Veteran swahili news anchor Swaleh Mdoe has been demoted from Managing Editor for Swahili services at Royal Media Services for an alleged misconduct at work.
According to Business Today, Mdoe, a house hold name in the media industry, will be replaced by Jamila Mohammed who just resigned at Nation Media Group.
It’s not a secret Mdoe is knee-deep in debt and has been looking for different ways to pay up as auctioneers have started picking his possession.
Recently, his Mercedes Benz C200 was repossessed by a bank after he couldn’t come up with enough to clear an overdue loan. Mdoe reportedly owes four banks various amounts of loans which prompted him to opt for selling his kidney to clear the loan. The announcement allegedly left many including his bosses at Royal Media shocked and annoyed over the bad publicity.
Mdoe has not responded to the stories doing rounds.
