Journalist Joey Muthengi Leaves Citizen TV

Citizen TV journalist Joey Muthengi has called it quits at the Royal Media Services (RMS) owned media house.

Sources intimated to us that the ‘Day Break’ and ‘10 over 10′ host handed in her resignation on Wednesday.

Other reports indicate that she had been summoned for disciplinary action when she decided to ambush the four directors with a one-week notice.

Joey allegedly landed in trouble after doing an advert with betting company Betin, a rival to RMS-owned Shabiki.

This is said to have created a conflict of interest in promoting a rival company given that she is a Citizen TV anchor.

The former rapper turned TV host became a Betin brand ambassador after signing a deal rumoured to earn her a six-figure income.

According to insiders at the media house, Joey might have considered quitting owing to the lucrative earning from the deal compared to her salary as a TV host.

Earlier in the year, Joey and celebrated Kenyan footballer McDonald Mariga spent time in Italy shooting adverts.

Other sources indicated that she is reportedly leaving soon to Italy for another series of shoots.

She started as a radio personality on 98.4 Capital FM from 2009-2013 hosting and producing the popular youth show ‘Hits Not Homework’.

She has been part of the new re-branded ‘Power Breakfast’ co-hosting with Fred Indimuli and Willis Raburu since June 2016
