Shaffie Weru Salary: Days after radio personality Shaffie Weru was fired from Radio AFrica Group’s Homeboyz Radio, his salary has been revealed.
The salary was revealed in a demand letter that Shaffie has written to the management of the station. The demand letter was first revealed by popular blogger Robert Alai, who is a friend of Shaffie, and had not been independently verified by the time of press.
According to the letter, Radio Africa was paying Shaffie up to Sh. 682,500 per month for his services at Homeboyz Radio. In the letter, Shaffie has demanded for 8,190,000 being the salary for 12 months for unfair dismissal. He is also demanding an additional one month’s salary, and a gratuity worth Sh. 12,285,000. The demand letter shows that Shaffie is asking over Sh. 21 million from Radio Africa.
Shaffie was fired together with popular Dj Joe Mfalme on saturday night. The sack came hours after the East African Breweries announced that it had suspended advertising with the Radio Africa Group over rape slurs that the presenters had made.
The slurs were made after a woman revealed in court that she had been thrown off the 12th floor of a building by a man whom she had just met for a first date, leaving her immobile and paralysed. The victim Eunice Wakimbi told Principle Magistrate Esther Kimilu that the suspect, Moses Njoroge had pushed her to the tragic fall after she rejected his sexual advances during their date. The fall caused her serious pelvic injuries.
