Debarl was fired in July last year as the media house sought to cut back on cost due to the negative impacts of the Covid-19 pandemic.
“It was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair. Thank you NMG for the opportunity. Work continues apace,” said Debarl.
Kiguta quit the Mediamax-owned station on December 6 citing “fundamental disagreement on the editorial processes and direction the show was being forced to take”.
“It is with regret that today I announce that I will not be returning to the program. Owing to a fundamental disagreement on the editorial processes and direction the show was being forced to take, I suspended my services as an independent contractor to the show on 21st November 2020 My decision was guided by the Code of Conduct contained in the Media Council of Kenya Act which guides all journalists practicing in the republic of Kenya. As a result. I can no longer in good conscience continue to be a part of Punchline,” she said.
