Ken Mijungu is a real definition of your network is your net-worth. The former NTV anchor lost his job at NTV a few months ago but looks like he has bounced back.
Mijungu has now opened up on his shocking sacking and said that he took it well because he had planned for any eventuality long before.
He says he harbors no ill feelings towards his former employer, the Nation Media Group: “If I hadn’t gone, someone else would have gone. I look at it like everyone is the same.”
He added, “If I didn’t leave someone else would have left.”
Mijungu revealed that the reason he was able to bounce back from the retrenchment so quickly was that he had always been doing side-hustles since he started employment.
One of his side-hustles is as a lawyer where he does consultancy for his clients while another was that he hires out premium cars to executive clients.
Ken attributed his success in media and in his side hustles to his professional work ethic and exceptional job performance.
And had Mr. Mijungu lost any friends during this trying time?
“Not even one person has kept away” he enthused! “Not even one. Even the politicians have stuck with me. The first person to call me after I confirmed that I had lost my job was Kipchumba Murkomen.”
He added, “The second person Belgut MP, Nelson Koech. I have even received messages from Francis Atwoli and Raila Odinga. If I wanted to get work elsewhere I wouldn’t tarmac because I am a professional and do my job well.”
