It is now almost a month after K24 sacked news presenters and anchors in one of the most brutal corporate sackings in Kenya. One of those who lost their jobs in the sackings is Eric Njoka. He has now come out to share how he is coping after losing his job.

Njoka shared his experience during an interview on the show Confessions with Marya that airs on TV47. “I was not ready for it, but I expected it,” he said. Njoka also said that he was not happy in the way the sackings were carried out, noting that the manner in which the media station owned by the Kenyatta family acted was not appropriate.

Njoka further explained that he took the time to focus on himself and how he wanted to proceed. “I never took leave for the six years I was working at K24 TV. So I am taking this time to take a break. I have been reconnecting with family and friends and taking life easy,” he said.

He further announced that he is currently not keen on joining a rival station. “As I take time to rest, I am also strategizing on which direction I want my career to take. I am also looking for opportunities beyond the country,” he said.

Njoka acknowledged that the local media industry is facing challenges due to the advent of social media and digitization of news. “Everybody is a journalist nowadays, all you need is a camera and you post on social media where everybody can see,” he said.
