His and Adelle’s replacements; Andrew Kibe and Kamene Goro should have started the new show on July 1 but have since been dragged to court by their former employer, NRG Radio over a non-compete clause in their contracts.

The two resigned from NRG Radio and paid their ex-employer three months salary in lieu of notice.

NRG Radio asked the court to “grant a temporary order of injunction restraining the Respondent from performing services for, carrying or being engaged or interested or concerned directly or indirectly or publicly identifying with the promotion of or the services provided by, any other radio station within the Republic of Kenya or in any business which in anyway competes with the Applicant’s business pending the hearing and determination of this application.”
