NRG Radio, one of the newest stations in the country has sued two of its former stars; Kamene Goro and Andrew Kibe who have since left the station for Radio Africa’s Kiss FM.
The station, which caters for the much coveted youth demographic, took their fight with the two anchors to the Employment and Labour Relations Court on Thursday.
A source tells eDaily the lawsuit is over a breach of their non-compete and for leaving without serving the correct notice period.
“They woke up one day and told management that they were leaving,” says the source. “They informed the company of their leaving on a Tuesday and left three days later. Their notice was supposed to be one month.”
The lawsuit is bound to get ugly and more behind the scenes stories will be exposed when the proceedings begin.
“The non-compete details that the two would have spent sometime off-air to give the station some time to reorganise their strategy and look for replacements,” our source added.
