Kiss 100 FM presenters Felix Odiwuor alias Jalang’o and Kamene Goro were on the morning of Wednesday July 22 forced to air their breakfast show from home.
This makes them the first radio presenters in the country to carry out their duties from home.
In a Facebook post, Jalang’o said they had also taken COVID-19 tests and were awaiting the results.
“Good morning! So yesterday we took the COVID- 19 Test! We will be working from home to allow the office to be cleaned and also our results will be out later today,” part of the radio presenter’s post read.
This comes just nine days after Jalang’o joined Kiss 100 FM from Milele FM, where he co-hosted a show with his close friend Alex Mwakideu.
The pandemic has hit the media industry hard and Royal Media Services, government-owned KBC and Kijabe street based Mediamax Network Limited have recorded cases.
A number of journalists have come out to announce that they had tested positive for the novel virus.
The affected scribes include Citizen TV presenter Jeff Koinange, Citizen TV political reporter Stephen Letoo and KBC radio presenter Bonny Musambi.
Citizen TV’s Victoria Rubadiri on Wednesday July 22 announced that she tested negative for the virus.
She however stated she would be more careful and continue to observe protocols so as to keep those around her safe.
“I was tested for COVID-19 earlier this week and thankfully, the results came back negative. Even thought it is good news, I still need to live as if I am positive to keep the ones I love, and work with and randomly interact with safe,” she said.
In its latest update on COVID-19 cases on Tuesday July 21, the Ministry of Health announced that an additional 397 people had tested positive for the coronavirus.
