to reunite lost family members with their relatives and before he left Man Nyari had reunited more than 200 families with their long lost loved ones.
"I know you're greatly disappointed for what happened. You expected, as usual, to hear me on Kameme FM and Kameme TV which didn't happen. I also feel disappointed but one thing I know there is God in heaven who always vindicate his people."
"I know I have fought a good fight and the work I have done for the voiceless will always testify for me before God.
"I know God has placed an open door before me. Keep praying for my heart. The blessing the lord was upon Jacob and not in the uncle's flock. So wherever I shall go am blessed," the presenter wrote on his Facebook page.
