Muthengi resigned in November following a row with the Maalim Juma Road based media station’s management over her appearances on Betin adverts, a move which drew the fury of Royal Media Services (RMS) owner S.K Macharia, who also owns a b*****g company, Shabiki.
RMS does not run other b*****g companies adverts while editors are also not allowed to publish stories on any b*****g company other than Shabiki regardless of their editorial significance.
